Environmental Health and How Is Yours?
You see it everywhere you go. You are constantly asked to
become more environmentally friendly in order to save our planet.
After all, without our planet earth, where would you be?
Perhaps a second question should also be asked, what are
you doing for your environmental health?
There are many toxins surrounding us that we don’t have
immediate control over. But don’t
despair, there are some toxins you can do something about.
So why not eliminate those you do have control over?
For example, are you aware of how many toxic chemicals
there are in your home, food and personal care products that you unconsciously
choose to be surrounded by? Our
bodily systems are so overloaded with these poisons, that just like our planet
earth, we are destroying our organs.
These toxins cause irritation and disrupt the normal
processes of our body. They can
inflame, weaken, and eventually destroy the tissue of various organs, glands and
This increase in toxic chemicals has given birth to new
classes of diseases and autoimmune disorders.
In addition, various chronic and degenerative diseases which have been
associated with the elderly are now becoming more common amongst the young.
You may not be able to eliminate all toxins, but you do
have some control and can eliminate some toxins – so why not go for it?
Do you want to increase the quality of your life?
Then it’s time to take care of your environmental health.
Avoiding the following will help:
MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)
Sulfates (commonly added to dried
Artificial Coloring Agents
Preservatives (BHT & BHA)
Nitrite & Nitrate (used to preserve
meat for centuries)
Olestra (fake fat)
Genetically Modified Foods
Irradiated Foods (even microwaves)
Xenoestrogens (disrupt endocrine system by
bonding to estrogen receptor sites), they include:
Building Materials (household plants, air filters and
opening windows and doors are helpful):
Household Cleaning Products
Personal Care Products
Electromagnetic Pollution (may be major factor in
development of cancer)
Don’t be overwhelmed, you can work through this a bit at a
time. Search through the list and
start with those that would be the easiest to change and gradually work your way
from there. I personally find
cleaning products and personal products an easy start.
Good luck and have fun with it.
