Тoxins and pollutants are everywhere around us. Some of them can be avoided more easily, others not. Although detoxification diets, healthy lifestyle and all the efforts to cleanse your body of toxins, the best way to deal with them remains the avoidance of any toxins to penetrate in our body.
So we need to focus on the idea to limit the presence of toxins in our everyday life.
Here are some of the main pollutants and toxins that should be avoided:
1. Heavy metals – the appearance of toxicity can be caused by more than 35 kinds of heavy metals, most commonly these are mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. Heavy metals are the cause of many serious health problems such as neurological and kidney damage. Heavy metals contamination of food occurs primarily through pollution of air, water and soil.
Detoxification can be done in a completely natural way using:
Grapefruit, pineapple, broccoli, lemon, green tea, charcoal, bentonite clay, spirulina bath with epsom salt and zeolite. Zeolite is a mineral with special negative magnetic charge that neutralize free radicals.
2. Mycotoxins – naturally occurring toxins include mycotoxins, marine biotoxins, cyanogenic glycosides and toxins occurring in poisonous mushrooms. Basic foodstuffs such as maize, cereals and coffee beans can contain high levels of mycotoxins, such as aflatoxins and ochratoxin. Prolonged exposure of this type of toxin can affect the normal development of the immune system and lead to the development of cancer.
How to avoid them:
Limit consumption of corn, wheat, barley, sugar, cheese and coffee. In each of these foods have a high risk of mycotoxin contamination.
3. Organic pollutants are compounds which accumulate in the environment and the human body. Well known examples include dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls, which are unwanted byproducts of industrial processes and waste incineration. They are found in the environment and accumulate in animal organisms and in particular in the fat tissue of animals.
Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause problems with reproduction and development, damage the immune system, disrupt hormonal balance and lead to cancer. After entering dioxins in the body, they are retained for a long time because of their chemical stability and their ability to absorb fat.
How to avoid them:
More than 90% of human contact with dioxins is through food, mainly meat and dairy products, fish and shellfish. Avoid fatty meats and limit consumption of low-quality dairy products and seafood.
