This is a very important book, one that must be read by all Canadians. It will alert the reader to all the toxins that are available and how we can avoid inhaling and using these harmful chemicals so that we don’t get ill.
I was dumbfounded by which products have these harmful products. They are everyday products that we use every day, such as bottled water, animal products, cosmetics and household items. Who would have thought that was the case? And over time, these products can harm our health substantially.
We all have to take steps to ensure that we don’t use these products often or at all. The best thing we could do is to start buying organic and to stop using any product with petroleum and plastic. Even this will be a BIG step forward. Instead, we should try and do the following:
- Use natural personal-care products that don’t contain chemicals like phthalates or parabens;
- Eat more organic food to avoid pesticides;
- Drink water from the tap;
- Use natural fibres and green products in your home;
- Eat more vegetables and less meat to avoid toxin-grabbing animal fat;
- Sweat more;
- Avoid wacky quick-fix detoxes and optimize your body’s natural detox mechanisms by adopting a detox lifestyle;
- Buy less, buy green;
- Support politicians who believe in a greener economy and organizations that work for a cleaner environment.
All of these things are doable. All we have to do is rethink how we live a bit.
This book is especially relevant to women because hormonal balance cannot be achieved without reducing our toxin exposure and improving our internal detoxification systems. It certainly was an eye-opening book for me.
This is a GREAT book, and I am glad that I picked it up in my important seasonal book section at the Library.
