Toxic exposure is unavoidable and exceeds the body’s natural ability to remove toxic waste at this time. There is no way to escape daily exposure from the toxic halogens, chemicals, fertilizers, defoliates, heavy metals, (GMO) Genetically Modified Foods, insecticides, molds, (PBC’s) Plastics, etc.
The EPA estimates over 70,000 chemical are used commercially for agriculture, building materials and consumer goods. 3,000 chemicals are approved for use in our food directly. Over 10,000 chemicals are used in food processing, preserving and storage.
Over the past 46 years, the use of fertilizers, including nitrogen, phosphate and potash, has increased nearly threefold. In annual surveys conducted since 1994, 42 to 71 percent of food samples have shown detectable amounts of pesticide residue.
From 1999-2004 the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found 219 different chemicals in blood and urine; 75 were never seen before in previous studies.
From, 2007-2008, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) research detected 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns. Of that total, 180 are known to cause cancer in humans and animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development.
Columbia University School of Public Health reports that 95% of cancer is caused by diet and accumulation of toxins. Toxins are bio accumulative and continue to build in the body and set the stage for a new era of sickness, illness and dis-ease. At this time, the soil to raise crops has become depleted in the minerals and nutrients both plants and animals need, including the human species.
Our Indoors are found to be 100 Times MORE Polluted than the Outdoors:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finds our indoor environment to be 2-5 times more toxic and 100 times more polluted than our outdoor environment.
- Dishwasher Detergent: petrochemicals, benzene, phosphates
- Oven Cleaner: lye and ammonia
- Surface Cleaners: petroleum surfactants
- Antibacterial Soap: Triclosan
- 600+ Personal Care Products: Diethanolamine
- (DEA, Propulene Glycol, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are common chemical contaminants found in office and home environments and are a source of odors. VOCs are organic (containing carbon) chemicals that can easily evaporate into the air. Many products found in the indoor environment have the potential to release VOCs.
- Caulks, sealants, and coatings
- Paints, varnishes and/or stains
- Wall coverings
- Cleaning agents
- Vinyl flooring
- Fabric material & furnishings
- Air fresheners and other scented products
These toxins listed are a very, very small list to a huge problem.
The protocols we use in our office are safe, natural, effective means to find out what really is going on inside your body and what needs support and treatment—we use very sophisticated modes of evaluation and treatment; to support the health and well-being for our patients and their families.
Please let’s increase awareness. Share this information with family and friends. There is something that can be done, no matter where you find yourself or a loved one. Call and set an appointment to speak to Dr. Bert to address any concerns you might have and find out more on how the cutting edge work he does in his office can work for you.
