Environmental Toxins & How to Detox with Natural Diet

You’ve heard how everything happens for a reason?  My husband and I lamented over the loss of decking contracts last fall as we were anticipating that extra income to get us through the Christmas shopping season and winter power bill cost hikes.  Not to mention, it was the first time since our courtship that we were able to work together on the same job as a team.  Not only did I love gaining his respect with the chance for him to see my hard work ethic firsthand after 15 years of working in separate industries, but I truly relished the toiling physical labor and feeling of strength that I gained as I kept up with his construction work pace quite readily. 

This video reveals a case where a lady died after a sudden illness, and since the autopsy revealed toxic levels of arsenic in her body, her husband was arrested for attempted murder.  In an attempt to prove his innocence, a heavy metal screening was performed on him as well…to uncover astonishing levels of arsenic poisoning in his system.  Further investigations discovered that they had been carpenters and specialized in none other than decks made from pressure treated wood.

I remember as we would pick out the materials at the local hardware store being concerned about the slimy green powder that coated the pressure treated pine lumber.  I was almost as aggravated that store employees wouldn’t pick out the wood for you without choosing crooked, inferior pieces.  Although I washed my hands as we left the store, the exposure continued throughout the grueling 16 hour work days as we rushed to get the job completed on time. 

I have learned that the EPA banned arsenic to be used in pressure treated wood after 2002, & while the “alternative coatings are less toxic,” they “still present some risks to consumers,” says ConsumerWatch.com. Yet, they do not explain what those risks or coatings are. Hmm. So, protective gloves were for sissies, I had thought in the past.  Perhaps this is a reason pride is considered a deadly sin.  Ya think? 

Radhia Gleis, M.Ed., C.C.N. is a certified clinical nutritionist who does a wonderful job opening our eyes to the world that bombards us with toxins daily.  She also gives a good summarization of liver function and why a healthy liver is so important. 

Don’t be embarrassed…She admits herself that she turned to natural health and nutrition after years working as an airbrush graphic artist.  “It never occured to me that blowing rainbows out of my nose was a bad thing!” 

However, once her own health declined, she began learning and hasn’t stopped since.  Now, she’s here to empower you with tons of info and the simple suggestion:   If you can change it [the # of toxins in your home], then do so! 

She further encourages us that Dr. Devra Lee Davis, former Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary of Health, advises that if we could reduce – not eliminate, but reduce – environmental carcinogens [cancer causing agents] alone, we could save 50,000+ lives a year from cancer. 

Did you know that in 1901 only 1 in every 8,000 people got cancer?  Since the Industrial Revolution took over, in 2002 the documented rate had risen to 1 out of 2.  That’s correct:  half of the population can expect to get cancer in their lifetime, and if they rely solely on the current medical treatments of chemotherapy and radiation, all are certain to die either during their first bout with cancer or later on as it returns.  There is hope.  Stick with us…follow our site [via free email subscription] and bit by bit we will show you how to literally regain control over your own life.

Below is a list of the top 5 household products that are proven by the National Cancer Prevention Coalition to cause cancer.  Beside them, you will find natural, safe alternatives to each of these home products.  Take note that women who work inside the home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer due to increased exposures to these chemicals used everyday in the home.
