Personal Care Chemicals in River

It seems everyday I can find an article regarding the affects of chemicals in personal care products on the body. I've blogged about several of them here, here, and here to list a few. Today I ran across something that was particularly troubling though.

The chemicals that aren't absorbed into your body from your personal care products are now contaminating rivers when you wash them off. This is happening even AFTER the gray water is treated and released into the river according to A study conducted by the USGS. Isn't it time to switch to an all-natural alternative for your body's sake and for the sake of our water?
