I want to illustrate to you the amount of toxins that bombard us daily. For this example, we'll say that your body can effectively process and expel 1 million toxins in 24 hours. Any more than that and your body's overloaded.
The problem is we take in far more than that on a daily basis. In an average lifestyle, the following toxins may enter your body daily, that's every 24 hours.
Toxins from Air: 200,000
Toxins from Water: 150,000
Toxins from Food: 325,000
Toxins from Beverages: 160,000
Toxins from Prescription Drugs: 180,000
Toxins from Microbes (Parasites): 525,000
Toxins from Physical & Emotional Stress: 200,000
Toxins from Heavy Metals: 130,000
Toxins from Radiation (Causes Cell Damage & Death): 230,000
Total: 2,100,000 toxins every 24 hours - more than twice what I've proposed as a maximum tolerance!So basically, your 1 million-toxins-daily body is being overworked in an effort to expel these 2.1 million toxins. Many of the toxins build up in your body and wreck havoc until they are removed. The energy it takes to make this effort is often unsuccessful. Even more important, your body pulls resources from elsewhere to combat these toxins. And this constant drain of your body's valuable resources leaves you weakened and vulnerable to the diseases the toxins can generate, because the job of expelling these toxins simply cannot get done.
Now can you see what's happening inside your body every day?You begin to get the picture. To further illustrate the point: one packet of synthetic sugar can contain more than ten thousand toxic molecules in its ingredients! These toxins bombard your intestinal lining daily. And if you don't eliminate them, they can pass through the intestinal walls into your bloodstream where they begin the disease development process.
Green living is a matter of eating a healthy organic diet and having a toxin free environment. When you consider how long you could live, don't you want to have your best health? I know I do.
One thing more I want to share with you: I used one million toxins in my example to give a simple calculation. Really, that number is very low. Toxins are everywhere and they're not just going to go away. But there are things that you can do to improve your lifestyle
