Food Sources At Risk: Toxic Chemicals Being Emitted Overseas, Finding Their Way Into North American And European Streams and Lakes

Recently, the Chinese government has issued two high level pollution warnings to residents of Beijing. During that period, businesses, schools, and government offices were closed. One of the world’s largest cities in the world was literally shut down with no traffic flow. North Americans and Europeans may think that they are immune from these pollutants because of distance and geography. Not true!

They may also think that these pollutants do not get into their food chain and affect the food that they eat -- especially food that has been cultivated domestically. Again, not true.

Through a process called biomagnification, these pollutants and other dangerous toxins, including Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP’s) are able to freely travel the world and deposit themselves into the soil, lakes and rivers of North American and European cities and towns. These toxins enter the ecosystem and eventually build up to dangerous toxic levels.

Pesticides, which included DDT and 11 other chemicals have been given the unceremonious title of the The Dirty Dozen. These are chemicals that the international community has deemed the most dangerous.

What was once a Beijing problem is now a New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto, and Paris problem.

Human Health Affected

In a recent article, Eldon Dahl, doctorate of natural medicine discussed the dangers of pesticides and POP’s when he stated “Pesticides are responsible for a number of diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, asthma, birth defects, body burden, cancer, diabetes, endocrine disruption, learning/developmental disorders, Parkinson's disease, and sexual/reproductive dysfunction."

Our world has become a small place and pollutants in a distant country find their way into our lives and this is why we cannot be complacent when it comes to health. Governmental authorities cannot be relied upon to screen the things that keep us healthy, like food and even supplements; we must screen these things for ourselves. We must become investigators, digging deeper to find out where our food is being produced buying locally if possible and organic where additional screening is in place. Contaminated food sources without a doubt will lead to added disease, it’s inevitable. We must remain vigilant with critical thinking and question everything for unfortunately we are fighting for our very lives in order to remain healthy.

Keeping the immunity strong in act of prevention begins in the gut and by taking probiotics like Laktokhan is very helpful. In addition the maintenance of our immune defence, through T-cell stimulation by taking raw desiccated Thymus Gland.
