Our Toxic World: Environmental Pollution and Our Health
Do you know someone with cancer, heart disease, or diabetes? What about autoimmune disease, neurological disease, hormone disorders, or children with behavioral disorders? The answer is more than likely a big YES! As the rates for these disorders are increasing around the world, especially among our children, it begs the question.Why?
Despite being one of the wealthiest, Americans have fallen to one of the sickest countries in the world. Besides the declining nutritional intake from our fast-food diets, one possible explanation for this increasing disease is the effect pollution and toxic chemicals are having on the entire animal population.
In todays polluted world, toxic chemicals can be found in our air, our water, and yesour food! They are unavoidable and found virtually EVERYWHERE and now in EVERY LIVING THING including in YOU!!
They have complex names like heavy metals, pesticides, chlorofluorocarbons and phthalates, yet they are found in less complex, everyday places like our homes and workplaces. Our hygiene products, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, clothing, carpets and even dental fillings are just a few of their seemingly safe sources. Research proves that we are slowly being poisoned by industrial chemicals, smoke from burning garbage, and gasoline-diesel fumes.
According to the Environmental Working Group, the average American is known to have 56 toxic chemicals in their bloodstream. Medical studies link these toxins as potential causes of our nations biggest killers such as heart disease, cancer, and neurological disease like strokes, Alzheimers, and Parkinsons to name a few.
Could these chemicals be compromising you or your familys health?
Dr. Andrew Iverson, a Yelm graduate, will present these topics and how you and your family can avoid these harmful chemicals. This presentation will focus on what chemical pollutants and environmental toxins are, where they are found, and how they affect you.
