Forty to fifty years ago, we were using products that we would never dare think of using today because we’ve discovered that they are unsafe and cause health issues. The two that come to mind are lead paint and asbestos based insulation.
I had a startling thought the other day, as I wondered what products we’re using today that will be looked at in the 2050’s as completely unsafe and banned from use.
I’m sure there are some out there, and that’s not even the worst part. The worst part is that based on how much more processing we’re doing, my guess is that some of the stuff we’re using today is even worse than the lead paint and asbestos and/or there are probably going to be more products identified.
On that encouraging note, have a great weekend!
