Toxins undermine our health. And excessive toxin exposure especially undermines our health. Repeated intake of toxins can be a factor in chronic disease and illness. If we are healthy with good immune function and good eliminative function, we are able to manage day-to-day toxins.
Repeated Toxin Exposure Harms and Overworks Our Organs
Smoking marijuana or cigarettes stresses our lungs. Overeating refined carbohydrates causes the pancreas to work harder. Excessive intake of protein (particularly low quality protein), fried foods, poor oils, alcohol, and use of pharmaceutical drugs all cause the kidneys and liver to work harder. When these exposures occur day after day, month after month, year after year, we increase the toxic burden in our bodies and we overwork and stress our organs.
Frequent exposure to a few toxins is one thing, but repeated exposure to numerous toxins can cause the accumulation of these poisons in the body, since many of these substances, (i.e., synthetic chemicals in processed foods) cannot be broken down by the body. With the passage of time, recurring exposure to toxins increases our opportunity for ill health and chronic diseases.
