"At least 15 trillion pounds of chemicals are manufactured or imported in the US every year, and, as a result, more than 400 chemical contaminants have been found in human fat."
Fat soluble toxins, like chlorinated pesticides, are not easily excreted from the body. In fact they are stored in the adipose tissue (fat). When a person looses weight the "wrong" way - without properly detoxifying their system - they are actually exposing themselves to highly toxic compounds. This is why a lot of people that try to loose weight give up, because loosing weight makes them feel like crap. What they are feeling is right. When fat is lost, these toxins recirculate throughout the blood stream making your body more toxic than ever before. A study was performed to find out how much toxic fat soluble pesticides were in the system after a 12 pound weight loss - toxins increased by 24 percent!! remember these fat soluble toxins are not excreted, they reciculate until they go back into storage - in your adipose tissue.
You are the only one who can determine what goes into your system. Choosing organic versus non-organic (highly toxic pesticides) will not only help you gain the proper nutrients to stay healthy, but it will prevent your body from becoming overly toxic.
Leading Sources of Chlorinated Pesticides
* nonorganic beef
* nonorganic dairy products
* farm raised fish (salmon and catfish)
* nonorganic butter
Dirty Dozen (highest in pesticides)
Besides decreasing your exposure to pesticides, there are other chemical components in your environment, like your home, that you need to be aware of. Stay tuned to find out more.
