No matter what we do, no matter how healthy our diets or our lifestyles are, no matter how protected we think we are we will always have to deal with toxins. While it is nearly impossible to stop all toxins from getting into our body, it is not impossible to detoxify our bodies.

What Are These Toxins?

Whether airborne, foodborne, or otherwise, toxins get into our system. They’re called toxins, because they are alien to your system. Yes, bacteria is a necessary part of everyday life, however, pollutants should not be. But they are.

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) accumulate in the environment and therefore, the human body. POPs like dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls are byproducts of industrial processes and waste incineration. They accumulate in animal food chains, particularly in fatty tissues. Dioxins can cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage your immune system and have been linked to cancer.

And pollutants aren’t the only toxins to our body: mycotoxins and heavy metals are the other two big ones. Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins that can affect your development, immune system, and can even cause cancer.

Foods and beverages you consume daily probably contain mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and ochratoxin. Luckily, there are natural foods and products you can eat to lower the amount of toxins in your system. But what about those heavy metals?

There are over 35 metals that can cause toxicity in your body, the most common of which are mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. If left untreated they can cause neurological and kidney damage as well as limiting the benefits of other health regimes you follow.

How To Avoid These Toxins

Mycotoxins

Limit your consumption of corn, wheat, barley, sugar, cheeses, and coffee. Avoid taking antibiotics as they all have a high risk of mycotoxin contamination.

POPs

More than 90% of dioxin intake is from food, mainly meat and dairy products, fish, and shellfish. Avoid fatty meats, cut dairy out of your diet, and stay away from low-grade seafood.

Heavy Metals

Cadmium is found in evaporated milk, cigarettes, and refined wheat flour. Also, stay away from soda from vending machines, as the machines typically have cadmium in the pipes.

Lead is linked to dementia, Alzheimer’s, attention disorders, and aggression. Lead can be found in cigarette smoke (even second-hand), canned food, refined chocolate, and in older buildings’ pipes.

Mercury is maybe the most destructive because of its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and affect the brain. Fish (but not all fish) have a high potential to contain mercury. The other place mercury is often found is in immunizations, in the form of thimerosol – a mercury-based preservative.

The main way these toxins and pollutants get into our food is through pollution – air, water, soil. The animals and vegetables we eat all use air, water, and soil in their environments and that is how these toxins get into our systems.
