Chemical detox to prevent cancer is vital. That cannot be stated strongly enough. I could go on for a year about the dangers of personal pollution and the dire consequences of the toxic environment we’re currently living in.
There was a time that the Inuit people were free of the toxins the rest of us carry around daily. Now that they’ve been exposed to the Standard American Diet (SAD), even Inuit mothers show signs of chemical toxins in their breast milk. Their babies – born in some of the most remote locations on the planet – are unable to avoid what I’ve christened the “Chemical Blizzard.”
I get asked a lot about the health benefits of switching to “organic food.” The question people should be asking is how is any food truly organic with rampant air pollution and contaminants in the rainwater that feeds the crops?
What is known as “brown aerosol” pollution consists of miniscule particles of sulfates, nitrates, black carbon, hundreds of organic compounds, and fly ash. When sunlight is absorbed and scattered by aerosols, it creates a brown colored haze. That’s what gives it the name.
Satellite images clearly show this thick, polluted haze scattered all over the globe. It’s not just the “urban” areas either – despite popular belief. No, you can see brown aerosol everywhere from highly populated regions to the once-pristine Alps, the Himalayas, and the vast expanses of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
One of the main sources of this pollution is Asia – prevailing winds have pushed this atmospheric pollution to North America. Streams of yellowish dust have been seen streaming across the Pacific since 1998.
Mercury emitted by power plants and factories all over Asia blows invisibly across the United States and settles into lakes and streams, where it contributes to pollution that makes fish unsafe to eat. Solid particles from Asian primitive oil and coal burning is now a source of solid sooty deposits high in the mountains. Birds are being poisoned as far inland as Payson Arizona, where the trees are thick-crusted with effluvia.
How does chemical detox prevent cancer?
First, you have to know that you’re being exposed to much more than you can imagine and the agencies tasked with protecting you from these lethal compounds are not doing their jobs!
Dr. Sam Epstein is a Professor of Occupational Health and Environmental Medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health. He’s recognized as one of the world’s most influential critics of official cancer policy. Dr Epstein provides copious evidence that chemical pollution is one of the major causes for the soaring cancer rates.
Epstein’s book The Politics of Cancer Revisited documents a great many disturbing facts, including the shocking truth that cancer charities are actively opposing progress in alternative treatments, because of corruption. He also attacks the “white collar crime” of lying and cover-up, to divert attention from the way Big Business is killing everyone with its dirty fall-out.
“As recently as 1986, the NCI (National Cancer Institute) promised annual cancer mortality rates would be halved by the year 2000. The establishment now belatedly admits that cancer rates are increasing sharply. However, with the enthusiastic support of the chemical industry, these are ascribed exclusively to smoking, dietary fat itself (ignoring the tenuous evidence relating this to colon, breast, and other cancers), and “mysterious” causes. Meanwhile it discounts substantial evidence incriminating chemical and radioactive carcinogens permeating the environment, air, water, food, and the workplace. Non-mysterious causes of breast cancer, which the establishment ignores, let alone investigates, include carcinogenic contaminants in dietary fat, particularly pesticides, PCBs, and estrogen (with extensive and unregulated use as growth-promoting animals food additives).” – The Politics of Cancer Revisited
As Sam points out boldly, you are not going to get the truth from official sources. Something is causing the soaring cancer rates and anyone intelligent can quickly spot that increased levels of personal and environmental carcinogens are the main causes of the problem.
The establishment, so closely tied to the huge chemical industry lobby, is simply not going to support your interests over those of Big Business. In other words, you must take control and reduce your personal pollution load where possible. To prevent cancer, chemical detox is the first step…and there is a lot to consider.
It’s playing Russian Roulette to use after-shave, cosmetics, gels, hair dye, paints, household cleaners, solvents, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and so much more in the massive quantities that we do.
Did you know that women who wear makeup daily absorb about five pounds of toxins from cosmetics every year? Products applied topically go through the skin and directly into the bloodstream.
When you add the daily exposure to chemicals, environmental pollutants, and the thousands of fake ingredients in our food supply – it’s a recipe for disaster. Your liver and major detox systems try to keep pace with this lethal tide of chemicals but we are not winning.
These compounds bio-accumulate in your tissues. They do not break down over time, they simply add up. Since they are such strange substances, your body has no means of getting rid of them (xenobiotics). Your only option is to reduce the toxin exposure, keep clean, and do everything possible to help the detox mechanisms. Unfortunately, when this tide of chemicals rises too high, the organs that protect us are the first things to be damaged.
The immune system gets hurt too. One of the number one aspects of what we call “nutrition” is merely supplementation to help our detox pathways. Here are some examples…
Magnesium is involved in over 300 pathways, including Phase I detox.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that gets used up every time it walks off with a toxic molecule and we need to take phenomenal amounts. Oral glutathione doesn’t work but you can take the precursors that help create glutathione inside your cells. Namely alpha-lipoic acid (200 mgm), N-acetyl cysteine or NAC (500 mgm), and s-adenosyl methionine (SAMe) 100 mgm.
We also need B3, B6, molybdenum, and zinc – and this is just to cope with the additional oxidative stress of our poisonous world.
Chemical Detox to Prevent Cancer Includes Heavy Metals
You cannot talk about detoxification of your cells without including the massive overload the average person gets of heavy metals. A number of metals are known to be carcinogenic…
- Arsenic and arsenic compounds
- Beryllium and beryllium compounds
- Cadmium and cadmium compounds
- Nickel compounds
- Hexavalent chromium
The usual target of these toxins are your lungs (though arsenic has a unique association with skin cancers that has been recognized for many years).
In the United States, there is a heavy burden of arsenic poisoning carried to humans via chickens. Roxarsone is a very common arsenic-based additive used in chicken feed, used to promote growth, kill parasites, and improve the color of chicken meat. It is normally benign, but under certain conditions that can occur within live chickens or on farm land, the compound converts into more toxic forms of inorganic arsenic. Arsenic has been linked to bladder, lung, skin, kidney, and colon cancers. Low-level exposure can lead to partial paralysis and diabetes.
Even if you don’t eat chicken, don’t think you have nothing to worry about. Chicken manure is used as fertilizer on vegetable farms and this contains arsenic which then contaminates the vegetables. Arsenic is everywhere.
You’ll be surprised at some of the other sources of arsenic contamination. According to an investigative report in Consumer Reports Magazine, popular rice products including white rice, brown rice, organic rice baby cereal, and rice breakfast cereals, were found to contain arsenic, some at levels that well exceeded safety limits (the EPA recommends 5 parts per billion or ppb maximum). You can reduce arsenic levels in rice by cooking with plenty of water and then rinsing it off (forget the cook’s trick of measuring out the exact quantity of water to make rice, just drain through a sieve or colander when it’s cooked).
Cadmium is also widespread: it is found in grains like wheat and leafy vegetables, which readily absorb cadmium from the soil. This metal may also contaminate fish. It is a constituent of alloys, pigments, batteries, and metal coatings. Cadmium is also found in cigarette fumes and fumes from vehicles. There are many other places you might meet cadmium, even without knowing it.
Avoidance is very difficult. Even babies are being born with heavy metal poisoning they received in the womb. They didn’t eat anything!
If you have cancer or aim to prevent cancer, chemical detox and detox from heavy metals is the key. The known scientific method is called chelation.
Some food or supplement sources that offer natural chelation properties include…
- Cilantro (coriander)
- Apple pectin
- Seaweed (kelp)
- Green algae (chlorella)
- Alpha lipoic acid (doses of 100- 200 mgms)
Beyond these simple compounds you will need to see someone who is licensed to carry out office chelation.
