Is it really something to worry about

TOXICITY AND DETOXIFICATION
We are living in the most polluted environment in Earth's known history. We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics, pesticides, and herbicides.
We are also exposed daily to a variety of very unhealthy ingredients in many of the common, everyday products that we use. Many shampoos, deodorants, hair and skin products contain a laundry list of chemicals and additives.

Many of the foods that we eat at restaurants or buy at the grocery store are loaded with chemicals, preservatives, and additives. Do you ever read the box to see what's in the products and food items that you purchase, consume, and use every day or week? Where do you think all those unhealthy ingredients go?

Toxins accumulate and absorb into the body...where they can affect your body's health in very negative ways for years to come. Even health conscious individuals that live very healthy lifestyles are exposed to much more toxins than they realize.

As you reduce your exposure to toxins, it is still important to maintain a detoxification program. Even though you can greatly reduce your exposure, exposure to toxins will still occur. Most toxins are stored in the fat cells of your body. Therefore it is also recommended that you address this situation even though you may make dramatic changes to your exposure levels in the future.

OUR TOXIC ENVIRONMENT
In many plastics, and triclosan, found in antibacterial soaps and toothpastes are both suspected hormone disrupters.
Flame retardants, another class of petrochemical derivative that is also A hormone disrupter is found in furniture, toys, carpet, and electronics. Most chemicals used in the environment and in our homes have never been tested for safety. This includes those found in cleaning supplies, pesticides and even cosmetics. Many times it is only after the fact­ when a chemical has been used extensively- that it is ultimately proven unsafe- as was the case with lead, asbestos and most recently, petrochemicals such as BPA and other suspected hormone disrupters

HOW ARE WE TOXIC?
The CDC released a 2013 report with updated tables on the levels of 117 (of the 212 reported on in 2009) synthetic chemicals found in our bodies, also adding tables for 34 new chemicals. A recent government study found traceable levels of BPA in 93 percent of participants. High levels of flame retardants have been found in the breast milk of women across the country; Americans have the highest levels of flame retardants in their bodies in the world. And, the new factor in the equation of toxicity is the discovery that toxic substances may have harmful, even their most harmful, effects at every low levels. In a way this makes logical sense; synthetic chemicals are very powerful- think of how a small prescription pill can effect substantial changes in the body. Added to this toxic burden are the deleterious effects of GMO foods. Lastly, no research seems to have explored possible interactions of all of these chemicals in our bodies.

How Does Toxicity Affect the Body?
Different toxins do different damage. For example, hormone disrupters interfere with our bodies endocrine systems and with any of the functions they regulate- including metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep and mood. Women with higher levels of flame retardants in their blood take longer to get pregnant and have smaller babies. Another area of toxicity to consider is the toxicity that comes from stress. Stress and the toxic or negative emotions associated with it have been linked as a causal or aggravating factor in just about every disease condition.

We are living in the most polluted environment in Earth's known history. We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics, and pesticides that occupy cell receptor sites and block hormone utilization.

Consider the following statistics

  • 250% increase in breast cancer since 1980*
  • 1600% increase in birth defects since 1980*
    * National Center for Disease Control and Prevention- Center for Health Solutions
  • More than 95% of cancer is caused by environmental toxicity and diet {Source- Columbia University School of Public Health)
  • The average city water contains more than 500 chemicals {Source- USA Today)
  • Multiple studies show that most of us have between 300-800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies
  • The herbicide atrazine, found in 94% of our water supply, has been linked to birth defects, infertility and cancer. {Source- Pesticide Action Network)
  • The typical American home contains 3-10 GALLONS of toxic materials- everything from glass and bathroom cleaners to garden pesticides and fertilizers. Health effects of ingredients in common household products include:
    • Respiratory problems • Eye irritation • Cancer • Disruption of the endocrine system
  • The (EPA) reports that the air inside the typical home is 2-5 times more polluted than the air immediately outside- and in extreme cases, 100 times more contaminated

Did you know....

  • Air fresheners are made from neurotoxic solvents and synthetic fragrances that can cause headaches, mood swings, memory loss, and chronic fatigue?
  • Prepackaged lettuce is washed in a chlorine solution twenty times more concentrated than that found in an average pool?
  • Eye shadow has been found to contain unsafe levels of lead, cobalt, nickel, chromium, and arsenic.
  • Mouthwash containing alcohol is associated with an increased risk of throat and mouth cancers?
  • The artificial sweetener aspartame breaks down into carcinogenic formaldehyde during storage in the body?
  • Flea and tick control products can expose people to pesticides five hundred times greater than the recommended safe limits?
  • Microwave popcorn contains a flavoring chemical that is a relative of paint stripper?
  • The average adult uses 9 personal care products daily exposing them to 126 chemicals each day?
  • The average American child gets 5+ servings of pesticides residues in their food and water each day?- Pesticide Action Network www.panna.org

Systems of the body affected by toxins

The immune system causing an increased tendency to allergies and recurrent respiratory (nose, sinus or lung) or ear infections.

The defense systems of both animal and human bodies making them prone to cancer. {Infants and young children, as well as adults, are presently developing cancer at an alarming rate)

The brain and nervous system causing headaches, difficulty thinking or remembering, inexplicable emotional ups and downs, inconsolable depression, irritability, moodiness, aggression, hyperactivity or extreme fatigue.

The reproductive system causing a wide variety of sexual problems and infertility.

The endocrine system contribution to illnesses such as Diabetes, Thyroid Disease and weakened adrenal glands.

The muscular system causing twitches, tics, muscle pains or weakness, in time possibly leading to Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease.

The skeletal system causing chronic swelling and stiffness that eventually leads to pain and permanent joint deformities.

The heart and circulatory system causing high blood pressure or irregular heartbeats.

The blood vessels causing abnormal bleeding into the skin, joints, breasts, urine and elsewhere
