The Daily Dose: The Affect of Toxin on the Body


The Effects of Toxins On The Body

Toxins are all around us.  Toxins are present in our air, water and food supply.

Today we are exposed to more toxins than ever before. From artificial Flavors, sweeteners, and coloring in our food to the artificial dyes & chemicals in our clothing and home furnishings, as well as pesticide and herbicide residues on our fruits and vegetables.  Additionally, body care products and liquid supplements often have cancer-causing preservatives such as parabens and the plastics most people use to store their foods in have chemicals whose residues mimic the effects of estrogen in the body.

Being exposed to toxins is almost unavoidable and their adverse effects can be seen throughout society.  Babies are being born with umbilical chord blood toxin levels that are beyond EPA recommendations. Autoimmune problems and cancers are growing every year. Toxins are largely responsible for this.

Knowing that toxins are affecting us and where they are in our lives is key in developing an approach to limit their effects on us.
