seems to contradict the logic presented to us by the modern medical association:
If we live in an age of wonder drugs, the best surgical techniques in the world
and have the best food supply, then why is the cancer and disease rate still on
is a complex question, but certainly one of the most overlooked, underrated reasons
for today’s escalating disease rate is the presence of toxic substances in our
lives. Toxins (poisons) are making us sick while huge corporations — including
chemical manufacturers — are getting rich. Indeed, many of the same companies
that manufacture chemicals that cause illness are also manufacturing drugs to
treat people from the illness. Mind boggling?
you take into consideration the fact that big business owns and operates most
of the major media — controlling the news we hear and see every day and night
— and megacorporations create the biggest source of pollution, then you’ll realize
why the dangers of their toxic outflow is never brought to our attention.
have to hunt for answers ourselves, finding out, for instance, that we are being
poisoned in vaccinations, by our personal care products (soap, makeup, hair spray,
etc.), the foods we eat (containing pesticides and artificial
ingredients), household products to which we are exposed (paint, lacquers, carpeting,
etc.) and even the vitamins we pop. All of these things are toxic and they all
are taking their toll on our health both personally and globally. It’s a sad fact
of the 21st Century.
TOXIC DAY IN AMERICA
about the average, toxic-laden day of an American...
wake up at and brush your teeth
with fluoride (toxic) toothpaste using chlorinated (toxic) water.
you step into the shower and breathe in chlorine vapors (toxic). You come out
of the shower and put on underarm deodorant with aluminum (toxic) and a host of
other poisonous, cancer-causing chemicals.
you’re female you apply your makeup, which is full of cancerous chemicals.
you’re wearing a brand new shirt, you’re exposing yourself to formaldehyde.
you go down to breakfast and have coffee with DDT (toxin) and many other pesticide
and synthetic (toxic) residues. If it’s decaf, it’s made with hexane (toxic) to
separate the caf from the coff.
that day you head out for lunch and have a diet coke full of toxic artificial
sweeteners and a turkey sandwich with antibiotics and steroids that had been injected
into the animal.
you drive home in your car, you breathe in traffic fumes and dioxin and mercury
from a nearby incinerator.
to put the toxic cherry on top, when you settle into your comfy chair you watch
the evening news telling you that the administration has relaxed laws for polluters
because some deal has been made in Washington
that compromises the health of your family.
you happen to get a cavity from the toxic sugar in your diet and have to see the
dentist, the toxic load continues to pile up. “Dental amalgams, known as silver fillings, are composed
of roughly 50 percent mercury. Studies of people with mercury-containing dental
fillings show a correlation between the number and size of the fillings and the
amount of mercury excreted in their urine. The relationship suggests that the
mercury is derived from mercury vapor released from the fillings. Some evidence
shows that the level of mercury in the brain tissue of fetuses, newborns, and
young children is also directly proportional to the number of surfaces of amalgam
fillings the mother has.” (DISCOVER Vol. 26 No. 03, March 2005, Biology &
it’s a frustrating fact that we are all being poisoned from all directions. We
are not told on the evening news that the Mighty Mississippi is one of the most
polluted waterways in the world. We’re not even told when there’s a major pollution
spill from an industry that threatens our lives! Read the book Evil
Genius in the Garden of Evil
(Shayne) and you’ll find a number of incidences wherein this has happened. The
media even neglects to tell you that the non-stick pan on which your dinner is
being cooked is known to cause cancer. Then they tell you that the cold and flu
is going around again and you can “catch” it from your neighbors and kids so you
better run out and get vaccinated with a toxic injection. Vaccinations are sold
to us beneath the banner of prevention and health care, but they are responsible
for causing horrific side effects.
this: “Throughout the 1990s, a 3-month-old baby might receive as much as 63 micrograms
of mercury in a single visit to a doctor‹roughly 100 times the daily EPA safety
level. By the age of 6 months, properly immunized children were exposed to at
least 188 micrograms of mercury in a series of at least nine injections. Although
the 1999 FDA action minimized such exposure, some infant flu vaccines still contain
12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose‹more than 10 times the daily EPA safety level
for a 20-pound baby (Paul Connett, PhD, Fluoride email newsletter) There is mounting
concern that vaccinations are at the root of childhood diseases such as autism.
NO BUGS, JUST
is the opinion of this writer, not without scientific evidence, that much of what
is termed the common cold these days is merely the effect of toxic exposure, yet
it is blamed on viruses, bacteria and other mysterious germs. Following
the Christmas and New Years’ holidays, for instance, the rate of illness skyrockets.
It is usually blamed on the cold weather, which somehow is supposed to create
“the bug” that becomes an epidemic. But if you think about it, during the holidays
is when we eat all the wrong foods, including these toxic substances: sugar, artificial
ingredients, alcohol, food dyes, and trans fatty acids.
It’s more of a wonder why some people DO NOT get sick than why so many DO.

cause health problems. Sometimes these are acute (sudden onset with a brief duration
of symptoms) and sometimes chronic (a long-lasting illness). Here are some symptoms
of toxic exposure. Notice how many of these are customarily attributed to “mysterious”
causes and germs or genetic factors:

CAN YOU DO?
there are several things you can do to minimize your exposure to toxins as well
as getting them out of your body. The first, of course, is to be aware that toxins
exist and have an effect on your health. Go online to scorecard.org and find out
who’s polluting your neighborhood. Next…

fats, partially hydrogenated fats, decaf coffee (unless organic), NutraSweet,
MSG, refined sugar and junk foods
and eat only organically grown foods

there are a few good sources to read, including Kim Erickson’s Drop Dead Gorgeous,
the Safe Shopper’s Bible, and A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients.
