While things like cigarettes and alcohol could technically fit under our toxins category, most of us would probably agree that they’re not exactly in the same category as, say, household cleaners. These substances are meant to be consumed and alter your current state. Alcohol is a depressant and drugs exist as both depressants and stimulants.

But as certain taboos begin to disappear and groups become less socially conservative, we see a change in what clean living means. While our grandparents and great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents may have been thinking about morality and the condition of their souls when they talked about clean living, today it’s becoming a movement more directly connected to health – a movement that’s overdue.
