The important thing to understand is that, for most people, living in the world means you're going to end up with toxins in your body. That's a given; there's no getting around it. But how you deal with those toxins is entirely up to you.

The Baseline of Health Foundation®, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free natural health information online, announced a special warning to its worldwide reader base about the new dangers of fire resistant chemicals. The warning is based on the results of a new study published in "Environmental Science & Technology" and a second study out of UC Berkeley and Duke University. Both studies confirmed that the potentially hazardous chemicals from couches and other products made their way into dust, one showed that it pervaded 13 of 16 homes tested. Both studies turned up substances that become toxins in the body after being inhaled or ingested. Jon reminded readers in his special report that these toxins are linked to cancer, changes in DNA, hormone disruption, lowered IQ, decreased fertility, hyperactivity, and other serious health issues.

The Baseline of Health Foundation receives hundreds of requests each month about how to avoid toxins and chemicals or what to do if you’ve already been exposed to them. It found that most consumers are concerned about cancer and looking for ways to avoid harmful substances such as PBDEs and human carcinogens. Jon Barron, the foundation’s director and health researcher, gave further understanding to this growing concern in his special report on toxic flame retardants. Barron states, “The problem, as the studies showed, is not so much that the toxic chemicals are in the upholstered furniture; it's that they don't stay there. As we have known for some time, they migrate into house dust. Humans and pets then ingest this dust, steadily accumulating these toxins in their bodies until they severely compromise their health. Ingestion of contaminated dust can lead to almost 100-fold higher exposure than average for a toddler.”

The goal of the Foundation’s warning is largely to remind consumers that you can eat a perfect diet, drink the cleanest water, and live in an area with clean air, but exposure to toxins is inescapable in today’s world. Jon Barron advocates detoxing as one of the best methods to reduce the toxic load in the body. However, Barron warns that colon cleansing, which is what most people think of when they hear the word “detoxing,” is not enough.

“Colon cleansing is quite the rage now, with colon-cleansing products on store shelves and on the Internet. However, colon cleansing is not the end of detoxing--it's merely the first step. Colon cleansing is required to clean out the elimination channels so that toxins released from the 'other forms' of detoxification have a clear path out of the body. But the major work when doing a body cleanse, the dramatic improvements in health that most people are looking for, come more from those other detoxes than from colon cleansing,” states Barron in his report’s conclusion.

Barron then proceeds to discuss the various other cleansing methods that consumers should consider that can have profound effects for detoxing toxins from all tissue and organs in the body, beyond just the colon. These detoxes include the liver detox and gallbladder cleanse, the kidney flush, the blood cleanse, and a heavy metal detox. Barron explains how each works and gives resources on how anyone can perform these detoxes from their own home. He also reminds readers that one of the biggest problems in dealing with the toxicity associated with 100,000 untested industrial chemicals floating about in the environment is that it's almost impossible to tell how these chemicals are mixing together to create a number of toxic combinations that could be harmful in the body -- far beyond what might be seen from any individual toxin.

“The important thing to understand is that, for most people, living in the world means you're going to end up with toxins in your body. That's a given; there's no getting around it. But how you deal with those toxins is entirely up to you,” states Barron.
