I have always strived to lead a healthy life. I think everyone is trying their best. We all try to eat healthy and untreated food and live with as few chemicals and chemical products as possible. But reality does not allow us to do that because chemicals are a must-have in today’s life.
Chemicals and Christians: Compassion and Caution by Martha McLaughlin is a touching book that talks about the daily harmful effects of chemicals on our lives. We all live convinced that a serious illness will bypass us. But with this way of life, serious diseases like cancer are waiting for us around the corner. So many products that we use every day are full of chemicals. Even though we know it, we still use them thinking nothing will happen to us, and that scares me the most. I never knew that I was doing such harm to my body by using certain products. Sheets, food, shampoos, makeup, deodorants, and more are full of harmful ingredients that we consciously take into our bodies.
Martha McLaughlin is caring for those who were affected by illnesses caused by certain chemicals. She felt that she needed to show the dark side of the industry that poisons us every day. Chemicals and Christians: Compassion and Caution is divided into several chapters, and every chapter is dedicated to a certain stage of illness caused by chemicals Martha McLaughlin recognized in herself and others. We can read about the symptoms and conditions that are common and related to chemically ill people. I am thankful that I had the chance to read this book as I have learned a lot from it. I love that Martha rewarded us with quotes from the Bible at the beginning of every chapter. Those quotes show us that taking care of ourselves is very important. I also appreciate that Martha provided natural alternatives for products we use every day. I will try to convert to a healthier lifestyle after reading this book.
I have found no errors while reading this book, and I can tell it is professionally edited. There are no graphic scenes or profanity present in it. There is nothing to dislike about the book.
I am giving this book a solid 4 out of 4 stars. Chemicals and Christians: Compassion and Caution is a perfect book for those who want to live a longer and healthier life. I recommend this book to everyone because I think it is highly important for us to know what we are doing to our bodies. This book is not suitable for the younger population because it discusses the theme of a demanding topic that is not appropriate for them.
