The following staggering statistics about Chemicals in the Body were found on The World Counts and stand as a warning for everyone who is concerned with their health.
700 Chemicals and Counting!
Currently the body’s burden is at least 700 chemicals that were not found in the body before the 20th century including arsenic, formaldehyde, mercury, bisphenol A and phthalates. We’re exposed to chemicals through the products we buy such as cosmetics, shampoo, plastic food containers, paints, and electronics. We are all involuntarily part of an uncontrolled “cocktail experiment” as our systems react to the chemical pollutants in our system. Chemical “cocktails” occur when synthetic chemicals combine in our body and can have damaging effects. This cocktail effect of several individual harmless chemicals has been shown to severely damage the reproductive organs in rats. It’s staggering to think of what effect a cocktail of 700 chemicals has to our bodies.
Cancer On The Rise!
Cancer diagnosis statistics, provided by the World Health Organization report 12 million people diagnosed each year and the number is constantly rising. In a single generation, the cancer rates for women have increased by 22 percent and 56 percent for men. Testicular cancer rates are rising. Between 1960 and 2002, men from the United States, Europe and New Zealand were 7 times more likely to suffer from testicular cancer. Chemical pollution has many negative effects and one is male infertility. Sperm counts have gone down 50% in the last 50 years. Currently 100 out of every 1000 men are functionally infertile, which is 20 times higher than it was in 1939.
Chemical Over-The-Counter (OTC) Product Count Climbing!
Currently there are over 82,000 man-made chemicals on the market with 3 new chemical products added daily. The overwhelming majority of these chemicals used in products have never been tested as to the damage to our bodies, our immune systems, and reproductive systems or even if they cause cancer.
The Disappearing Male!
The Disappearing Male is a documentary about the toxic threat to the male reproductive system. The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.
We know that detoxification is not an option, it is mandatory! What is not eliminated from our body accumulates and causes health problems. Our livers and kidneys work hard to keep up with the body’s burden but they cannot eliminate such an excessive amount of toxins. Medicinal embryonic plant extracts (EPEs) are nature’s arsenal with an unequaled capacity for detoxification: As Good As New, Liver Depurato, and Silver Birch Sap.
