How to Deal With Environmental Toxins

Environmental toxins of modern-day life- the pollutants, chemicals, other synthetic substances- are more than the body can handle. The body doesn’t know what to do with foreign substances like environmental toxins. It will store them outside of the regular elimination system, so we don’t get poisoned. Those poisonous environmental toxins start building up in our body fat. A disease is not an event, it is a process. All diseases have a cyclic course: a beginning, a maturation stage and a terminal or ending stage. Diseases do not just happen. There is always a starting point or a set of contributing factors as it is the case for environmental toxins that bring about illness.

There is always a cause. The World Health Organization is pointing the finger at environmental toxins as key contributors to disease. Medical science is engaged in two separate searches in environmental toxins; one for causes and another for cures. But you don’t need to wait until they know all the answers before you act to lower your risks. You can disrupt the cycle by lowering the toxic burden you place on your body.

Your body was not designed to deal with the onslaught of toxins of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollution, water pollution, etc. By decreasing the amount of environmental toxins you ingest and taking steps to cleanse those that have built up in your body, you can reduce your risk.

Relationship Between Health and Environment

We are living in a world of contrasts. Scientific and technological progress has brought advanced health care system; many diseases today that were fatal in the past, if not eradicated, are brought under control. As a contrast, people living in developed countries are suffering from cardiovascular diseases and cancer associated with inappropriate diet and stressful life.

Industrial revolution brought social and technological development, but also introduced pollution on large-scale. With modern industry things have just got worse. When the extent of industry was limited, contamination area was reduced to immediate vicinity affecting health and safety of those workers directly involved in production. In a modern global society we live in today this problem has become, well, “global”. The toxic that is most common in our environment is lead; it is used in vaccines, pesticides, antiperspirants, building materials, gas and even found in drinking water. If we think about global population growth and its growing needs and industry relying on components that are toxic, we can assume that industrial development has a devastating impact on environment and public health.

Earth was respected as a living, breathing body that needed to be nurtured and protected.  Continue reading “Relationship Between Health and Environment”
