Chemical Toxins

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or freon is the refrigerant in your air conditioner and refrigerator coils. CFCs are suspected of causing the ozone hole above the South Pole. All cancer suf­ferers test positive for CFCs in their cancerous organ! I have preliminary evidence that it is CFCs that attract other pollutants — fiberglass, metals, PCBs-to form a growing tumor instead of allowing their excretion. This would make it a “super car­cinogen.”. How could you detect CFCs leaking in your home? By the time your air conditioner or refrigerator needs recharging, you have been exposed for a long time. We desperately need an inexpensive, in-home test for this unsuspected killer.

Arsenic is used in pesticide. Why would we poison our­selves along with the cockroaches? Is it because we can’t see it happening? Just as we couldn’t see the fiberglass floating in the air? Our diligent scientists have studied the mechanism of arsenic poisoning in great detail. Then why are we allowed to put it on our lawns to be carried into our carpets via shoes?

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), oily compounds with wonderfully useful electrical properties, were originally used in transformers until their inability to break down into less toxic substances in our environment was spotlighted. Banned from use, I find them in most commercial soap and detergents! Is transformer oil being disposed of by selling it to soap makers?

Formaldehyde is used to cure foam. As a result, foam fur­niture, pillows and mattresses give off formaldehyde for about two years after manufacturing. If you sleep with your nose buried in a new foam pillow all night, you are risking major lung problems.

Every cleanser in your house probably has a toxic warning on its label. Every fluid your automobile uses is toxic. Every pesticide, herbicide and fertilizer you put on your lawn is probably toxic. Every paint, varnish, wax, lubricant, bleach and detergent will send you to the hospital if even a small amount is ingested. Why do we keep them around? See Recipes (page 513) for safe, old-fashioned, alternatives.

if you are ill even after zapping, it is toxins still at work. Getting rid of them is a major step toward being well.
