We have, on average, 700 synthetic chemicals in our bodies.
We are constantly exposed to many environmental pollutants, drugs and dietary components. The majority of these chemicals have not been tested for safety in human health. As Kelly Brogran, MD points out, we have an “innocent until proven guilty” approach when it comes to chemicals in pharmaceuticals, food, personal care products, cookware, and other everyday items. Unfortunately, we are starting to understand that not only do these toxicants impact us negatively, but combinations of these toxicants can exacerbate their harmful effects, something referred to as the “cocktail effect”.
