Toxin Exposure Weakens Your Immune System for Generations

Environmental exposure to pollutants and common household toxins can negatively affect your reproductive, respiratory, nervous, and immune system function...and can be passed on from one generation to another.

We’re basically talking about an immune system injury where one person can be exposed to toxins, pass them along to subsequent generations who then have a weakened defense against infections like the influenza virus, AND they get their own direct exposure to the same toxins, continually adding to toxic body burden and a weakened immune system passed on again and again, as far out as great-grandchildren!

Dioxins + Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Almost every living being has been exposed to dioxins and PCBs, which are mainly produced through industrial processes, including improper municipal waste incineration and burning of trash. They can also be released into the air during natural events, like forest fires and volcanoes.

In addition to direct exposure, dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls find their way into our food system, bio-accumulate as they move up the food chain, and then are eventually consumed by humans who pass the toxins on from generation to generation. Today, our main point of exposure to dioxins and PCBs and comes from eating foods that have been contaminated by these chemicals. Toxins get stored up in fatty tissues as a way of our bodies - and the bodies of the animals we eat - trying to protect us from those toxic chemicals.

Rivers and - because of their use as a coolant in electric transformers - buildings (schools, parks, etc.) are contaminated with PCBs. Even though the Environmental Protection Agency banned its production and use starting in 1978, PCBs are still present in soil and sediment, as well as in products made before 1979…polluting the environment globally and exposing us further from products, landfills, and dumps…which gets into our air and into our soil.

Ready to find out what you can do to mitigate the effects of this exposure and upgrade your immune system? Reach out and I’ll send you the info to a simple challenge we’re starting next month.


*The initial challenge starts November 1, 2023, but we will be running the challenge once or twice each year starting in 2024.
