Influence of toxins on children
Sometimes the costs of modern nutrition are manifested in the most alarming way. Unfortunately, the main victims of toxins are children, who, due to the small size of their body, receive the greatest number of toxins. When patients reject the idea of eating organic foods, I tell them about my colleague and friend Tina, with whom we worked together in Palm Springs. Thanks to her, the winner of the national bodybuilding championship, the EcoChallenges contestant and the mother of two wonderful daughters, I ran into one of the first cases of toxins in my practice.
Imported products overcome a long way and are exposed to a whole complex of chemicals for better safety, so try to choose the products of your area
A few years ago she called me and with alarm in her voice reported that her seven-year-old daughter Annie had a period of time, her breasts began to form and her pubic hair was breaking through. I immediately sent her to the best pediatric endocrinologist that I could find to exclude the possibility of developing a tumor in the pituitary gland, the gland that regulates the activity of sex hormones. When it became clear that there was no tumor, the doctor concerned, however, so early in the maturation of the girl, suggested that she prescribe her medicine, which prevents the development of sex hormones.
We decided to try to find an alternative treatment option and soon found to our great amazement that Annie is not alone. Chemicals in everyday food, especially hormones in animal products, mimicked sex hormones that would appear in Annie's body only a few years later. She experienced artificially induced puberty - a sign of internal chaos, which became the cause not only of psychological trauma, but also of the general imbalance of the body. Tina immediately stopped buying anything other than organic products that received 100% approval from the US Department of Agriculture. Her food costs have increased 3-fold, but these costs have justified themselves. Annie stopped her menstrual period, her breasts and pubic hair stopped growing - until the corresponding age.
The main victims of toxins are children, who, due to the small size of their bodies, receive the greatest number of them
This is a very instructive story, serving as a visual demonstration of how exposure to toxins contained in food can disturb the most diverse functions of the body and how the body is able to recover from a radical change in diet. If Annie started taking medicine that the doctor wanted her to prescribe, she would receive additional doses of toxins, and her problem would not go away anywhere.
Believing that if it is useful for the child, it means, it is useful for us, we drink milk and use it for making hundreds of other dishes. We are the only mammals who drink milk after the end of the breastfeeding period. It's the same as fueling a motorcycle - the engine of a motorcycle will fail. Worse still, the milk is saturated with hormones and antibiotics - this makes the dubious argument irrefutable. We are etching with milk.
The technological processes used today to process food so that they become "safe", stored longer, ripened faster and looked attractive, turn them into poison
In my own history of immersion in the North American culture of supermarkets and loss of health there is nothing unusual.
The results of scientific research indicate that immigrants changing the traditional diet from natural products with a lot of natural nutrients to the American diet, including foods with a high sugar content and chemical beverages, extremely rapidly develop obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases - during one generation.
My patients are often surprised to hear from me that the most common source of toxins is a plate of food on their kitchen table. Cereals, dairy products, eggs and soy are causing allergy in many people. Part of the reason is the modern way of producing these products using chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and pesticides, but this also happens because the human digestive tract is not adapted to digest them in large quantities.
Another source of toxins today is water.
Our tap water is treated with chlorine for the rapid destruction of microorganisms, and this only means that large organisms, such as humans, will die a little longer. Fluorine is added to some plumbing systems to strengthen teeth, but it is a known toxin that is currently blamed for problems with the thyroid, kidneys, central nervous system, bone system, including cancer (not to mention the low coefficient of intellectual development ).
However, in our ordinary water there is not only this. Carcinogens from industrial toxins contained in the atmosphere and in industrial wastes, in significant amounts, penetrate through sewage treatment plants into water supply systems. The new danger is a by-product of the disinfection of drinking water, formed as a result of the reaction of the chemicals used for this purpose with the natural organic material contained in the source water. And that is not all.
Recent studies have shown that 41 million Americans drink water contaminated with antidepressants, hormones, cardiovascular drugs and other drugs that enter water systems through sewage treatment plants.
We also forgot how to pack products in simple, natural ways. Instead of taking away vegetables, fruits and meat from the store, wrapped in paper or packed in a basket, we buy them in plastic bags. As a result, toxins from plastic penetrate into the products. This is an artificial mixture, including chemical compounds - phthalates, one of the most common chemicals produced today, giving plastic rigidity. We encounter phthalates everywhere, but most often they are found in water and bottled beverages. And although they penetrate into our food and drinks in microscopic amounts, their effect can accumulate. The chemical structure of phthalates imitates hormones. Over time, when their level in the body increases, they disrupt the function of hormones. It's as if the dispatching service stopped working at the airport. Signals are confused, and radio is chaotic for no apparent reason.

Influence of toxins on children
- EFFECTS OF TOXINS ON HEALTH
Each toxic molecule causes a cascade of reactions that propagate like circles on the smooth water surface of a quiet lake formed as a result of the drop of a single drop. These circles diverge far, as far as the eye can see. Similarly, you can observe the chemical traces of each toxin after a long time after it initiated a chain of events. But
- The effect of iron deficiency on the development of children
Deficiency of iron affects the energy processes in the cells of various organs. The pronounced sideropenia causes disturbances in brain cells through several mechanisms: reduction of DNA synthesis, decrease in fluidity of membranes due to an increase in cholesterol content in membranes, decrease in cytochrome C-oxidase activity. Experimental study of the process of iron intake in brain tissue showed
- Causes of diseases and injuries in children, their effect on the body
For prevention, child injuries and accidents, children should always be in the field of view of adults, not to remain alone either indoors or during walks. All furniture should be stable, pictures - hang firmly, electrical appliances, plugs, switches must be out of reach for children. On the territory of a preschool institution, it is necessary to remove all sharp objects: nails, iron,
T-2-toxin is a product of the life of fungi of the genus Fusar-ium, so until the late 60's the toxicoses caused by this mycotoxin were diagnosed as fusarotoxicoses. Many authors have been studying the fusarotoxicosis in our country (A.X. Sarkisov, 1948, MI Salikov, 1956; NA Spivtseva, 1966; IA Kurmanov, 1960-1971, etc.). A fusariotoxicosis clinic was described in a large
- Quantum toxins
Toxicity is not limited to the sphere of food and chemicals. There is another kind of toxicity, the same pervasive and having the same effect on health, although this influence is more difficult to measure. Toxic thoughts, toxic attitudes, a sense of anxiety, which is a by-product of modern life, are all contaminants that negatively affect our consciousness and
- What is a toxin?
Toxin is something that disrupts the normal course of physiological processes and has a negative effect on the body's functions. Toxins are divided into many different types, having completely different properties, originating from many different sources and possessing different mechanisms of destructive effect. Regardless of how you feel about this problem, knowledge of what is
- BACTERIAL TOXINS
Classification of bacterial toxins. Louis Pasteur in 1887 conducted experiments proving that substances that are formed as a result of the life of microorganisms and are found in nutrient broth, you can cause the same clinical signs of the disease, as well as when infected by the causative agent of the disease. E. Ru and A. Yersin in their experiments in 1889 confirmed this conclusion.
- Diagnosis of toxin damage
How can you find out that you are exposed to toxins? Symptoms of this effect are manifested individually, but it is quite possible to learn how to identify them. I always carefully examine my patients through the prism of detoxification. Remember fatigue and Tony allergy? Depression and weight gain Kate? Robert, who is in his sixth decade, complained of unpredictable behavior
- Disinfection of toxins is a function of the liver
Toxins and mucus that are released into the circulatory and lymphatic systems, as soon as the detoxification regime is turned on, should be neutralized and removed from the body. Why? Because they contain free radicals - electrically charged molecules, which, upon contact, corrode tissues and damage cells. In addition, they violate various functions - the division and reproduction of cells,
- TEST # 1. Check for toxins
Answer the following questions and evaluate your state on a ten-point scale: 1 point - absolutely not or almost never, 10 points - happens every day or corresponds to 100%. Circle the appropriate score. The more points you have, the more you need to carry out any detox program. After carrying out the program, I will suggest that you pass this test again,
- Reduction of toxins
Consider all possible factors of exposure to toxins and stress and make the following changes in our life for the next 12 months. These are the most important changes that can only be realized by living in a toxic world. · Replace cleaning products and personal care products containing harmful chemicals with natural products. · Obtain a water purification system. · Purchase the system
- Where do toxins come from?
The results of the research indicate that in every modern person in the body in measurable quantities there are several hundred synthetic chemicals. These contaminants did not exist until the beginning of the twentieth century and played no part in the chemistry of the body. We can safely assume that we are all burdened with a toxic burden as a result of the impact of synthetic
- Toxic symphony: the impact of a whole complex of toxins
It is necessary to know the following: 1) toxins accumulate in tissues and cells faster than they are derived from them; 2) toxins act both alone and together with each other. Scientists admit that they do not know anything about how the thousands of chemicals we are exposed to interact within our tissues and cells. But we know that there is synergy when the effect
- DAY TWENTY-FIVE - THAT IS PROTECTED IN TOXINS
As we say about ourselves: "My body has accumulated toxins and the organs of excretion of these toxins with their quantity can not cope, therefore toxins climb out through the skin." All right, the body is not a fool, he tries to rid himself of poison as soon as possible. The instinct of self-preservation works. And that's interesting: it turns out that additional information is hidden in the containers with toxic waste.
