Little Things Matter:  Purity Counts

images-5  It has become clear that low-level exposures to environmental toxins can result in substantial disease and disability.1 Every day we are exposed to toxic compounds — from the air we breathe, water we drink, food we eat, medications we may take, and yes, even supplementation. Some toxins, such as lead, are naturally occurring elements and may be unavoidable; however, it is the accumulated effect of all these sources that we come in contact with that may become a risk to our health. “Body Burden” is a term that refers to the total accumulation of toxins in your body. In the Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals, the CDC reported that the average person in the United States has at least 212 chemicals in their blood and urine.2

When we purchase from responsible businesses, we need to do our part by promoting those who care and are  responsible to society. Some types of companies are not regulated by Prop 65, however it is a place to start. To assist in your choices, the State of California mandates that any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures products that may be sold in or brought into California is subject to Proposition 65.  Prop 65 requires that products be labeled with a warning when daily exposure is higher than 0.5µ. This is 1,000 times more sensitive than the FDA compliance. For more information about Prop 65 and for a list of elements listed under Proposition 65 visit the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s website.

Why does this matter? It matters because toxins are everywhere, and if our body’s defense system is compromised it may not be enough to support the load. Toxins especially have an impact on the developing brain of our children. Just watch this video:

The choice in products comes from a commitment that each product is as pure as possible, will do the job it is designed to do, and will do no harm.

When taking supplements, eating food, drinking water or ingesting anything, for long term health let it be as pure as possible with with the quality nutrients that nature intended.

EMF Radiation is also a huge area of major concern.  You cannot see it, taste it, or feel it but it is there and extremely toxic to you and yours.  Look soon under products as I am adding a section further educating on EMF and what you can do to protect yourselves from this type of toxicity.
