Everything seems to be polluted nowadays, including the water, environment, air and the food we eat. Even the clothes we wear are contaminated, so it seems there’s no escape from toxins and chemicals. However, you shouldn’t worry – there are many ways in which you can prevent the harmful effects of pollutants and lead a healthy life.
The 4 most dangerous chemicals that can damage our body and brain are artificial sweeteners, monosodium glutamate, fluoride and heavy metals.
These sweeteners can be found in anything from candy, soft drinks, yogurt, cereal, bubble gum and sugar-free products. Aspartame is the most popular artificial sweeteners these days. It’s a combination of aspartic acid, methanol and phenylalanine, and is used in just about every food you can think of. When it dissolves in the body, it creates a chemical reaction which may lead to the development of tumors. There are more than 90 different symptoms associated with aspartame poisoning such as anxiety, migraines and depression, which is why you should avoid it. Always read the label of the food you buy in order to protect yourself from this artificial sweetener.
MSG (monosodium glutamate)
Monosodium glutamate is a type of concentrated salt which is used as a flavor enhancer. The effects of monosodium glutamate on the body and brain are highly damaging and have been related to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. In order to avoid MSG, we recommend staying away from processed foods.
Heavy metals are highly toxic and can’t be removed easily from the body. Heavy metals are found in certain foods, vaccines, dental products, agriculture products, chicken and fish meat. These toxins are highly harmful for newborns as their immune system is pretty weak.
According to Dr. Robert Nash, the toxic effects of the heavy metal hydrargyrum can lead to a variety of neurological disorders and significantly damage the brain. Avoid getting unnecessary vaccines (flu) and always be careful about the type of fish you buy.
Fluoride is being added to our water supply by the government who are saying that it’s not harmful and is actually beneficial for prevention of dental problems. However, a recent research from China has shown that fluoride is dangerous, and that exposure to it can lower the IQ in newborns and children. The study has shown that even the allowed limits of fluoride added to water in the USA is harmful, and has been associated with mental disorders and brain damage.
In order to avoid fluoride poisoning, you should avoid drinking tap water without a water filtration system installed.
