Don’t let heavy metals and microplastics weigh YOU down! If you haven’t heard, heavy metals and microplastics are toxic. They have no place in our daily life. Unfortunately, they are being found in things like baby powder, pesticides (also in wine, beer, and mosquito spray) and drinking water. These toxic endocrine disruptors are linked to ovarian cancer and mesothelioma to name a few.
What are Heavy Metals?
Heavy metals are elements like iron, zinc, lead, chromium, arsenic, and mercury. It’s necessary for us to have some of these in order to be healthy. However, some are toxic to living organisms at any level. It’s mind blowing, but the amount of minerals used to make everyday products that we and our families use are making us sick.
What are Microplastics?
Microplastics are pieces of plastics that come from all different sources. They can break off of larger plastic products. Or, they can be in the form of microbeads, which are tiny pieces of polyethylene plastic. Sometimes microbes are added to health and beauty products, like cleansers and toothpaste. These tiny particles keep ending up in the ocean and other bodies of water. We then end up eating them as well!
How to Minimize Exposure to Heavy Metals & Microplastics!
- Buy organic
- Read labels before buying any product
- Pay attention to advisories for mercury levels in fish
- Buy organic beer and wine (the heavy metals found in these products are 100% – 200% higher than what’s found in fish)
- Install a water filtration system in your home.
