The important question is not if you are toxic…
but how toxic are you?
How do these toxins get into your system? We are all subjected to toxins every day through our air, food, water, clothing, cosmetics, teeth fillings, and thousands of other home products.
Heavy metals, pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, and other toxic substances are found in everyday existence and are frequently hard to avoid entirely. Although your natural biochemistry does its best to rid of these toxins, your body can’t keep up with the 70,000+ different toxins found in American products today.
Let’s put it this way, in a study done by Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York with 9 random participants, they found an average of 91 harmful chemicals and pollutants in their blood and urine. The testing group showed traces of 167 different chemicals where 76 cause cancer, 94 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 79 cause birth defects or abnormal development. It’s also estimated that we are exposed to hundreds of thousands of toxins every day.
