The name of this blog, Against All Toxins, stems from a truth many of us are ignorant to. In our society, the amount of toxins we ingest is dangerous. That is why I am Against All Toxins! As I try to cut my toxic load I believe it is my responsibility as an informed citizen to share the truth with others. So what exactly are toxins you may wonder? According to The United States National Library of Medicine,
“Toxins are substances created by plants and animals that are poisonous to humans. Toxins also include medications that are helpful in small doses, but poisonous when used in large amounts.”
Definitively, Toxins poison the body! Many factors of our lives contribute to Bioaccumulation which is accumulation of toxins in our bodies and once they are there they are hard to expel.
Effects of Toxins in the body
As Toxins build up in the body the immune system suffers and is no longer able to protect itself from microorganisms which can invade the deepest tissues and spread infection all over the body. Naturally our bodies first defense is to fight the antigen off by producing antibodies. But if your immune system becomes weakened from Bioaccumulation those antibodies aren’t as strong as those with healthier immune systems. The defense would be much slower and take a longer time to ward off illnesses.
