Be Aware of the Toxins in your World

by Vickie Johnston, Owner and Founder, H2O Health

With over 84,000 toxic chemicals in our environment, staying healthy is tough. The toxic chemicals in our environment are growing at an alarming rate.

Just 100 years ago, many of the chemicals being used today did not exist. This includes chemicals needed to produce such things as modern medicines, gasoline, plastics, soda, pesticides, make up, perfumes, personal-care products, cleaning supplies, building materials; the list just goes on and on. 

On average every man walks out his door with over 200 chemicals on or in his body, and women walk out with over 400!

In addition to the chemicals already being used in the modern world, more chemicals are coming into existence every day; it is hard to determine because there are over 10,000,000 hydrocarbons alone. Chemicals are affecting our food chain, water and our health as new compounds are being created daily.

There are over 4,000 known chemicals in our drinking water alone, with more being introduced all the time. 

The average consumer is unaware of the poisons we all are consuming daily. I know I was. I was buying organic food, bottled water and vitamins trying everything to stay healthy. I thought I knew what I was doing. I listened to credible doctors, read books, went to seminars, worked in three U.S. hospitals and woke up one day only to find I had been wasting my money.

Until you understand how the human body works and what it needs to stay well, it is impossible to stay well and you can’t fix it.

Stay tuned for the second part of this article next month.
