Marketed by some as completely harmless relative to regular tobacco smoking, electronic cigarettes have taken on global popularity. But new research from PLoS One indicates these devices generate aerosols that contain higher levels of toxic metal nanoparticles than conventional tobacco smoke.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to deny the fact that heavy metal exposure has a direct impact on the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders.
A recent study finds the CDC may have covered up the clear and present danger associated with mercury in vaccines.
Ever since humans discovered fire, our activities have been releasing a "dog's breakfast" of unnatural chemistry. The list has grown to well over 75,000 free elements, compounds and pharmaceuticals. Many of these are acidic, electron-hungry oxidants and free radical generators.
New research is revealing something remarkable about why the body sweats. Beyond its obvious role in regulating body temperature, sweating has been found to facilitate the bodily elimination of accumulated heavy metals and petrochemicals, indicating that if we want to be healthy we should put regular effort into doing more sweating.
Pollution is turning the earth and earthlings prematurely gray. What can you do about it with homeopathic medicines?
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick. So, what are some simple, effective ways we rid our body of its daily toxic burden?
We normally don't think much about it, but sulfur is a hugely important nutrient for the body, and when we lack this critical substance, we may be paying for it with the health of our hearts.
Aluminum toxicity, a characteristically manmade problem, is now impossible to avoid, and has become a postmodern human rite of passage. Not only are we being exposed, daily, through environmental pollution in our water, soil and air, but many of our regulatory agencies consider it perfectly safe to intentionally consume or inject the stuff directly into our bodies.
Your body has a natural, powerful, built-in system for detoxification that doesn't require trendy juice cleanses or expensive protocols. All you have to do is sweat!
Candida (Yeast) is a late sign of impaired gut health.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
Detoxification is a nebulous term encompassing a host of therapeutic practices. Cell suffocating metals and organic toxins source oxidative stress/inflammation and have been implicated in everything from cancers and heart disease to Alzheimer's and depression.
