Daily Toxin Intake
I want to illustrate to you the amount of toxins that bombard us daily. For this example, we'll say that your body can effectively process and expel 1 million toxins in 24 hours. Any more than that and your body's overloaded.
The problem is we take in far more than that on a daily basis. In an average lifestyle, the following toxins may enter your body daily, that's every 24 hours.
Toxins from Air: 200,000
- Paint Fumes
- Air Fresheners
- Cleaning Supplies
- Carpet Out-Gassing
- Fossil Fuels
- Chemtrail residue
Toxins from Water: 150,000
- Prescription Drug Residue
- Rocket Fuel (Perchlorate)
- C8 (the Chemical used to make Teflon®)
- Bisphenol-A (Toxin used in making Plastic Bottles)
Toxins from Food: 325,000
- Fast Foods
- Boxed Foods
- Canned Foods
- Processed Foods
- Dessert Sugars
- Hydrogenated Oils
- Antibiotics & Hormones
- Genetically Modified Foods
Toxins from Beverages: 160,000
Toxins from Prescription Drugs: 180,000
- Liver Toxic Glues
- Fillers & Binders
- Artificial Colorings
- Synthetic Hormones
- Synthetic Chemicals
- Left-over Animal Parts from Meat Processing Plants
Toxins from Microbes (Parasites): 525,000
- All of these survive by feeding off of a host organism (you in this case).
- These harmful organisms consume your vital nutrients and then deposit waste matter (massive amounts of harmful acids & toxins) back into your system.
Toxins from Physical & Emotional Stress: 200,000
- Negative emotions cause the body to over-produce stress hormones & other compounds to fight these conditions. This is dangerous because the body can damage itself in the process.
Toxins from Heavy Metals: 130,000
- Food & Water
- Aluminum Cans
- Light Bulbs
- Mercury Dental Fillings
- Herbal Supplements
- Household & Auto Paints
- Chemically-Poisoned Fish
Toxins from Radiation (Causes Cell Damage & Death): 230,000
- Hair Dryers
- Household Appliances
- Fluorescent Lighting
- Electromagnetic Radiation
Total: 2,100,000 toxins every 24 hours - more than twice what I've proposed as a maximum tolerance!
So basically, your 1 million-toxins-daily body is being overworked in an effort to expel these 2.1 million toxins. Many of the toxins build up in your body and wreck havoc until they are removed. The energy it takes to make this effort is often unsuccessful. Even more important, your body pulls resources from elsewhere to combat these toxins. And this constant drain of your body's valuable resources leaves you weakened and vulnerable to the diseases the toxins can generate, because the job of expelling these toxins simply cannot get done.
Now can you see what's happening inside your body every day?
You begin to get the picture. To further illustrate the point: one packet of synthetic sugar can contain more than ten thousand toxic molecules in its ingredients! These toxins bombard your intestinal lining daily. And if you don't eliminate them, they can pass through the intestinal walls into your bloodstream where they begin the disease development process.
Green living is a matter of eating a healthy organic diet and having a toxin free environment. When you consider how long you could live, don't you want to have your best health? I know I do.
One thing more I want to share with you: I used one million toxins in my example to give a simple calculation. Really, that number is very low. Toxins are everywhere and they're not just going to go away. But there are things that you can do to improve your lifestyle.
