Fabric softener part 2

ok so I happened to find a (never used) bottle of liquid Downey in my laundry room. This is what it says:

Ingredients: Contains Biodegradable fabric softening agents (cationic)

Wow. How imformative. *eye roll*

I wonder how long it will take for our government and our culture to put the pieces together .... cancer, autsim, alzheimers, asthma, allergies ... whats causing our immune systems to break down? what do we assault ourselves with daily? what do we do to our children when they are young and developing?

Antibiotics, vaccines*, hazardous cleaning products, chemicals in the cotton our clothes are made of, what we wash them with, dry them with, soften them with, chemicals in what we wash our dishes with, in our makeup, our soap, our furniture, our flooring, artifical dyes in our food, artifical preservatives, genetically modified foods, pollution, toxic perfumes, and on and on and on and on.

Hmmmm. Maybe someday this difficult mystery will be solved.

I was at the store yesterday getting some more detergent. I saw "free and clear" fabric softener sheets. So I looked at the back and it still said "softening agents".

I suppose they have all the same ingredients just without the fragrance? So a little better but still not great considering how it all works. Id just rather not have buildup on my clothes that needs to be covered up by something else! ick!
