Toxins, Toxins in the Air… Toxins, Toxins Everywhere
Imagine if there was something you were doing every day that was slowly killing you and you couldn’t stop doing it… and I am not referring to smoking… I am referring to breathing.
Facilities in the U.S. released nearly 5 billion pounds of toxins into the air in 2015. Seventy-two million pounds are known carcinogens. In 2015, the city of Chicago experienced 68 days when the air quality was too unhealthy for children, elderly and the ill. Coal-fired power plants spew sulfates, nitrates and mercury into the air. These compounds have been linked to more than 20,000 premature deaths each year.
In 1989 alone, the EPA estimates, in its Toxic Release Inventory National Report that 2.4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the atmosphere. And this is just one year! Here is a partial list of common toxicity signs: fatigue, lethargy, depression, headaches, allergies, chronic infection, frequent colds, nervousness, sudden anger, memory loss and joint pains.
What can you do?
- One easy way to reduce the effects of these toxins in your system is to increase the nutrients in your diet that counteract cell damage caused by free radicals. What does this mean to you? Eat and supplement with antioxidants. Antioxidants bind with and render harmless the cell-damaging free radicals.
- You can take a supplement with zeolite. Zeolites act as magnets drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage and removing them from the body.
- Eat organically.
- Install a water filter in your home.
