WHAT ARE THE HEALTH CONSEQUENCES OF CONTINUED EXPOSURE TO ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS THROUGHOUT A LIFETIME, BEGINNING IN THE WOMB?
Scientists found an average of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns including pesticides, flame retardants, consumer product ingredients, and industrial pollutants. And that's just the beginning. Exposure to contaminants continues thereafter on a daily basis creating a "body burden" or, simply put, an accumulated slurry of chemicals stored in our bodies.
WHAT ARE THESE CHEMICALS USED FOR IN INDUSTRY? HOW ARE WE EXPOSED? IN WHICH BODILY TISSUES ARE THEY STORED AND HOW DO THEY AFFECT OUR OVERALL HEALTH?
Can we detoxify persistent pollutants? Better yet, is it possible to further avoid them? Referencing over 1500 published research papers highlighting the 25 most common chemicals affecting populations worldwide today, Your Body's Environmental Chemical Burden not only provides answers to these questions but includes a comprehensive resource guide containing information on how to limit and even avoid future exposure.
