They say we spend about 80% of our time in our homes. In that time, most of us are exposed to hundreds of small doses of toxins in our personal and home-care products, from air fresheners to dish soap to skin lotion (see ewg.org) to the foods we consume.
The USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concludes the human body can handle a small amount of toxins without any adverse effects. The products on store shelves all meet the standards set forth by the FDA. In this modern day, each product we use could contain these small amounts of toxins and scientists are now discovering that those small amounts of toxins build up in our bodies, taxing our liver and kidneys unnecessarily and sometimes with great consequence.
Our bodies are over burdened with toxic load and we are see the effects in our wellness.
“It’s just a little.” They say.
But we the consumers are given the burden of proving these products harm us.
People tell me all the time that they aren’t sick, but then turn around and share about their headaches/migraines, sleeplessness, infertility, asthma, autism, adhd, eczema, gastrointestinal issues, unexplainable pain, sensitivities and allergies to foods and plants, and so much more.
We never truly understand how poorly we feel until we get well.
The silence from the decision-makers and influencers is Deafening.
Hardly anyone with powerful influence are talking about it.
The mainstream media and Government aren’t telling us about toxic load or body burden.
They aren’t telling us that because of toxic load, we have become a sick nation.
They aren’t telling us that the personal care, cleaning, and clothing markets are unregulated and that while the European Union has banned over a thousand toxic chemicals from their personal-care products, the USA has only banned 11 of those same toxins.
They aren’t telling us that since the introduction of “small amounts” of toxins in our foods and personal care products, we are seeing a rapid rise in poor health issues in otherwise healthy people.
They aren’t telling us about the outrageous growth we are seeing in diseases, disorders, and allergies in the people of the USA that aren’t genetic, things like infertility, asthma, autism, ADHD, eczema, gastrointestinal issues and food allergies, unexplainable pain, cancer and so much more.
They aren’t telling us that the average newborn has 287 toxic chemicals in their umbilical cords, 217 of which are toxic to the brain and nervous system.
They aren’t telling us about the people dying from cancer brought on by their environment (not genetic) at ridiculously young ages.
They aren’t telling us that since the 1940’s, prostate cancer is up to 200 percent, thyroid cancer is up 155 percent and brain cancer is up 70 percent per capita, and the American Cancer Society estimates a 50 percent rise in cancer rates by 2020.
And that’s just to name a few secrets they aren’t telling us about. (See cancer.org and ewg.org for more information.)
But we don’t need them to tell us because we’ve got this! This is a lifestyle change, not a fad or a diet. You have the power to take back your health and still enjoy this life to the fullest!
