Our bodies are naturally adapted to filter out poisons, prevent them from doing harm and eliminate them from the body. Problems arise when large quantities of toxins are consistently introduced over a length of time. In addition, environmental poisons increasingly impact on our bodies. These toxins include all the chemicals used in growing and manufacturing food. Smog and air pollution, synthetic food additives, artificial sweeteners and water impurities all add to the toxic load.
