Consequences of Toxin Overload
You've heard of polluted food, water, air- things that are out there. But did you know the same pollution is also in you?
The average person today has almost 300 toxic chemicals in his or her blood!
These chemicals, which can cause anything from liver damage to cancer, come from:
The air we breathe
The food we eat
The water we drink
Pollution emitted from factory buildings
The millions of personal care products that we use each day
According to recent research, the toxic chemicals in our cell phones, our computers, our perfumes, our shaving cream, and our clothes are present in our bodies!
Many synthetic chemicals have been introduced during the past 50 years in:
Industrial manufacturing products
Pharmaceuticals and their by-products
As a result, every day we are exposed to numerous chemicals, which are incorporated into countless consumer products currently available on the market.
What they found bodes ill for mankind today: The average adult today is a walking chemical plant!
Our body has a wonderful ability to constantly regenerate, detoxify and heal itself. However our detoxification system can become overloaded with toxic chemicals and substances that can retard its efficiency. Without a through cleanse, most of us, if not all, will remain that way for the rest of our lives.
It is shocking, but true.
Chemicals which are the by-products of industry, such as:
The incineration of municipal, medical and industrial waste
Chloride-bleaching processes for paper
Metal smelting methods
The manufacture of household and industrial chemicals
...have all been detected in human blood. Many of these compounds, which are absorbed by our body, stay there for years, and scientists' fear about their health effects are growing.
In the US, scientists have found that US residents have the world's highest level of perfluorochemicals in their bodies. Perfluorochemicals are a family of manmade chemicals that have been used for decades to make products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease and water.
Common uses include:
Stain-resistant carpets and fabrics
Components of fire-fighting foam
Other industrial applications
It takes the body at least 8 years to rid itself of these chemicals!
Although some of these chemicals benefit our standard of living - some chemicals for example, keep insects from ravaging crops and lift stains from carpets - they are also a source of our daily exposure to a cocktail of hazardous toxins, which can cost us our health, and lives. These toxins may end up in our blood and tissues. These bio-accumulated, persistent and toxic properties may take years or even never for the body to naturally get rid of them without the help of a proper detoxification program.
Recent scientific developments have enabled a shortcut in monitoring the risks of our exposure to such chemicals. Instead of measuring the concentration of toxins in the air, water and food, scientists have tested potentially hazardous substances within human samples (e.g.: blood). This allows them to estimate the toxin burden or toxicity (the total amount of a toxic substance in the body) of pollutants and synthetic chemicals. Toxicity is said to be a major contributing factor to compromised health.
The accumulation of toxic chemicals in the human body not only weakens our internal organs and affects our energy levels. The buildup of toxins also challenges our immune system and interrupts our body nutrient absorption. As the result, we become more susceptible to illnesses.
