Doesn't the Government Protect Us?
The fact is that the US government requires virtually no testing of chemicals before they are put in our food, beverages and everyday products. And an overwhelming amount of evidence is required before a substance is taken off the market.
*The AMA, EPA, and Consumer Product Safety Commission recognize the adverse health effects of toxic chemicals. Their guide called “Indoor Air Pollution” clearly links common Environmental Toxins to wheezing, worsening asthma and lung disease.
*The Congressional Office of Technology Assessment states “…causes of brain-related disorders are… pesticides, food additives… and cosmetic ingredients"

*Bisphenol A, found in plastics, was found to leach into liquids from containers like baby bottles. Canada promptly banned Bisphenol A - the US has failed to take it off the market after 2 Congressional Hearings
*The newly created class of chemicals called nanoparticles are being added to thousands of everyday products despite FDA warnings that they may be extraordinarily harmful to humans and the environment.
Why we get chronic illness
In the meantime, we are eating, drinking, breathing and absorbing these Environmental Toxins. Even simple
exposes us to
and triclosan. And our bodies have to do SOMETHING with all of that junk.
When taking in all of these substances, a good Detox System will help cleanse your bodyfrom all of these substances. This involves the immune system, the lymphatic system, the
lungs, digestive tract, etc. all working together. Almost every system can be affected by toxic build up.
Attempting to detoxify all of those substances takes energy. Most of these substances are toxic chemicals that our bodies were never designed to deal with. And many of these toxic chemicals mimic the female hormone estrogen. In fact, this is so widely known that scientists named an entire classification of chemicals as Xenoestrogens.
These Xenoestrogens are not exotic, rarely contacted chemicals. They are environmental toxins that we are in daily contact with like:
- Bisphenol A - present in most plastics
- Parabens - found in many cosmetics
- Organochlorines - ingredients found in pesticides
- Perfluorinates - used to make non stick pan coatings
We are quite adaptable beings and the body has many pathways for detoxification, but in the end we just don't know how our bodies are going to react to any of these man made substances.
Getting rid of your symptoms
