Environmental Toxicity


About
The hazardous effect that a given compound of chemical has on the environment (soil, water, air) observed during environmental tests on the effects of the substance on aquatic and plant life.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Asbestos is extremely dangerous when it breaks down and fibers are released into the air.
  • Injections of liver extract have aided in good results in people.
  • Pots and pans leave food with metal residue. Some are harmful over time and others are good for you (cast-iron pots, for example).
  • Shampooing carpets can be harmful the top may be dry but the underneath is still damp and grow thousands of organisms.


Advice
  • Avoid using bug bombs or insect sprays.
  • Be careful about carbon monoxide poisoning. Make sure appliances are well-ventilated. Don't run your car in the garage.
  • Consider getting an air filter or ionizer to purify the air you breathe. Animal odors, pollen, smog, smoke, bacteria, and dust will be taken out of the air.
  • Fiber is a necessary part of your diet. Oat bran, wheat bran, and apple pectin are good sources.
  • It is best to clean with nontoxic products. Look for natural alternatives to chemical mixtures.
  • Make sure your home is free of radon. Hire someone to come and check for radon, and then fix any leaks or cracks that will correct this problem.
  • Make sure your home is well-ventilated in order to avoid exposure to natural gas, radon, smoke, pesticides, and other chemicals. Make sure your flooring is made of exterior-grade plywood that is non-toxic instead of plywood that contains formaldehyde. Use a nontoxic sealant.
  • Scrape off loose paint. Be sure to use protective gear as needed as older paints have lead in them.
  • Stay away from smoke.
  • Steam-distilled water is recommended.
  • Vacuum bags should be changed regularly to ensure proper filtering.
