With more than 77,000 chemicals in active production in North America, scientists estimate that everyone alive today carries within their body at least 700 chemicals, most of which have not been well studied. The effects of this growing burden of chemicals are not seen or felt until years later, when we come down with a chronic illness.

Toxic Chemicals - EndAllDisease

A study published in 2008 reported that 90-95% of cancer cases are caused by environmental toxins, and that cancer can be prevented with major lifestyle changes.
Sources of Chemical Exposures:

The following summary exposes the sources of chemicals in our everyday lives that can lead to disease.


Food producers use any number of 14,000 different laboratory-made chemicals to make food look fresher and increase its shelf-life.
In an attempt to improve the flavor of food, chemicals like MSG and artificial sweeteners like Aspartame may also be added.
Chemical pesticides and herbicides used to produce conventionally-grown crops can be found in processed foods.

Water _

In the book Detoxify or Die, author Sherry A. Rogers reports that the average city water contains over 500 different chemicals._
A study from Goethe University Frankfort found that drinking bottled water leeches over 24,000 different chemicals into your body.
Even home filtration systems like distilled or reverse osmosis do not eliminate all chemicals from the water.

Air _

A 2013 press release by the World Health Organization declared that outdoor air pollution is a leading cause of cancer deaths
The Environmental Protection Agency has found that indoor levels of pollutants are “2 to 5 times higher – and occasionally more than 100 times higher – than outdoor pollutant levels.”
After testing air quality in 200 of the most popular cars in 2011, researchers found high concentrations of more than 275 chemicals associated with birth defects, learning impairment, liver toxicity and cancer.

Hygiene _

U.S. researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors.
Dozens of carcinogenic chemicals can be found in drugstore shampoo, soap, face wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, laundry detergent, tampons, lipstick, and other personal care products.
An estimated 8000 chemicals are used to transform raw materials into fabric. “Often, the clippings from fabric mills are so loaded with dangerous chemicals they are handled like toxic waste,” states German Chemist Michael Braungart.

After eliminating from our lives every source of toxic exposure we can, we must detoxify our bodies, because as these chemicals accumulate, they alter our metabolism, cause enzyme dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, brain damage, and cancer.
3 Studies Showing Sweating Detoxifies Chemicals

If there is any uncertainty in your mind as to whether sweating safely removes chemicals from the body, take a look at the evidence below…
A groundbreaking 2011 study on sauna therapy found that “Many toxic elements appeared to be preferentially excreted through sweat. Presumably stored in tissues, some toxic elements readily identified in the perspiration of some participants were not found in their serum. Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for elimination of many toxic elements from the human body.”
In a 2012 study published in Scientific World Journal, researchers collected blood, urine, and sweat from 20 individuals and analyzed the samples for parent phthalate compounds and phthalate metabolites using high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. The results found both parent phthalates and their metabolites were excreted in the sweat.
Another study from 2012 tested participants to see if sweating would remove the hormone-distrupting chemical Bisphenol A from their bodies. In 16 of 20 participants, BPA was identified in sweat, even in some individuals with no BPA detected in their serum or urine samples.

Saunas should not be considered a luxury. In today’s world, they are a household necessity.
