When I’m approached by clients looking to improve their overall health, weight and energy, I’m repeatedly reminded of the fact that we humans are subjected to some pretty stressful elements on a regular basis. Some of these can be easily recognised and understood, such as junk food and drinks, food chemicals, environmental pollutants etc. Some, however, have not been quite so well publicised, even though they have far-reaching health consequences.
In other articles on the topic of electromagnetic fields (EMF), we have written about the dangers of these fields and how to reduce your exposure to them. Having read other books on the topic, we’re struck by how little the ‘average’ person understands about what is arguably one of the most harmful aspects of modern living.
All commercial household cleaning products have the potential to negatively impact on your health. They contain chemicals which are poisonous if swallowed, leach toxins into the air and are inhaled (affecting the lungs) and – once you touch a surface just cleaned – you’ll absorb them through the skin, forcing the liver to have to metabolise them. In addition, they’re very damaging to the environment.
Toothpaste is used daily and in (sometimes) generous amounts. While fluoridated toothpaste may have some value topically, the fact that much of it is swallowed during use is what poses a danger to your health. This is because the fluoride used in such products is sodium fluoride (a by-product of, primarily, the phosphate fertilizer industry).
As concerned and loving parents, we do our very best to protect our children from any and all potentials dangers. What about those dangers lurking in our home? We’re talking about exposure to synthetic chemicals, plastics, sound-carrying waves, low-level radiation, electro-magnetic pollution and environmental pollution.
