How did our world become so toxic?
It seems as our world has evolved through the industrial revolution that began in the late 1700’s to the digital revolution of today, we are now seeing the correlation between toxic harmful chemicals in the body and the rise in disease.
In fact, according to the National Health Council, 40% of Americans have been diagnosed with a chronic illness and that number is estimated to rise.
There are dozens of Heavy metals in our environment, some of which include: arsenic, lead, mercury, chromium, and cadmium just to name a few.
Heavy metals are defined as metallic elements that have a relatively high density compared to water.
These metals are very toxic and known to induce adverse health effects in the human body, including cardiovascular diseases, developmental abnormalities, neurologic and neurobehavioral disorders, diabetes, hearing loss, hematologic and immunologic disorders, and various types of cancer.
Because of their high degree of toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury rank among the priority metals that are of public health significance. These metallic elements are considered systemic toxicants that are known to induce multiple organ damage, even at lower levels of exposure. They are also classified as human carcinogens (known or probable) according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
Some phthalates have been shown to have adverse effects on the reproductive system (increase in infertility) and endocrine system (increase in diabetes, obesity and chronic fatigue).
Parabens are known to disrupt hormone function and are linked to breast cancer.
Yes, the FDA banned the sale of products containing BPA back in 2012 but what you may not have known was these companies substituted BPA with BPS and BPF.
“Based on the current literature, BPS and BPF are as hormonally active as BPA, and they have endocrine-disrupting effects.”
Although pesticides have benefits, some also have drawbacks, such as potential toxicity to humans and other species. Take for instance the lawsuit against Monsanto and how the company has been lying and falsifying studies to line there own pockets.

We are sure to see more cases going to trial, and we will just need to watch and see what happens.
When halogens react with metals they produce a wide range of salts, including calcium fluoride, sodium chloride (common table salt), silver bromide and potassium iodide.
Fluoride, Chlorine, and Bromine are toxic in themselves but are also highly detrimental because they tend to block your body’s Iodine receptors, and therefore prevent your body from absorbing the Iodine it needs.
So bottom line, halogens block thyroid functions, they compete with iodine to get into your thyroid and cause your thyroid to not work properly. Your thyroid sets your metabolism rate, so when it’s not functioning properly there’s that risk of obesity.
“Recommended Fluoride levels in the US are twice the level at which thyroid function can be affected, and thyroi dysfunction is rampant in the the US, where an estimated 20 million people are affected. Side effects of thyroid dysfunction include weight gain and depression.” Dr. Mercola

Four reasons I believe saunas are beneficial for your health that are backed by science: Reduce inflammation (inflammation leads to chronic disease), Speeds up recovery (especially awesome if you’re sore after workouts. If you can alleviate soreness, you can actually speed up progress as well), Increases blood flow (which is why it helps with recovery time your muscles are getting the nutrients they need from the increased blood flow), Flushes toxins (you’re sweating the toxins out every time you sit in the sauna). I try to use mine at least two to three times a week for thirty minutes each time. ~Drew Manning
As a result, regular usage of a dry infrared sauna heat therapy for detoxification will provide a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside, at the cellular level.
