Toxins are hidden in many common household items such as deodorants, shampoos, moisturisers, toothpaste and even tap water. While some of these toxins are claimed to be safe in “Moderation”, when you are applying or consuming them on a daily basis, the repeated exposure can create toxic load in our bodies and become a catalyst for disease.
Processed foods which contain refined carbohydrates, food colourings, artificial sweeteners, sugars or trans fats, or processed meats containing preservatives such as nitrates can be just as toxic. So food manufacturers can get away with using these toxic items in our food, we are told that they too are safe “in moderation”. The problem is, 70 percent of processed foods (including supposed healthy breakfast cereals) contain toxic artificial sweeteners, sugars or both. Almost all processed meat products contain carcinogenic nitrates and pretty much any food product found in a packet contains preservatives. So, if you are eating what is considered a standard diet, you will likely be overloading your body with a myriad of toxins on a daily basis.
So, what can we do? Firstly, avoid, or severely moderate anything that comes in a packet. Anything which contains ingredients you cannot pronounce, numbers you don’t understand and basically anything that didn’t exist 60 years ago or has more than one ingredient.
Secondly, make it your business knowing what is in products you either consume or apply to your body. It’s your body, your one and only vessel you have to carry you through life, so take an interest in what you are putting into it. If you bought a new car, you would make an effort to find out what fuel it runs on. Mistakably pump diesel into a petrol engine car and see what happens. The results are catastrophic. The fuel you choose to run your engine, is critical to the way your engine will perform.
