We all know pollution and toxins are bad for you. But the Environmental Working Group has conducted perhaps the deepest analysis of this issue on the most vulnerable demographic on the planet….the unborn child. Some shocking information about the number of toxins that were found in the umbilical cord blood is a real wake up call for those that want to reduce their toxic exposure.
In this study, 1 sample of blood was taken and tested for hundreds of chemical toxins. Over 287 chemicals were found in the cord blood. When they matched the chemicals these were the results:
134 cancer causing chemicals
151 chemicals causing birth defects
158 neurotoxic chemicals
10 heavy metals
If these toxins ended up in the umbilical cord, no doubt most of them are also circulating in your breasts. For women that want to heal from Breast Cancer or simply want to prevent Breast Cancer, it is so important for you to learn how to reduce your toxic exposure.
Here are a 5 simple steps that you can take to reduce your toxic exposure:
1. Change your toothpaste to a natural one
2. Stop using an antiperspirant and use a natural deodorant
3. Drink clean, purified or spring water
4. Try to eat only organic produce
5. Cook with stainless steel or ceramic pots and not Teflon or non stick pans.
Unfortunately, we do live in a very toxic world. However, by taking these simple steps you can reduce your toxic exposure to ensure a healthier life.
