From generation to generation we go.
We've seen the photos of our grandparents, our folks when they were young [hard to visualize my dad in 2nd grade], and we've heard the great flood of 19whatever.
What we didn't hear is silently bioaccumulating in all of us....from the dawn of our first generation to the present one.
From maternal blood.
The latest analysis of newborn babies shows they are born with an average of 200+ chemicals found in their umbilical cord blood.
Not a great start.
The good news is that many, if not all, can be removed by trained environmental medicine docs.
An informative report by the Environmental Working Group is entitled, Body Burden: The Pollution in Newborns.
I highly recommend you at least scan it.
Take a moment. Learn and understand where we are currently in the world.
One step further is the report on adults: Body Burden: The Pollution in People.
This report was the initator to get the Center for Disease Control [CDC] to do "the most extensive assessment ever made of the exposure of the U.S. population to chemicals in our environment."
The CDC didn't test for as many chemical compounds as the EWG but they tested a larger population. Money is an issue folks. It's expensive to run these tests.
Take a test. What chemicals are in your body?
If you can donate to the EWG. I do.
I dont intend to scare you or make you paranoid. My intention is to inform you of what is out there that is pretty much hush hush.
It is possible to limit your toxic burden. And it is possible to remove these harmful chemicals from your body. Truely it is. It has been done over and over and....yep...over again by many docs I know.
I plan to specialize in environmental medicine as I am thrilled by the results patients experience after treatment. Improving lifestyle and health is my goal. Removing the cause of illness is a major component of that goal.
Pollution is a major cause of illness.
The first step in removing pollution is understanding where it comes from.
Read, at least scan, the reports.
Oh - and uh - don't eat farmed fish.
