The old saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” can apply to many offers that look better than they can possibly be. Now, it looks as though it may apply to the neighborhood dollar store. For many of us in the current economy, doing a fair percentage of our shopping at a dollar store is not an option. They may be the only low cost shopping option available in some areas. As reported in Infowars.com, a lot of the products on the shelves in these stores may be too good to be true. It turns out that many of them contain unsafe levels of chemicals or other toxins that are associated with adverse health consequences.
Pragmatic individuals would argue that people should know that “you get what you pay for,” as that other popular saying states. When you are buying a bottle of shampoo for one dollar, do you really believe you are getting quality ingredients? As some critics would point out, such as the natural-living experts at Amen Clinics, there is a world of difference between lower quality ingredients and downright dangerous ingredients. There are those who argue that the government is supposed to be protecting us from the latter. They seem to be falling down on the job since this information was brought to light by a non-governmental organization known as HealthyStuff. It is good to see that there are still some consumer advocates out there to pick up the slack when other watch dogs fail.
