Toxin exposure is an underlying factor in all disease. Toxin exposure is an area often overlooked when we are struggling with health issues: mental and physical, whether it is obesity, autoimmune disease, Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, asthma and allergies, neurological diseases... Watching this 90 second video summarizing a study conducted by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL will convince you to eat organic for your and your children's health. Toxin exposure can also be greatly reduced by choosing nontoxic and fragrance free cleaning products for your home and laundry, personal care products such as makeup, face and body soaps, shampoos/conditioners, storing food in glass or stainless steel containers, not using herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers in your home or yard, choosing furniture made from real wood, not pressed wood, avoid plastics as much as possible... The list is infinite in ways to reduce chemical toxin exposure.
