No matter how careful we are, there must be some amount of toxins that reside in our body. Much of them are obtained from our food. There are thousands types of chemicals in processed foods, such as coloring, taste enhancers, preservatives, emulsifiers and solvents. It is true that our food contains some toxins, even those fresh fruits and vegetables. Although these substances may be safe in small quantity, as we get older more toxins could accumulate. When they have reached an alarming level, health problems could start to occur. Incorporating various additives is actually an acceptable practice in the food industry.
Some of these substances can’t be metabolized and broken down into simpler chemicals that can be removed. It should be noted that pollutions and contaminations could put aluminium, lead, cadmium and mercury into our body. Herbicides and pesticides could also be stored in our fat layer and released slowly. We should be aware of the effects of toxins in our body, especially if we lack nutrients to do proper things. Some trace minerals are actually essential for our body functions, but excessive presence could cause many bad things. In this case, we should avoid foods that contain too much additives, sweeteners, flavouring and enhancers. So, it is time to say good bye to those orange-colored, cheese-flavored snacks.
People who don’t use common sense would lace their body with toxins each day. The situation could get worse, if we consume food that’s lack in nutrition. Toxins could disrupt our bodily functions and this may cause obesity, due to the impaired metabolism. Our whole society is getting sicker by the minute and much of it can be linked by toxin accumulation and bad food. It’s time for the whole society to wake up and try to make things better. In fact, if the situation continues to get worse, some experts say that parents will eventually outlive their children, due to improper lifestyle among young people.
This could happen because toxins can be found everywhere and their bad effects are increasing by the day. If we continue to eat unhealthy food, our condition will be reduced. At the moment, we could see how toxins have affected the society. Obesity is a common thing in the society and we should look for sources of non-toxic food. Many of these food sources are labelled as organic foods, but it is important for us to verify them. Health experts have said how obesity-related diseases are becoming more common. Many younger people are suffering diabetes and related illness.
We owe it to ourselves to look for ways to protect our body and find safer food. Unfortunately, much of the safe foods can only be found outside our local supermarket. Nothing will change until the government and the whole society starts to act. It is important for us to look after ourselves.
It’s an undisputed fact that modern people are more vulnerable to toxin contamination, so we should try to minimize the exposure. If not, we will get sick more often and we may have much worse quality of life.
