Toxicity is killing us

The old saying “What you don’t know wont hurt you” couldn’t be further from the truth. In actual fact “What you don’t know, may be killing you”!  

Reduce toxins in your personal environment.

The air we breathe, the water we drink and bathe in, the products we build our houses with, and the personal care products we bathe & lather in are highly laden with toxic substances!

A recent study was conducted at Johns Hopkins University measuring peoples “Total Body Burden” (that’s the amount of chemicals in our bodies that don’t belong there) we accumulate these chemicals from our environment, from the food we eat, and even from the thoughts we have.

10 healthy subjects were tested and on average, 91 chemical residues were found.
Interestingly enough, some of these chemicals have been banned since the 1960s, but because fat soluble chemicals are stored in our fat, that’s generally where they stay.
Each of these chemicals are not going to kill us but the over accumulation of these toxins/chemicals will eventually cause big health problems in our bodies.

Did you know, most personal care products are toxic!

Two of the most common dangerous chemicals, approved by the FDA in the personal care products we use daily are:
*SODIUM LAUREL SULPHATE (SLS) and also goes by 90 other names, and
I have heard it said, dont apply anything to your skin that you wouldnt put in your mouth! Such wisdom!

All aspects of body care are important as the skin tends to soak up anything you apply to it. This can also be true for the scalp. Many people may be concerned with what they put into their bodies through the food and drinks they consume, but don't consider the skin as an absorbing medium. Aside from the health consequences, there's also, appearance considerations as well. Let's face it, healthy skin and hair will show up as beautiful skin and hair. This is why it is important to choose a shampoo and conditioner that will not only be safe to use in the long run, but will also give you attractive results.

Most shampoos sold in conventional stores are filled with toxic synthetic chemicals and fragrances. These ingredients are cheap for the companies who manufacture the products, but are dangerous to the person who uses them. What many people don't realize is that most shampoos and conditioners sold in health food stores and natural hair salons also contain these same toxic ingredients, they may contain fewer of these ingredients, but these products are far from safe either.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and its other(90) common derivatives, is an industrial strength, toxic chemical and is known to cause hair to thin out. With long term use, it may actually lead to baldness. The funny thing is because of the pervasive advertising atmosphere in this country, and an effective marketing strategy that seeks to make people emotionally attached to a particular brand, people will continue to use the same shampoo long after they start balding. This makes absolutely no sense to the conscientious individual but it's what people are conditioned to do.

With advertising that's been fine tuned to affect the purchasing choice of the typical consumer, there is little incentive for many shampoo companies to include natural, healthier ingredients. But people are becoming much more conscious of the products they buy. And this has lead to a growing industry of healthy, natural plant- and mineral-based hair products.

SLS is commonly found in Body wash, dishwashing liquid and your baby’s bubblebath. It is used so,because of its affective lathering abilities.
You may find you have been unknowingly bombarding your system with it several times a day!

Conditioners contain another known carcinogen called Propylene Glycol, as this is a humectant- a moisture retaining chemical. (Is also commonly found in dog biscuits, and biscuits & cakes- such as
Tim Tams) I think a great rule of thumb should be dont put it near your skin if you wouldn't put it near your mouth!

These are just two of the thousands of dangerous substances in our everyday household products. There are hundreds more!

These two products alone are commonly used in shampoos, toothpaste, cleansers, toners, bubble bath, and bath gels, and are a real threat to the long term health of our family!
Other dangerous chemicals to avoid:
Mineral oil
Paraffin -These products coat the skin like plastic, clogging the  pores, & create a build up of toxins
Parabens -Studies indicate their connection with cancer
Toulene -Made from petroleum or  coal tar, dangerous & toxic,yet found in most synthetic fragrances.

Dr Mercola says “You’d be much better off switching to skin care products made of plant names you recognise, can pronounce and could even eat if you had to.”   

If you are hearing this for the very first time or may have heard before but it doesn’t really bother you, I would encourage you to do a little research for yourself, as these chemicals are proven carcinogens (cancer causing).

There are many companies today promoting ‘safe’ personal items and cosmetics. Safe and Neways products are among my favourites.
Health Hint: The following two websites are great to subscribe to, for regular health newsletters, along the lines of these subjects mentioned.

Vaccinations are toxic!
They are one of the most controversial issues in modern medicine. Although the vast majority of the conventional medical community, believe that vaccinations are an example of preventative medicine, there is a growing community, that strongly disagrees.
If you are hearing this for the first time, please don’t just take my word for it, but do the research. There is conclusive evidence that vaccines are the #1 cause of autism!

Vaccines suppress the immune system, leaving you vulnerable.

Vaccines can contain many toxic substances including but not limited to: mercury, ethylene glycol (antifreeze), phenol (a disinfectant dye), benzethonium chloride (a disinfectant), formaldehyde (a preservative and disinfectant), and aluminum (another known neuro-toxin). Did you know that?

Never forget, vaccine manufacturers want to sell more vaccines, because that is how they make their money. Unfortunately, there is a revolving door between the policy-makers who determine the vaccine schedule and the pharmaceutical companies who make the vaccines. A recent Wall Street Journal article reported that Merck stands to generate as much as $2 billion in revenues per year from their new Gardasil vaccine for girls targeting cervical cancer.


Excerpts from Dr. Dan Chesnut’s new book, LYING WITH AUTHORITY.( A medical doctor for 44yrs)


“It is estimated that a flu vaccine injection yearly for five years running increases the chance for Alzheimer’s by at least 1000%. Flu vaccine can also cause anxiety and depression preceded by brain inflammation especially in the elderly who have high suicide rates.

“In spite of these known risks with vaccines, there is an all out campaign by public health officials and doctors to vaccinate elderly people, not only with the flu vaccine, but with a growing number of new vaccines. Many people report that flu shots give them the flu. In fact, people die from flu vaccine. When the elderly die after getting a flu shot, especially if months later, it is rarely blamed on the flu vaccine. Deaths and disability from flu vaccine far exceed deaths from the flu. . .

“Flu vaccines are only effective in 30% to 40% of people who take them and even that is questionable. There has never been strong evidence of fewer hospitalizations or decreased death rate from taking flu vaccines. This is another example of fact distortion by authority in the effort to sell more flu vaccine.

Flu vaccine during pregnancy can dramatically increase the risk for autism and schizophrenia. Most flu vaccines contain mercury (thimerosal) and aluminum and could contain viral fragments. It could cause multiple side effects in the brain including paralysis, hearing loss, vertigo and brain irritability.

“Flu vaccine over-stimulates the immune system, especially the brain. In fact, it can suppress immunity for weeks after receiving the vaccine. . . In people who die from flu vaccine, and there certainly are a number every year, the actual cause of death has often been reported as due to some other type of disease, but in reality, their immune systems have been depressed, allowing other diseases to become more deadly.


“If children receive flu vaccine, it can be even more deadly because children are more sensitive to mercury and to the effects of depressed immunity. Flu vaccine in children causes an increased incidence in asthma by 200%. There has caused sudden memory loss in children and adults immediately after receiving flu vaccine. . .

“Very young babies are at extremely high risk because their brains are immature; blood brain barriers are ‘leaky’ and more sensitive to toxins. In the first two years of life, infants may receive 22 vaccines with as many as nine shots in one office visit. Many doctors feel this is criminal. . .

“Nasal flu vaccines are even worse because they introduce a live virus into the nasal mucous membranes only a few inches from the brain where viruses can potentially travel upward via the olfactory (smell) nerves.

Drugs/ Medicine are toxic!
Medication will never reverse health conditions; they only alleviate or alter the symptoms.

“If your body is weak (sick, diseased), there is not the slightest excuse for remaining so, the health and strength of a high degree is the natural heritage of man and woman. Are you depending on drugs? Drugs, drugs! Great heavens, will this crime of the century never end? Drugs never did, and never will cure disease. The body cures itself if it can secure an opportunity, but with the poisonous drugs at hand, and with their authorities standing at your side, I know its difficult to refuse. You must be free from the drug delusion mentally before you can ever be physically” Bernarr Macfaddens, author of Fasting, hydrotherapy and exercise.

Health Hint: From cancer, to heart disease fasting needs to be the first line of defence against disease. Ignoring detoxification and the nutritional needs of the immune system, is to ignore the body’s natural healing process.

Microwaving food is a toxic hazard!
There have been many cautions over the years as to whether our microwave ovens are really safe!
While I understand there is no nutritional benefit of your food after it has been heated in a microwave ( as they say 97% of nutrients destroyed -and it is often reheated more than once), I have often wondered if it could be slowly poisoning us as well?

In 1991 a lawsuit involving a woman who had hip surgery, died because the blood used in her blood transfusion was warmed in a microwave! Blood is routinely warmed before transfusions, but not in a microwave. The microwave, as it does, altered the blood and this resulted in the death of the woman!
This report was enough for me to cease using my microwave, as, if it altered human living blood, I’m sure that our live food upon entering the oven would not return the same!

Well it is interesting to find out Microwave ovens were created by the Nazis! To read entire article ‘The curse of convenience’-

Health Hint: What to do with my microwave?
I know many people today who only use their microwaves to sterilize their kitchen dishcloths!

Fluoride is toxic!                                                           
There are 2 types of Fluoride.
Calcium fluoride is found in nature, Sodium  Fluoride is a toxic waste bi-product.
Read how this poison is wreeking havoc on our bodies here
                                                     The old saying rings in my ears “If in doubt, don’t!”  We’re paying a high price for convenience. 
                                                                         It certainly can’t be worth our health, and the health of our precious children
