From a Grist interview with the author of Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History. The topic was toxins in breast milk. It's a very simple observation but so true.

Q. Are there any products that you won’t use now? 
A. I really try to avoid very smelly personal care products. For example, things like room fresheners and toilet deodorizers — these things just make me nuts. Consumer culture tries so hard to convince us that we need to cleanse our homes with these really toxic products. So ironically, the cleaner we are, by consumer standards, the more polluted we become.
