What is your Toxic Footprint?
Everyone is thinking about their Carbon footprint but not their own toxic footprint
The following list is designed to help people who are suffering from illnesses and health conditions begin to think about the ways toxins enter their body.
It should not create fear or make you paranoid. A little knowledge
can help you make healthier decisions.
AIR QUALITY - If you breathe, you are pulling in toxins all the time
The air you breathe is affecting all your cells – yes we should all use a mask like they do in China to help prevent against airborne toxins but no one wants to look weird. Geo-Engineering is spraying heavy metals like Barium, Magnesium, Lead, Manganese, Aluminum, Iron, Sodium, and Specific Conductance (the ability of water to conduct a charge), were being found under unusual circumstances in our drinking water supplies all over the United States.
MATERIALS - Formaldehyde in car seats, mattresses, sofa’s etc
Yes pretty much everything you buy has levels of toxic gases that are released into the air and you are breathing them every single day. This “off-gassing” is a normal part of what happens when many materials are manufactured. It is important to understand the risk to your health and if you do have health problems, limit your exposure.
WATER - The water your drink is not what you think
You shower in toxins and toxic gases every day and don’t give it a moment’s thought. The Chlorine and Fluoride in the water is bad enough but when you take a long hot “steamy” shower, you are pretty much putting yourself in a gas chamber. Wonder why you feel sick or dizzy after a long hot shower? You just breathed gases. Additionally really “pure” water is very difficult to find. It is recommended that you filter your drinking water and also get a shower head filter. I have no affiliation with e-water.com and receive no benefit to refer you to their site for filtration systems.
SKIN CARE - Few realize what goes on the skin goes into the blood
Everything you put “on” your skin goes into your blood stream. Every cream, moisturizer or sun screen that has chemicals in it end up in your blood. It is very important that people choose wisely when it comes to the products they rub onto their skin. There are so many chemicals used in manufacturing that you are only exposing yourself to more toxins by not choosing wisely. If everyone makes better choices the toxic products will eventually be replaced with more natural ones.
FOOD - Shop at Sprouts? Think its 100% Organic?
Many of the so called 100% organic products fall under the “not-so-true” category. What constitutes a label that says 100% organic? Does it mean that the food was grown organically, or just not sprayed with chemical pesticides? What about preservatives that the FDA states are “acceptable” for human consumption? If you grow your own lettuce and pick it, you will see how long pure organic lettuce lasts versus the lettuce even sold at high end organic grocery stores.
SMOOTHIES - Did you know Cancer lives on Sugar?
Not all Smoothies are the same. Jamba Juice and Nektar Juice bar use frozen fruit and blend them with juices so they are pretty healthy. Smoothie King uses liquid sugar concentrates and just adds ice and sugary powders and are very bad for you. It has been proven that Cancer cannot live in an Alkaline body of 7.2% or higher so eat lots of fresh living veggies.
