You're not really sick, but yet you know you should feel better than you do. You're tired a lot, you get irritated and stressed easily, you're moody, you'd rather not be around people, and you rarely get a good night's sleep. You just don't feel your old self.
So, what's going on?
They are chemicals that are able to change our fat metabolism and encourage our body to retain fat leading to weight gain and obesity. Chemicals like BPA, MSG, PFOA, Phthalates, DDT, Clozapine, Butylparaben, Dioxins, Fructose, Nicotine, Atrazine, and many more may have toxic effects on the body. Unfortunately, we are often exposed to these chemicals on a daily basis, and they affect us in so many ways.
Begin to read labels on everything from the food you put in your mouth, to the products you put on your body, and the things that you bring in your home. The bottom line is that if you can't pronounce the ingredients, leave it on the shelf.
Exposures to these toxins have been linked to: Thyroid Disease, Infertility, Allergies, Fatigue, Heart Disease,and Cancer. Many childhood diseases like Learning Disabilities, Autism, Developmental & Behavioral Problems, Early Onset Puberty, and Leukemia have also been linked to exposure to environmental toxins.
The best thing you can do is to avoid being exposed in the first place. Only drink filtered water, avoid fragrances (colognes, bath products, scented cleaners, room fresheners, candles, and more), and avoid non-stick cookware & food packaging.
