Mercury

It can be found in older amalgam fillings in the mouth. Please have them removed by a professional dentist that specializes in mercury removal. Mercury is linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Coriander (Cilantro) will help to pull mercury out of the body. A liver cleanse will also help in removing the mercury. It also may be in infant immunizations.

Lead

A component found in many plumbing systems and water systems.

Carbon monoxide

This is formed from incomplete combustion of fuel – leaking furnaces, chimneys, gas stoves, wood stoves, fireplaces, gas water heaters, and auto exhaust. Check your appliances.

Plastics

They are used in just about everything in our lives in one form or another. It is a moldable synethic material made from petroleum or coal. They can disrupt our endocrine system and cause skin rashes. The softer the plastic the more off gas it does, as heat causes plastic to off gas. Water bottles are made with plastics, TVs, boots, new shoes, automobiles, notebooks, blender, mattress, and telephones are mostly plastic. You can’t remove all plastics from your home but what you can you should. These are things we breathe in everyday.

Radon

Is an odorless gas, which may cause lung cancer – found in lead plumbing pipes from older homes, lead based paint, crystal tableware, certain mini blinds, and granite countertops

Triclosan

These can be found in liquid soap, cosmetics, kitchen ware and children’s toys. Triclosan also may be present in toothpaste. Triclosan is EPA registered as a pesticide. A class of chemicals suspected of causing cancer in humans, it is similar in structure to dioxin. Triclosan is a hormone disruptor which can lead to circulatory collapse, cold sweats, and convulsions. It is stored in our body fat; it can accumulate to toxic levels which can lead to brain hemorrhages, heart conditions, kidney damage and paralysis.

Phthalates

These are in plastics like vinyl flooring, plastic food packaging, plastic bags, children’s toys, shower curtains, soap. Plastic phthalates can damage hormone receptors leading to loss of sex drive and energy, damage brain chemistry leading to learning disabilities and hyperactivity. They accumulate in the organs and trigger cancer of the prostate, breast, lung, and the thyroid.

Bisphenol A

This is found in the lining of metal cans, food and drink containers, baby bottles, tethers, toys, and dental sealants.

Per fluorinated chemicals

Used to make stain repellents and nonstick surfaces – like Teflon cookware, microwave popcorn bags, stain guard clothing, furniture, and carpets

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)

Chemicals released into the air as a gas – found in air fresheners, hair spray, perfumes, cleaning products, paints, carpets, furniture made from pressed wood.

Ammonia

This may cause a burning sensation in the eyes, nose and throat or pain in the lungs, nausea, tearing and coughing.

Ethylene glycol

It is the same poison we find in our windshield washer fluid.

Styrene

Used on fake wood, fake rubber, fake leather, electrical wire coatings, dashboards, flooring, appliances, and office supplies.

Arsenic

Used on deck wood, paints.

PCB’s and Dioxins

Outgas from carbonless copy paper, plastics, inks, paints, furnishing, adhesives and fluorescent light bulbs. Dioxin is man-made in part through the manufacturing of plastics, pesticides and other chemicals.

Benzene

Is the backing of carpets and is a known cause of leukemia. Benzene is also known to affect the central nervous system, cause nausea, headaches, dizziness and convulsions.

Xylene

This may be found in gasoline, paint, varnish, shellac, rust preventatives, permanent markers, and cigarette smoke.

Coal tar

Maybe in some prescriptions and over the counter meditations like psoriasis creams and cause cancer.

Formaldehyde

This is a carcinogen which causes dizziness, coughing and wheezing. Found in clothing and chipboard, or particle board, glues, plastic, cosmetics, inks, vaccines, wood floors, new carpets, linoleum and cabinets. Used to embalm the dead.

X-rays

Are carcinogenic and ultrasounds are harmful to the baby. The more x-rays you are submitted to the greater the dose of radiation in your body. Radiation causes cell damage and death. Examples of radiation are microwave cooking, x-rays, fault lines, power lines, cell phones, computers, household appliances, fluorescent lighting, hair dyes, and irradiated foods.

Diesel exhaust

Can aggravate asthma and increase allergies, can trigger heart attacks and depression.

EMF (electromagnetic field)

Voluntary: from sources that are in our control. Baby monitors, dimmer switches, outlets, TV, smoke/carbon detectors, air purifiers, cell phones, microwaves, security systems, surge protectors, and fans.

Non voluntary: satellite, transmitters, broadcast transmitters, transformers, power lines, etc.

Mold

Mold is an indoor air pollutant, which grows in damp dark environments. Keep things dry and light so that mold won’t grow in hampers, storage areas, closets, drawers, old upholstered furniture, old wallpaper, carpeting, books, leaky roofs, showers, windowsills, humidifiers and air conditioning systems.

Cadmium

Symptoms are hypertension, angina, high cholesterol, cancer, osteoporosis, hormone deficiencies, depression, pain, migraines, ringing in the ears, arthritis and more.

Toluene

A mono substituted benzene derivative. Used as an industrial feedstock and as a solvent. Symptoms are soft spoon-shaped nails, abnormal menstrual periods, liver damage, heart attack, depression, poor memory, brain fog, numbness and tingling or poor coordination, and more.

PCB’s

Found in meats, not one chemical but a family of over 200 chemicals.

Phosphates

Found in many household products – goes into water and makes animals sick. They are made from hydrocarbons derived from petroleum.

Silicone

Breast implants may cause auto immune disorders like lupus, fibromyalgia.

Titanium

Hip replacements cause cardiac arrhythmia.
