How to Verify Your Organic Pajamas are Real

March 22, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

When shopping for kids organic pajamas, you’ll quickly notice that there are a lot of related buzz words around organic. A lot of products will use words like natural or no-spray to talk about organic textiles, but there are ways to verify that the clothing you’re buying is actually organic.

You know the benefits. Boys and girls organic pajamas tend aren’t laced with chemicals, so they don’t contribute to respiratory problems. They are more sustainable, relying on farming infrastructure that doesn’t over-produce and overwork the land. It can be more affordable too.

So when you’re buying girls or boys organic pajamas, look for these signs to verify authenticity.

Logos

The two logos you want to see are for the Organic Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standard. These two bodies verify that cloth comes from sources that have been farmed organically, and that the materials were processed organically. You may be able to see small seeds still embedded in the some kids organic cotton pajamas as well. This isn’t a defect, rather a side effect of the organic processing methods that don’t chemically clean the clothing.

However, not every logo means the same standard of organic. For various reasons, farmers and textile makers utilize different processing standards. The OE 100 Standard essentially guarantees 100% certified organic fibers were used in the creation of the garment you’re looking at.

What if you don’t see any of these logos? Don’t panic! Any level of organic fabric is a good start, first and foremost. Your local shop may not understand the standards, may not know any suppliers and may be new to the market. Be an ambassador and request a higher grade, you’ll typically find retailers willing to take the plunge given the growing demand.

There is no arguing that prescription drug prices are on the rise, making it difficult for patients to purchase the medications they need simply because they can’t afford outrageous out of pocket expenses.

Live Longer and Better? Exercise

Speaking in Boston recently at the 34th Sports Medicine Symposium of the American Medical Association and the American College of Preventive Medicine, Dr. Walter M. Bortz, 75, said that health derives from four things— “design, external agency, internal agency, and aging”—and that we have such a built-in reserve that most of us have to lose 70 percent of our capacity before it becomes noticeable.

The Orlando Sentinel further reports that he said increased eating and decreased exercise may cause today’s kids to be the first generation in U.S. history to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.

Commenting on the conference, Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Richard T. Bosshardt wrote, “Much is made of anti-aging medicine, but that is really an attempt to modify bad effects of external and internal agency. Despite attempts to sell you a pill, diet supplement, or ‘secret’ herbal formula, we don’t have any practical ability to alter the aging process.” He recommends building one’s capacities through exercise and better diet.

Cancer Up With Longevity

Increases in life expectancy around the world have led to increases in some cancers as well, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has reported. Breast and lung cancers have doubled over the past 30 years, with 1.1 million women around the world diagnosed with breast cancer last year.

Stomach and cervical cancers have actually decreased thanks to improvements in hygiene and routine screening, Reuters reports.

With the number of smokers up in the Third World the past 20 years, lung cancer rates can be expected to continue to rise as well.

The highest rates of cancer among men are found in the United States, Hungary, and New Zealand; the lowest rates in Niger, Gambia, and Congo. For women, the highest rates are in the United States, Israel, and New Zealand, the lowest in Tunisia, Gambia, and Oman.

Professor John Toy of Cancer Research UK said that cancer still primarily afflicts those in the developed world, though he hopes that “new treatments will continue to improve the chances of surviving the disease.”
