Detoxify Defined with Green Smoothie Girl

We live in a toxic world. Luckily, we have organs of elimination, that help you detoxify every day.

But what happens when they can’t keep up? When our liver, kidneys, or the blood aren’t filtering fast enough?

The FDA has approved 84,000 chemicals for use in our environment and food without testing for long-term disease risk for those breathing, drinking, and eating them.
It’s no wonder we’ve gone from 1 in 200 getting cancer just a few generations ago, to 1 in 2 now, for men. (And 1 in 2.4 for women.) Your grandparents did not face these challenges!

Imagine a Model T motoring through the Dust Bowl in the 1930’s—this is a time when there was so much particulate in the air in 1936, that babies and old people were literally dying of dust inhalation. Now imagine that same car if you never changed the air filter—ever. While the danger has changed format, this isn't all too different from what we are currently exposed to.

You don’t want to get caught in a situation where your “filters” are unable to keep up with the cleanup required to deal with:

  • pesticides and preservatives in our foods
  • chemicals in our cosmetics and personal care products
  • fluoride, plastics, chlorine, and drug residuals in our water supply

Medical research throughout history has a thing or two to teach us about how your body detoxifies, how it may be struggling, and how you can resolve the issues:
