Who Needs to Detoxify?
Who Needs to Detoxify?
Oct 15, 2008
Some of the worlds leading geneticists have begun to realize that genetics are secondary to toxicity, when it comes to disease.
Since people are taking ownership of their health and becoming partners with their physicians, detoxification has become the primary method of prevention. Instead of waiting for something bad to happen and having to go to the doctor, people are more proactive than ever before. This trend is recurring none too soon, because so many people are getting sick!
Look around you… Children suffer from cancer, diabetes, ADD, AD/HD, obesity, Asthma, to name a few. Adults and elderly are even worse off. Everyday we hear of yet another person in our circle of influence who’s been diagnosed with Cancer, MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome along with hundreds of other diseases.
It’s time to pay close attention to what is going on
An important part of understanding how to restore and protect our health is becoming informed about how toxic our environment is and how that impacts good health. We’re surrounded constantly by environmental toxins and pollutants. Chemicals and heavy metals are prevalent in skin care products; inside air is 1,000 times more toxic than outside air, foods are loaded with herbicides, pesticides and chemicals. Even medications intended to help us are comprised of toxic chemicals.
It is not surprising to learn that a great many of the diseases that are so prevalent today are directly caused by a weakened immune system because of these environmental hazards. With that in mind, the watchword in dietary supplements is going towards detoxification.
The need for detoxification is greater now than ever before in the history of mankind. In the 1950’s the chemical revolution began when wartime chemical manufactures lost the market for their product at the end of the war. Executives gathered to create a market for their products that were no longer in demand. It was determined that farmers were a good target market, and they went to work to create a need in the farming industry for chemicals.
Borne was the Chemical Revolution, with the introduction of herbicides and pesticides, forever changing our ecology, with wide reaching implications.
Within a matter of a few years, over 90% of all farms were treated with herbicides and pesticides. The chemicals weakened the plants, decreased the nutritional value of the soil and additional chemicals were needed to help ward off pests that previously did not widely damage crops.
Food sources were altered, air and water quality declined, the functions of the human body became burdened with more toxins than the body was designed to manage, and as a result, we are in the midst of a culture of illness and disease.
Each year, more than 200 new man made chemicals are introduced to the environment, most of which are poorly understood in relation to how they will impact our health. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently released a study that revealed that 100% of all tumors contain herbicides and pesticides.
Toxins Are Making us Sick!
Heavy metal toxicity is also at an all time high. Alzheimers and dementia has been connected with Aluminum toxicity, the main active ingredient in deodorant. Autism to Mercury, which has increased dramatically with the increase in number of vaccines given each year.
Some 70,000 chemicals are being dumped into our environment; 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. We live in a virtual sea of pollutants and carry many of these toxins within our bodies.
It was once thought that the placenta filtered out toxins, protecting unborn babies. It is now known that the best way for a woman to detoxify is to get pregnant because toxins are found even in unborn children, in large quantities. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group identified 287 industrial chemicals in babies’ umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system. This is a startling fact, and one that should motivate every young woman to detoxify before getting pregnant, to protect the next generation.
Drinking water nationwide is riddled with Arsenic, as well as other chemicals, antibiotics and toxins. The air that we breathe is complied of the same air that flows through the jet stream and contains over 1,500 metric tons of toxins. Amalgam fillings contain 50% Mercury, the most toxic substance on Earth. Vaccines, once thought to be Mercury free, are preserved with Thimerasol, a Mercury. Vaccines also contain Formaldehyde, an elbalming fluid, along with other neurotoxins.
Rain, falling from the jet stream, onto all crops, contain Mercury as well as other toxins. The toxins grow right inside the food, so you cannot simply wash them off. Then there is the prescriptions drugs that most people take, made of chemicals. Cosmetics, skin care products, household cleaners, carpeting, furniture all contain chemicals that were made by man. Everywhere we turn, even when we make better choices, we are burdening our bodies in this industrialized nation, with more chemicals and heavy metals than ever before in the history of mankind.
So who needs to detoxify? It is prudent to include every man, woman, child and animal… We Are All Toxic!
