Reduce Your Toxic Exposure
According to the United Nations Environmental Program, the tissue of every human being on Earth has traces of several hundred man-made chemicals. Some of us have already become very sick because of them. Others of us will in the future. Just how toxic are we? An EPA test found 20 different chemicals in the fat cells of people living throughout America. That was in 1982. The same test conducted in 2005 found an average of 200 chemicals—in new born babies! 76 were linked to cancer, 94 to brain toxins and 79 caused brain defects.
Bizarre as it may sound, every one of us has been enrolled—without our permission—in a grotesque global chemical experiment. Our program offers an alternative to sitting back and passively participating in the experiment. The first and most important action you can take is to reduce you exposure to toxins.
The most important place to reduce your toxic exposure is where you spend the most time, in your home. Use this check-list to identify what you are already doing to decrease toxic exposures at home and to plan new steps to further reduce your exposure.
