In a recent article, Dr Richard Brouse, explored some of the sources of Toxicity in our lives and the unfortunate consequences of this toxicity. Not only are there many different sources of toxins, there are also many levels of toxicity! Oh my…
There are many sources of toxins in our busy industrial world. From automobiles to the food we eat, toxins are in our word. Yes, I said the food we eat. Farmers are using more and more pesticides, herbicides and GMO plants. The pesticides and herbicides linger in the food and ground water, making there way into our bodies on a daily basis. People are having allergic reactions to foods now due to the GMO process. The combining of genes from one plant to another is creating new allergies and sensitivities that have not existed before.
Water, air, plastics, cosmetics, building materials, fabrics, detergents and fabric softeners, household cleaners, carpets, personal care items and air fresheners are just a partial list of possible chemical pollutants that we encounter each day. Also, we need to remember the prescription drugs we take along with over the counter medications that we take. All have ingredients that our bodies have to filter and discard. And each time you eat food from a plastic container, you ingest chemical pollutants.
Now when we eat our food, let’s not forget items like food coloring, artificial flavorings, processed flours and sugars, preservatives, stabilizers and more. So I think the message here is to eat as much organic foods as possible, avoid processed foods and filter your water.
Using as many natural, organic products as well as cooking with glass if you use a microwave will help us have a healthier life. Many toxins can be avoided if we change to natural cleaners for the house and laundry. Clothing and bedding washed in toxic detergents are major sources of toxins since our skin in the largest organ of our body. Taking care of yourself, staying in wellness rather than disease care will make your life better and healthier. For more information on Toxins in your life, visit www.greenhome-healthyyou.com/
