Food for Thought - Are You Sabotaging Your Health? The Poly & Pollen Connection

By Karla Jones Seidita

Plagued by spring pollen allergies?
Runny nose....watery eyes...overall congestion?

If you've tried all the usual remedies and haven't found much relief, it's time to ditch those poly clothes, sheets and towels for more natural materials.

Synthetic fibers rubbing against each other create static electricity with every move you make and those static charges attract pollen like a high powered magnet.

The pollen particles are microscopic but each breathe you take will be loaded with all the stuff that makes you sneeze and wheeze.

Sleep on poly sheets wearing poly pajamas and you're headed for pollen over load.

What's the solution?

Ease up on the synthetics.
Choose 100% natural fibers like cotton, linen, flax, and silk.
You'll magically feel better.

So simple but so effective.
