Our bodies are wonderfully made and are tremendously resilient. Yet we can eventually overwhelm them with long-term, low-level exposure to toxic chemicals, especially when combined with our inattention to proper nutrition, lack of exercise and lack of rest.
What’s all the fuss about toxins, food additives, pesticides, herbicides, etc.? Many factors such as environmental toxins, chronic stress and genetic predisposition, working together, weaken your body.
The average American consumes seven pounds of food additives per year, including chemical preservatives, artificial colorings, artificial flavorings, stabilizers, emulsifiers, and assorted other substances. We use chemicals to keep insects from ruining our crops, make our fabrics flame-retardant, our shampoos fragrant, our homes bug-free, and a host of other desirable objectives. But the result is that the typical U.S. home contains 1,500 hazardous substances and more than 10,000 food and chemical additives are allowed in the U.S. food supply.
