Toxins

 

Heavy metals

it’s important to understand that if you’re deficient in essential metals, your body will actually use toxic heavy metals as “stand-ins” instead.

For example:

  • Calcium is replaced by lead, which deposits primarily in bone, and disrupts the formation of red blood cells. Lead contributes to poor bone health such as osteopenia and osteoporosis.
  • Zinc is replaced by cadmium, which tends to accumulate heavily in your kidneys. Cadmium overload is associated with peripheral neuropathy.
  • Magnesium is replaced by aluminium, which, among other things, induces neurochemical changes and has been identified as a contributing factor to developing Alzheimer’s.
  • Manganese is replaced by nickel, which is carcinogenic.

So not only do you need to make sure you’re getting vital nutrients in order to avoid this toxic metal replacement process, you also need nutrients to aid your body’s natural detoxification process.

Toxins are naturally eliminated from your body through your liver. It converts many (but not all) of the harmful chemicals you ingest or absorb into water-soluble molecules that are flushed out in your urine or faeces. 1


Genetically modified foods

the excerpts below are from http://jasper.cmsarchitects.com/pipermail/pil-pc-oceania/2009-May/012736.html

Read the full article it is mind blowing that GM foods and crops

are being grown

and introduced into the food chain.

"... three important issues: first, introduction of the same gene into two different types of cells can produce two very distinct protein molecules; second, the introduction of any gene, whether from a different or the same species, usually significantly changes overall gene expression and therefore the phenotype of the recipient cell; and third, enzymatic pathways introduced to synthesize small molecules, such as vitamins, could interact with endogenous pathways to produce novel molecules. The potential consequence of all of these perturbations could be the biosynthesis of molecules that are toxic, allergenic, or carcinogenic. And there is no a priori way of predicting the outcome. "2

The rest of this article is worth reading too.

When male rats were fed GM soy, their testicles actually changed
colour from the normal pink to dark blue.3 Mice fed GM soy had altered
young sperm.4 Even the embryos of GM fed parent mice had significant
changes in their DNA.5 Mice fed GM corn in an Austrian government study
had fewer babies, which were also smaller than normal.6

And then:

The experience of actual GM-fed experimental animals is scary. When GM soy was fed to female rats, most of their babies died within three weeks compared to a 10% death rate among the control group fed natural soy.7 The GM-fed babies were also smaller, and later had problems getting pregnant.8

So Just from reading the above, Do you really want to risk knowingly eating GM foods? I don't
