The Most Common Ways Of Interacting With Toxins

Scientists are increasingly concerned that long term low level exposures to chemicals create a variety of health risks. They also worry that we do not yet know the impact of living with the cocktail of chemicals found in household air and dust. Testing for human health effects is normally done on single chemicals, but in the real world, we are all exposed to a variety of chemicals every single day.

How does our body become polluted with sludge?

How do we become toxic?

Where do we pollute ourselves?

There are 3 major ways we come into contact with toxicity – we breath it, touch it, and eat/drink it/ get injected.

Breath in.  Via Air:

  • General Air pollution
  • Household cleaning products and
  • Air Fresheners both contain two main chemicals called ethylene-based glycol ethers and terpenes.  Air fresheners in particular are linked to many volatile organic compounds, such as nitrogen dioxide, and some fresheners also contain paradichlorobenzene, the same chemical emitted by mothballs.
  • Chemical vapours from synthetic textiles in carpets from synthetic foam used in sofas, mattresses - high in PBDEs (flame retardants use polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PBDEs for short.) antimony, and formaldehyde.
  • From plastics and other petrochemical-based products
  • Crop spraying
  • Traffic fumes and smog
  • Mothballs: Since moths chew holes through clothing and other textiles, people pack away these stinky repellents to kill them. But studies on one active ingredient in some repellents,paradichlorobenzene, found that it can cause cancer in animals
  • Cigarette smoke - smoking or exposed to smoking of any kind getting ammonia, formaldehyde
  • Lead Paint
  • Glue in Pressed Wood Products: The glue that holds the wood particles in place may use urea-formaldehyde as a resin. The U.S. EPA estimates that this is the largest source of formaldehyde emissions indoors. Formaldehyde exposure can set off watery eyes, burning eyes and throat, difficulty breathing, and asthma attacks.
  • Laserjet/inkjet printers: Using laser jet, ink jet, printers and photocopiers  that give off Benzene (gaseous) and other petrochemicals when in operation.chemicals
  • Bathing and showering: Aerosol of Chlorine can be inhaled. Increased temperature also reduces the solubility of dissolved gases so they tend to come out of solution and into the air - have you noticed the faint chlorine smell in the shower and also when you fill a sink up with hot water - put your head close to it and smell. A shower can expose one to up to 10 times more chlorine than drinking unfiltered tap water all day. Other chemicals released in shower water can include chloroform, trichloroethylene (TCE) and hydrogen sulfide.
  • Airplane cabin air: According to the USEPA, the airbourne concentrations of toxic chemicals are 2-5 times higher inside American homes than in the outside air. Cabin air in commerical airliners is drawn in through the engines. This air goes to the front of the plane for the cockpit and circulates backwards meaning the passengers
    at the rear receive the most 'rebreathed' air. In isolated incidents (e.g. 150 incidents in 2001-2007 in the UK), an engine oil leak results in burnt and gaseous oil particles circulating in the cabin air, including high levels of TCP (an organophosphate neurotoxin) and Carbon Monoxide. Low levels are detected in pilots even who have not been exposed to severe incidences. Effect of poisoning crew and passengers. The effects do not necessarily wear off with time. It is commonly referred to as Aerotoxic syndrome
  • Firework displays etc.

                                       By Touch: Via Skin

  • Treated leather upholstry
  • Using Household Cleaning products
  • Using Deodorants with Aluminum Zirconium
  • Using after shave, cosmetics, face creams, moisturiser, make up, eau de toilette, skin creams, shampoos, hair dyes etc. with toxic or carcinogenic chemical compounds such as cosmetic phthalates or plasticizers that go into many other cosmetic products
  • Getting tattoos with mercury in the ink
  • Being around mercuric Sulphate, Mercuric Oxide, Hydrogen Sulphide, Certain Petroleum and Petrochemical/Synthetic Chemical Derivatives and Plastics.
  • Contact with wood lacquers and treatment compounds e.g. wood treatment compounds like Pentachlorophenol (PCP) which is now banned but still persistent in the environment
  • Clothing  may contain formaldehyde: Clothing made of rayon, blended cotton, corduroy, wrinkle-resistant 100% cotton, and any synthetic blended polymer are likely to have been treated with formaldehyde resins, which is a “probable carcinogen
  • Washing clothes with chemical detergents or using paints, chemical cleaners, pesticides and herbicides without protection
  • Teeth coatings, metals retainers, implants, amalgam fillings are also considered as toxic.
  • Toothpaste brushing with Fluorocitic acid toothpastes
  • By Bathing and Showering, toxins  from water are absorbed through the skin, whilst bathing, e.g. hot showers - hot water opens up pores and removes skin's oils (defensive barrier), toxins can be more readily absorbed ( chlorine ). The surface area of the skin exposed to hot water, and the volumes of water, in the shower are very great, and a shower can expose one to up to 10 times more chlorine than drinking unfiltered tap water all day. Other chemicals released in shower water can include chloroform, trichloroethylene (TCE) and hydrogen sulfide

                            By Eat /Drink or Injecting drugs

By Food 

Your food has more toxins than you may think. The biggest culprit for toxic exposure is processed foods, which are full of chemicals and additives that can create symptoms ranging from cravings and weight gain to poor digestive health and food allergies.

But it’s not just packaged food to avoid. Conventional produce is also full of pesticides. In fact, over one billion pounds of pesticides are used on food in the US alone. These pesticides have been linked to symptoms ranging from muscle cramps and heart rate changes to irritability to emotional instability. Ninety percent of households in the United States use some form of pesticide, a broad term that encompasses a variety of chemical formulas that kill everything from tiny microorganisms up to rodents.

In general, it happens when we consume:

  • Rogue fatty acids, e.g. transfats from baked goods and fried food
  • Pesticides (organic component)
  • Herbicides (organic component)
  • Preservatives
  • Artificial Colorings
  • Artificial Stabilizers
  • Artificial Thickeners, e.g. MSG

We letting toxins in when:

  • Eat foods with additives and artificial preservatives, Artificial Colorings, Artificial Stabilizers, Artifictial Thickeners. MSG , Mono sodium Glutamate MSG, Glutamate, Mono potassium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Protein Glutamate Acid, Sodium Caseinate, Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten, Gelatin, Natrium Glutamate, Calcium Caseinate, Sodium Nitrite in processed meats and a host of other names given for same chemicals.
  • Eat foods with additives and artificial preservatives, Artificial Colorings,  Artificial Stabilizers, Artifictial Thickeners.  MSG , Mono sodium  Glutamate MSG, Glutamate, Mono potassium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Protein Glutamate Acid, Sodium Caseinate, Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten, Gelatin, Natrium Glutamate, Calcium Caseinate, Sodium Nitrite in processed meats and a host of other names given for same chemicals.
  • Eat or drink chemical sweeteners found in sweetened breakfast cereals, candy, and granola bars, crackers, cookies, false juice drinks. and soda pops and Diet Sugar free products sweetened with chemical sweeteners such as aspartame, "Nutrasweet", "Equal" and "Spoonful" and other sweetened with chemicals such as   Aspartame found in diet pop and other.
  • Eat processed foods, packaged foods, junk food,  TV dinners, snack dips.
  • Eat refined carbohydrates, gluten containing foods from wheat that was sprayed with roundup prior harvesting.  All grains test as being laced with herbicides. Refined grains, white flour, pastries, donuts.
  • Eat processed dairy products and what is made with pasteurized milk.toxic-food-ingredients
  • Eat processed meats with nitrites over 200 ppm; cured meats, bacon, and nitrites also in cheese products and processed meats such as sausages.
  • Eat saturated fats, Hydrogenated oils,  toxic animal fat. frozen fried foods, and any other refined frozen foods.
  • Eat food heated in plastic containers, baked in aluminum foil or in overheated teflon frying pans
  • Eat overheated carbohydrate foods (such as french fries and potato chips) when animal carcinogen acrylamide was generated.
  • Eat lots of BBQ foods, fried foods, Red meats
  • Eat fish from high mercury rivers or lakes or farm raised fish.
  • Eat Farm-raised salmon  High in PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls)
  • Eat Commercial animal fats – High in dioxins
  • Re-use clear plastic water bottles, drink or eat from tin cans with coatings or lead soldering
  • Using baby bottles and and BPA -the plastics are made with a chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA). BPA has a structure very similar to estrogen and for that reason is referred to as a "hormone disruptor.

Drinking Water and Beverages

Do you know the source of your water? These days, knowing where your water comes from is of the utmost importance. Your body is between 70 – 90% water and the water you drink is critical to hydrating your body at the cellular level.

Tap water is teeming with toxins. The Environmental Working Group found over 140 contaminants in tap water. In addition, over the past few years, studies have shown that pharmaceuticals, like prescription and over the counter drugs, are being found in tap water.

Water quality experts and environmental advocates are increasingly concerned about another kind of water pollution: chemicals from prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications that get into lakes, rivers, and streams. Water also gets contaminated by perfume, cologne, skin lotions, and sunscreens that wash off people’s skin. Some of the most common drugs found in water are: antibiotics, anti-depressants, birth control pills, seizure medication, cancer treatments, pain killers, tranquilizers and cholesterol-lowering compounds.

Another problem with drinking water – living in a building having old lead pipes leading from water main to the house, and mold. Toxins found in tap water, well water, mineral water. e.g. contaminated ground water with cadmium; old lead pipes leading from water main to the house home owner’s responsibility.

Tap water also contains high in disinfection byproducts (DBPs), chloroform, and fluorideWe get them through petroleum-based toxins leaching into water through plastic containers and re-used plastic water bottles etc.

Injecting or Using Special Medical Drugs

  • Taking medicines, i.e. over usage of synthetic prescription pharmaceuticals and over the counter remedies. For instant antibiotics – ingested, through gratuitous prescription to patients by GPs when diagnosis is uncertain.medical-drugs
  • Taking medicines, i.e. over usage of synthetic prescription  pharmaceuticals and over the counter remedies. For instant antibiotics – ingested, through gratuitous prescription to patients by GPs when diagnosis is uncertain.
  • Using legal drugs which also include impurities, fillers and toxins;  anti-depressants, antibiotics, amphetamines or illegal drugs  such as Ecstasy, LSD, heroin, marijuana/hashish smoking, cocaine, Alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, nicotine, etc.(organic and inorganic carcinogens and heavy metals.)
  • Vaccinations – including Flu Jabs – contain a mercury-based preservative called Thimerosal , which contains ethyl-mercury and many more toxins.
  • Taking artificial synthetic vitamins (1st & 2nd generation supplements) or minerals.
  • Amalgam fillings - may be prone to leaking mercury. Contain up to 75% pure mercury! And we are happy to have these inserted into our mouths in a damp environment 24/7, swallowing any saliva that has come into contact with them.

Other sources:

From Low Life toxic bacteria and viruses that are found the air, water and food.


Lyme, Bartonella,  Babesia, Borrelia Miyomotoi, Brucella, Borrelia Recurrentis, some Candida fungi, Sporotrix Schenckii, Coccidoidomycisis, Histaplasmosis  are all produce non-flushable neurotoxins (see toxins’ types). Bacteria, spirochetes, protozoa’s, mycoplasmas,  viruses, Candida and other fungi, parasites, tape worms, flukes, and mold spores from our environment produce neurotoxins 24 hours a day.

Cleansing helps to reduce the toxic overload in your body. It is all about cleaning garbage and ‘sludge’ from the body and giving your body a chance to work for you like it is designed. Sludge could be actually killing you.

If you’re not cleansing your body regularly, you could be ‘recycling’ toxic blood through your system over and over again.

To start on the road to health, you must detoxify from poisons, toxins, pollutants, etc.  If you have not done so already you can check a couple of the best programs I used and am happy to recommend.

If you have a health problem of any kind, check this out, do yourself the biggest favor of your life and get yourself on a cleansing and detoxing program today.
