Let’s Talk Toxins and How They Enter Our Body (Part 2 – Final)

We hope you all out there in the Universe are not depressed after reading Part 1, because this will be a somewhat happy ending?  We are doing these posts because we as consumers rarely hear any talk about “Food Toxins” and we only know because of the class we took at Stanford.  We feel the need to report this to all of you so we can clear it out of our mind to make room for other information. Hopefully the “mainstream” media will eventually start investigating toxins and make the “we could care less” manufacturers accountable for the production of toxins in their products.

Please note the picture in the upper left of this post.  “Plastics by Number” and the lower portion shows shat each number resides in like #5 in furniture, toys, etc.

Organophosphate Pesticides

Designed to attach nervous systems of insects – Humans have a similar system
Some banned in US but still persists in environment – Almost everyone will test positive for exposure
How to avoid?
–          Buy organic, seasonal, local, domestic produce

–          Wash fruits and vegetables with distilled water or mild soap (Got any distilled water around?)

–          Choose organic, low fat / no fat animal products

–          Make sure freshwater fish is not contaminated

–          Cook meat so fat melts away

PBDE Fire Retardants (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers)

·        How to avoid

–          Vacuum with HEPA filter to minimize toxic house dust

–          Don’t reupholster foam furniture

–          Don’t buy textiles/clothing treated with flame retardants

–          Cover mattress with allergen barrier

–          Replace old carpet and pad

–          Choose lean/low fat animal products

PFC’s (Perfluorinated chemicals) and Glyphosate (Roundup)

–          Found in non-stick, stain-resistant, water-resistant products >> ends up in water supply

–          Widespread and some forms (PFOA) never biodegrade

–          Avoid cosmetics with fluoro-, perfluroro-, or PTFE.  Also found in dental floss (Not the floss dance)

–          Roundup is the most widely used broad-spectrum herbicide in the U.S.

–          Monsanto produces genetically modified seeds for Roundup.

–          Linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, GI and neurocognitive problems, etc.  (Roundup is banned in many countries)

Detoxification – The LIVER (Our main Organ) (Stand-up and cheer for this organ)

–          Main organ in detoxification of toxins, hormones, medications, etc.

–          Fat soluble toxins generally have to be converted to a water soluble compound by the Liver

The Microbiome

·        The collective detoxification activity of the Microbiome probably exceed the Liver

·        So keep your microbiome Happy:

–          Fiber

–          Prebiotics

–          Probiotics

–          Avoid antibiotics

–          Eat good, sleep good, exercise, and don’t stress (Meditate)

Patterns of Toxicity:  Neuropsychiatric

Difficulty with memory, concentration, learning, irritability, depression, anxiety, migraines, headaches, tremor, autonomic dysfunction, etc

 Other patterns of Toxicity:  Immune dysfunction, Mitochondrial, Metabolic, Endocrine Disruption, Cancer, and Genetic Disorders

There are so many issues with these and because we don’t wish to make a book out of this post, please look up each as needed.

How to enhance Detox

Always start with a food first approach
–          Your weight in pounds divides 2 = ounces of water daily

Eat lots of phytonutrients (colorful vegtables)
Fiber
Eat high-quality protein (mostly plant based)
Sweat out toxins via exercise or sauna (or writing posts that have medical terms)
Sleep 8 – 9 hours
Once establish a firm foundation in nutrition, may pursue detox supplements under medical supervision
Safe Cell Phone Use

Our comment – this subject comes up often and because it does that means that nobody is doing anything about it.  Why?  Big money!  How about when a person gets sick let them sue the manufacturer of the cell phone they used most.  Remember when cancer victims that smoked sued the tobacco industry and won?  The same should apply with all toxins and cell –phones.

Maintain as much distance from your phone as possible.
Keep phone fully charged and use when you have a strong signal
Don’t let kids play with devices
Put router on timer so it’s off at night
Use wired headset (We have one on now) or speaker
Texting emits less radiation than calls.
Our comment – The list above will probably be follow by 0.000000000000000001 % of the readers of this post. (Maybe less)

That’s it folks.  Check out http://www.EWG.org for sources.  We also use meditation for “detoxing” and cleaning out the “crap” in our body.  In fact we did a four hour meditation “detox” just yesterday and we included regeneration of damaged cells.

We said in our last post that our phone “died” last weekend probably from radiating poisoning because it was really old.  Best thing to happen to us we found after some meditation.  We have been working on removing past events (See prior posts) and the phone contained quite a bit of the past and we probably would not have thought about getting rid of the phone so the Universe did it for us.  We are grateful once again.  We now were confronted by how much we been putting off like heavy duty deep meditations for our growth and writing posts more often than once a week.  We have decided that we need a secretary and we are now interviewing.  Position requires someone who can be depended on, has a car, will edit our posts, will keep track of all appointments, intuitive woman (Yes women because they are way more intuitive than men and 90% of our decisions are based in intuition), independent, have a great sense of humor, knows how to dimensional and astral travel (This should narrow it down), and be a kind person.

We have nothing else to add at this time except to thank everyone who stopped by to read this post and the other part.  We will now go on a “post” vacation for a few weeks to not post medical stories or any post where we don’t know how to pronounce 50% of the words in the post.  We are starting another class in August – “Chronic Tiredness”…a challenge to stay awake 🙂

Let’s Talk Toxins and How They Enter Our Body (Part 1)

 If you have been living in a cave in the mountains of Siberia for the last 50 years then you need to know that toxins in the air are among the worst cause of climate change, but we are not going there in this post even though one of the most toxic products for the environment and the body is shared and that is PLASTIC.  We are going to discuss how toxins enter the body, what creates toxins, and what can toxins cause in our health systems.  Please note that the company 4 Seasons Plastic removal  has currently 300 employees all around the world constantly cleaning up plastics polluting beaches and lands all around the world.  Please support 4 Seasons by going to their web site.

What is a toxin?

A compound that has an adverse effect on physiology

– Man Made ; BPA sed in manufacturing of plastics -> estrogenic effect

– Natural ; Botulinum toxin made by bacteria -> Botulism

How do Toxins Enter the Body?

Direct contact through skin and mucous membrane.
Ingestion through the gastrointestinal tract.
Inhales from the air.
Who is at greatest risk?

Developing babies
Pregnant women (And men or other, depending on what planet you live on)
Children
Women (and men) of childbearing (<did not know this was one word) age
Industrial workers
Obese individuals
People with chronic medical conditions
Endocrine Disruption and its effects:

Endocrine Disruption – Toxins can interrupt hormone function in humans.

Effects:

Miscarriage and abnormal fetal development
Infertility in men and women
Development problems
Precocious puberty
Thyroid dysfunction
Autoimmunity
Weight changes (Obesogens)
Cardiovascular disease and hypertension
Cancer

 

Mercury (Not the car)

Released into the air/oceans by burning coal or incinerating waste
Leaches from amalgam fillings into the body ( http://www.IAOT.org  to find a dentist for safe removal)
High fructose corn syrup contains mercury
Avoid mercury thermometers and fluorescent light bulbs
Invest in HEPA filter to remove mercury from air in your home

 

Lead (Can be tested for)

Found in drinking water, soil, air, etc.
Get rid of old paint on walls (Pre-1978)
Avoid older/imported toys, furniture, ceramics
Treat tap water to remove lead (Filter)
Plant5-based diets absorb less lead (and other toxins)

 

Arsenic

Found in Food, water, treated wood, chicken meat
Use water filter that removes Arsenic
Choose organically grown chicken (Arsenic is used as growth enhancer)
Remove old paint over treated wood

 

Cadmium

Found in cigarette smoke, soil, Ni-Cadmium batteries, paint, ceramics (Especially glazing), jewelry making
Certain foods may be high in Cadmium – Spinach, lettuce, potatoes, grains, soybeans, peanuts, sunflower seeds
Variety is important so you don’t get a big dose of one toxin
Stop Smoking (you can do it), avoid second and third hand smoke.

 

BPA (Bisphenol A)

Used in manufacturing of plastics
Imitates estrogen
Avoid canned foods (found in lining)
Avoid plastics (#7 has BPA)
-choose glass, stainless steels or porcelain
-No plastic in the dishwasher or microwave
-Avoid health, beauty, food products in plastic containers
Great website for alternatives  http://www.LifeWithoutPlastic.com
Paper receipts (Cashiers highly exposed < tough to eliminate)
BPA-free products often contain toxic BPS

 

Dioxin (found in)

PVC production, industrial bleaching (White paper), waste incineration, high fat animal products, and breast milk
Organic produce does not reduce dioxin exposure.  Wash fruits and vegetables before eating (Now see why water filter is needed)
Avoid smoke, vapors, incinerators, soil in hazardous waste areas, and fresh water fish like catfish, trout, and carp
Other places found – cling wrap, Tupperware, shower curtains, photo albums, dish racks, notebooks, binders, cell phones (Yes folks cell phones), table cloths, computer keyboards (We are typing with rubber gloves on), credit cards (Could be toxic in more ways than one), fake xmas trees, mouse pads, paper clips, toys, balls, kids swimming pools, labels/stickers. Appliance housing (TV , video), imitation leather furniture, shutters (not camera), rain gear, blister packs (No clue what this is), plastic bags, watch bands

 

PCB (Polychlorinated biphenyl) Atrazine, and Phthalates

PBC found in building materials, electrical products, caulking, paint, glues, plastics, fluorescent lighting, banned in 1979 but persists in soil, air, water
PCB avoid by don’t eat meat dairy, fish (from polluted areas), choose organic meat, poultry, fish, low-fat/non-fat organic dairy products

Atrazine found in herbicide used in corn crops, and ends up in drinking water
Avoid Atrazine – avoid fields where atrazine has been sprayed (How would you know?), buy organic, use water filter (Popular device)
Phthalates are found in making plastic flexible, lubricant in cosmetics, PVC products (Plastic #3), toothbrushes, perfume, laundry detergents, anything labeled “fragrance”, insecticides, insect repellent, steering wheels, the “new car smell”, carpeting, vinyl flooring, coating on wires, shower curtains, plastic toys, IV bags and tubing

 

We are at the end of part 1 and when we were in the class at this point we were thinking how overwhelming all of this is. It seemed like there is nothing safe and we might be wearing rubber (Detox) gloves forever.  We had to force ourselves to stay in the moment because thoughts like calling our doctor to get some depression meds or running down to the weed store (because we can here in CA).  Think about that kid “in the bubble” he was actually in a toxic bubble if it was made out of plastic.  Next time we go in an Uber we will ask if the car has been detoxified.  One of the samples the teacher gave is when we sit on our couch a puff of toxins goes up in the air about four feet and we breath it right in.  Yes folks, we were on the phone calling the weed store and placing an order.  Ut oh!  Wonder if the weed has been sprayed?  Then we though “Wait!  Most of the meds come in plastic bottles!”  Heck with it, sprayed on not sprayed weed is the answer.

We are putting together part 2 and we have canceled our weed order.  Folks it’s all good.  We are reporting on this because the “big guy” companies don’t give a crap (Toxic) about what is going in our bodies.  They care about one thing “The almighty dollar”.  We need to talk about this and start calling our representatives in DC to get change.  Yes we know that the biggest toxic problem is Trump, but he can be removed like a puddle of dog pee-pee on your carpet.  All votes are solutions.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to tell our personal friends that our phone has passed away by choice so it would not continue to expose us to toxins and we are looking for a non toxic solution.  We will phone a friend when we get a new one.  Thanks to all of you who take your precious time to stop by.
