Is Your Life Toxic?

In the United States, there are approximately 77,000 man made chemicals vs. 8,000 in Europe. These chemicals surround us. They are in everyday things that we encounter hundreds of times a day, such as cleaning products, flame retardants in furniture and carpet, health and beauty products, and even in our water! And on average, we encounter 62 of these toxins per day.

Studies have found an average of 232 industrial chemicals in the fetal cord blood of babies at birth.

National Geographic reporter, David Duncan, was skeptical about the longevity of chemicals in our environment. Do they really affect us? Do they stay in our systems? He had blood testing done at Mt. Sinai Medical Center and was shocked to discover that he had numerous toxins in his blood, including DDT, Bisphenol-A, Phthlates, PVC and Industrial Chemical compounds. The most shocking was DDT since it had been banned decades ago. But since it never breaks down it can be passed down from generation to generation!
