Here I will share some tips on how to recognise toxins in your every day life and how to reduce your exposure.
There have been over 144,000 chemicals introduced since the industrial revolution. Not only do they pollute the environment but also have negative effects on well-being, such as, auto-immune diseases, chronic disorders and cancers. Common sources include:
- pesticides in your fresh produce,
- aluminium in deodorant,
- plastics made with BPA like food containers and water bottles,
- beauty products
- and household cleaning products
You can reduce your exposure by ensuring you purchase organic produce where possible, using glass food containers and water bottles, use only natural and organic skincare and make your own household cleaning products with simple ingredients such as water, bicarb soda, lemon, and essential oils like eucalyptus and lemon myrtle.
