seems to contradict the logic presented to us by the modern medical
association: If we live in an age of wonder drugs, the best surgical
techniques in the world and have the best food supply, then why is
the cancer and disease rate still on the rise?
is a complex question, but certainly one of the most overlooked,
underrated reasons for today’s escalating disease rate is the
presence of toxic substances in our lives. Toxins (poisons) are
making us sick while huge corporations — including chemical
manufacturers — are getting rich. Indeed, many of the same companies
that manufacture chemicals that cause illness are also manufacturing
drugs to treat people from the illness. Mind boggling?
you take into consideration the fact that big business owns and
operates most of the major media — controlling the news we hear and
see every day and night — and mega-corporations create the biggest
source of pollution, then you’ll realize why the dangers of their
toxic outflow is never brought to our attention.
have to hunt for answers ourselves, finding out, for instance, that
we are being poisoned in vaccinations, by our personal care products
(soap, makeup, hair spray, etc.), the foods we eat (containing
pesticides and artificial ingredients), household products to which
we are exposed (paint, lacquers, carpeting, etc.) and even the
vitamins we pop. All of these things are toxic and they all are
taking their toll on our health both personally and globally. It’s a
sad fact of the 21st Century.

Later that day you head out for lunch and
have a diet coke full of toxic artificial sweeteners and a
turkey sandwich with antibiotics and steroids that had been
injected into the animal.
When you drive home in your car, you breathe in traffic fumes
and dioxin and mercury from a nearby incinerator.
And to put the toxic cherry on top, when you settle into your
comfy chair you watch the evening news telling you that the
administration has relaxed laws for polluters because some deal
has been made in
Washington that compromises the
health of your family.
If you happen to get a cavity from the toxic sugar in your diet
and have to see the dentist, the toxic load continues to pile
up. “Dental amalgams, known as silver fillings, are composed of
roughly 50 percent mercury. Studies of people with
mercury-containing dental fillings show a correlation between
the number and size of the fillings and the amount of mercury
excreted in their urine. The relationship suggests that the
mercury is derived from mercury vapor released from the
fillings. Some evidence shows that the level of mercury in the
brain tissue of fetuses, newborns, and young children is also
directly proportional to the number of surfaces of amalgam
fillings the mother has.” (DISCOVER Vol. 26 No. 03, March 2005,

it’s a frustrating fact that we are all being poisoned from all
directions. We are not told on the evening news that the Mighty
Mississippi is one of the most polluted waterways in the world.
We’re not even told when there’s a major pollution spill from an
industry that threatens our lives! Read the book
Evil Genius in the
(Shayne) and you’ll find a number of incidences wherein this has
happened. The media even neglects to tell you that the non-stick pan
on which your dinner is being cooked is known to cause cancer. Then
they tell you that the cold and flu is going around again and you
can “catch” it from your neighbors and kids so you better run out
and get vaccinated with a toxic injection. Vaccinations are sold to
us beneath the banner of prevention and health care, but they are
responsible for causing horrific side effects.
this: “Throughout the 1990s, a 3-month-old baby might receive as
much as 63 micrograms of mercury in a single visit to a
doctor‹roughly 100 times the daily EPA safety level. By the age of 6
months, properly immunized children were exposed to at least 188
micrograms of mercury in a series of at least nine injections.
Although the 1999 FDA action minimized such exposure, some infant
flu vaccines still contain 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose‹more
than 10 times the daily EPA safety level for a 20-pound baby (Paul
Connett, PhD, Fluoride email newsletter) There is mounting concern
that vaccinations are at the root of childhood diseases such as
BUGS, JUST POISONS
the opinion of this writer, not without scientific evidence, that
much of what is termed the common cold these days is merely the
effect of toxic exposure, yet it is blamed on viruses, bacteria and
other mysterious germs. Following the Christmas
and New Years’ holidays, for instance, the rate of illness
skyrockets. It is usually blamed on the cold weather, which
somehow is supposed to create “the bug” that becomes an epidemic.
But if you think about it, during the holidays is when we eat all
the wrong foods, including these toxic substances: sugar, artificial
ingredients, alcohol, food dyes, and trans
fatty acids. It’s more of a wonder why some people DO NOT get sick
than why so many DO.
Volumes can be, and have been, written detailing the way toxins
affect our health and how we are
overexposed every waking minute. But without making this a very
depressing article (if it isn’t already), suffice it to say, it’s
time we take action as parents as well as citizens.
Toxins cause health problems. Sometimes these are acute (sudden
onset with a brief duration of symptoms) and sometimes chronic (a
long-lasting illness). Here are some symptoms of toxic exposure.
Notice how many of these are customarily attributed to “mysterious”
causes and germs or genetic factors:
Colds and flu
Problems with teeth and gums
Skin disease (psoriasis, eczema, acne, etc.)
Chronic fatigue and exhaustion
CAN YOU DO?
Fortunately, there are several things you can do to minimize your
exposure to toxins as well as getting them out of your body. The
first, of course, is to be aware that toxins exist and have an
effect on your health. Go online to scorecard.org and find out who’s
polluting your neighborhood. Next…
Eliminate these items from your diet: all artificial
ingredients, soda pop, margarine, hydrogenated fats, partially
hydrogenated fats, decaf coffee (unless organic), NutraSweet,
MSG, refined sugar and junk foods
Buy and eat only organically grown foods
Switch over to only natural personal care products. This take
some homework, but fortunately, there are a few good sources to
read, including Kim Erickson’s Drop Dead Gorgeous, the Safe
Shopper’s Bible, and A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic
Stop using poisonous cleaners in your home. Don’t use bleach,
chlorine, ammonia or other unnatural chemicals. You’d be
surprised how well water and elbow grease works.
Don’t have your home and office sprayed on a regular basis for
insects. You get poisoned every time you do.
Read all food labels on products. If there is the name of a
chemical on the label, find out what it is before you eat it.
Buy an electric, hybrid or fuel-efficient vehicle and stop
adding to world pollution
Don’t live near a factory or incinerator
only for your drinking water. And buy a home filter for your
shower and bath water — you don’t want to consume fluoride,
chlorine or any other such chemicals commonly found in tap
Increase the number of vegetables you eat in your diet. The most
important cancer-fighting foods are broccoli, cauliflower,
Brussels sprouts, cabbage, radishesand kale because they
biochemically convert fat-soluble toxins to water-soluble ones
so that they can be removed from your body through the kidneys.
