A few things though, have been happening during these decades. Silently, insidiously, going completely unnoticed by all but the government, military, the FDA, the AMA, CDC, the scientific community and those of us not completely intoxicated by the over emphasis on the "appearance" of wealth and fashion.
Lets start with something basic like, food. Many of us are aware that the food industry has gone totally insane with the chemistry of foods. All one has to do is look at the labels on most processed foods and get beyond ingredients like salt, sugar, fat, protein, etc.and then it becomes more like a lesson in chemistry formulas. Preservatives, colors, emulsifiers flavors, scents, etc.. Now, with much of the food supply controlled by MONSANTO, not only do we enjoy tomatoes with the genes of a fish spliced in, we also receive an unhealthy dose of insect repellent. You heard right!
This is not the only company that has defiled our food source, but they are the largest and now control most of the food at least in the United States, and much of the world.This corporation is almost seamlessly meshed with the United States Government agencies, particularly the FDA and EPA. Even Hilary Clinton is employed by Monsanto.
Food is certainly not what it used to be...much of it is harmful to our bodies. But, what about the air that we breath everyday? Well, studies suggest that our atmosphere is becoming more toxic each decade. The list of harmful chemicals in our atmosphere is staggering!
Chemtrails: Which are a source of conspiratorial debate, are another source of potential deadly toxins which if real, are apparently killing plant and animal alike on land, in the air and the oceans. My research leads me to believe that global governments are dumping billions of tons of nano particulate Aluminum, Barium, other harmful elements and compounds in the atmosphere, in an attempt to control and direct the moisture in the air. He who controls the water, controls humanity.
I am not here to convince anyone of my somewhat controversial opinions, but the possibility that this exists, only further complicates our chances for a healthy life. Even more impacting on the infants, aged and ill.
Water: Not only is the water quantity of our world diminishing, the quality of this life giving compound is evermore in question. Our need for things and convenience is the source of our own eventual extinction from this amazing home we call earth. Considering that what goes up must come down, it would be fairly obvious to a third grader that emitting industrial and other waste products into the air, is a REALLY STUPID IDEA!
Our planet is, like our bodies, about 3/4's H2o...WATER. So eventually, the pollution in the air will drop into the water and we will absorb it into our bodies. There is also The pharmaceutical industry's waste which, along with industrial waste is directly injected into our precious life source! One only need look at the increased rates of birth defects and disease to get a better perspective.
Then there is Land pollution. I don't believe I have to explain this as the examples are many and most visible.
If all this is not enough to choke the life out of our bodies, there is the crap we purposefully do to ourselves for recreational reasons...poisons really.
Normally, we associate "detoxing" with persons who have substance abuse challenges...well guess what? Although it may not be self inflicted, we are all going through substance abuse challenges and should TOTALLY begin to understand and practice DAILY DETOXIFICATION!
These days even food labeled as organic is problematic, as the FDA and the big food industry seem to be in bed together and the requirements for organic labeling are slack at best. Unless you grow the food yourself in soil that you have tended and tested or you have food sources that you are completely familiar with, you are at the mercy those companies producing what you eat.
Between what you eat, drink inhale and absorb through your skin, the largest organ of the body, YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY ZERO % CHANCE OF DODGING TOXICITY IN THIS WORLD!
So, the bottom line here is that through Digestive Wellness, exercise and Awareness, we can have bodies that feel better on a daily basis. Don't give up or give in, DETOX!
