Every day, we are exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals through products like pharmaceuticals, pesticides, packaged foods, household products, and environmental pollution.
As we have become more exposed to chemical-laden products and to toxic chemicals in food, air, and water, we have been confronted with an accelerating rate of chronic illnesses like cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivity, autism spectrum disorders, ADD/AD(H)D, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Three major categories of toxicants include infection, heavy metals and toxicants. Every year, there are over 5.5 billion lbs/yr in the world. PCBs studies show altered neurons (longer, more complicated) and these pesticides bioaccumulation in food, especially fish, peanuts and eggs.
PCBs bio-magnify up the food chain, the Inuit have highest levels and the Great Lakes in Canada have 9.6 times greater concentration than other bodies of fresh water.
