The human body becomes toxic (polluted) from both external and internal sources. The most common external pathways of toxicity are from inhalation (smoking, air pollution, dental amalgam fillings, sick buildings), ingestion (chemical residues on food, chemicals in the water, drugs), injection (vaccinations, flu shots, tattoos), absorption (chemicals from synthetic fabrics, paints, plastics, pesticides and chemical fertilizers sprayed on lawns), and irradiation (medical x-rays, nuclear power plants, bomb testing, cell phones and towers, computer monitors and televisions, microwave ovens, and power grid and radio and satellite transmissions).
The internal sources of toxicity are fermentation, purification, and rancidity from undigested foods consumed, and from dehydration, malnutrition, and toxic thoughts and emotions. This internal toxicity can also be caused by effects of external toxins contributing to malnutrition, and inhibition of digestion through damage to the nervous system. the immune system, and enzyme systems.
Breakdown of the immune system is a major symptom of chemical toxicity. Another major symptom is damage to the central nervous system and nervousness. Even after changing bad habits, the body is unable to get rid of the built-up toxins. When changing dietary habits, it is common to feel worse in the beginning. The body is going through a detoxification. Poor health and illness are progressive; it does not occur overnight. Good health and well being is also progressive; it may take weeks, months, or years.
