In September 2004 the EU implemented legislation that banned using over 1,000 chemicals of concern in personal care products. The prohibited chemicals were those known or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation, or birth defects. The EU ban has served being a wake-up demand many US companies who market a few overseas. In response some companies have replaced toxins in their goods, for example phthalates, parabens, and formaldehyde with non-toxic alternatives. People who are desperate for love will attract the unsuspecting Empath in their mind. The innocent Empath often pays the cost of their kindness. It's a natural tendency to the person in pain to love their rescuer. Lines tend to get blurred. The Empath often gets hurt in the process. I have experienced this myself. It's painful to the Empath to view someone else experiencing emotional distress. I have personally been drawn into other people's suffering this way. I find myself being released these situations disoriented and wondering so what happened. Alicante carries a small city centre, so that you can visit most of the tourist locations by foot. The city is pre-historical and hence there are various historical places of interests in Alicante which are worth a trip. Iglesia de Santa Maria - the 15th century church ? is one such edifice, also the oldest in Alicante. The interesting aspect with Iglesia de Santa Maria is that it was obviously a mosque throughout the Moorish times. The MUBAG and Town Hall are found quite nearby. Located 5km from your city centre may be the Monastery de la Santa Faz, that is a great tourist attraction worth visiting.
