Poisoning the Unborn…What Are You Going to do About it?

I RARELY take the advice of the government when it comes to food and water safety.  As far as I’m concerned they don’t have a very good track record.   However, this is ONE warning that I think ALL of us need to pay very close attention to.  In fact, I think we need to read between the lines for the sake of our children and our children’s children.


This cancer study was conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH) in conjunction with the President’s Cancer Panel (a little scary that the President has a cancer panel, isn’t it?).  The findings were submitted to the White House in 2009.

Below is an excerpt from page 111 of this cancer study.

It is vitally important to recognize that children are far more susceptible to damage from environmental carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting compounds than adults. To the extent possible, parents and child care providers should choose foods, house and garden products, play spaces, toys, medicines, and medical tests that will minimize children’s exposure to toxics.  Ideally, both mothers and fathers should avoid exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals and known or suspected carcinogens prior to a child’s conception and throughout pregnancy and early life, when risk of damage is greatest.

The single most impactful thing mothers and fathers (and all of the rest of us) can do to “avoid exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals and known or suspected carcinogens” is to avoid municipal tap water AND commercially bottled water.  Water should be your primary ingredient for health and  municipal tap and commercially bottled water are laced with cancer causing chemicals and hormone disruptors that are responsible for most of your toxic exposure.  Sad but true.

Look out unborn!  You’re about to get a huge toxic dose before you take the first bite, drink your first drink or breathe your first breath.  How sad is that?  You CAN do something about it if you’ll just open your eyes, ears and mind and consider the problem.

Every electrical impulse and every chemical reaction that takes place within the human body needs water to function.  The body is 72% water…the brain is 85% water….the blood is 90% water…the body NEEDS healthy water and lots of it!  What it DOESN’T need is more toxins mixed in with the water.

Don’t hold your breath if you’re waiting for your doctor to tell you that your water is the primary source of  toxins.  Your doctor doesn’t care about toxins OR environmental risks and he/she is paid to treat symptoms…period.    Do your own homework.   Take responsibility for your own health.  Water isn’t just water and the future generation is paying the ultimate price for our reckless decisions.

To Infinity and Beyond? The Poison That Lasts (More Than) a Lifetime!


DDT (dichlorodiphenyltchloroethane) is an odorless, colorless and tasteless insecticide that was banned in the U.S. almost 40 years ago.  In fact, it was ultimately banned worldwide by the Stockholm Convention due to its known ability to cause cancer in humans and in wildlife.  Forty years is a long time but the aftermath of DDT still wreaks havoc on our health today.

The CDC recently conducted tests to see if they could identify trace levels of  DDT in study participants.  The results were alarming.  Ninety nine percent of the people tested were positive for DDT at higher than “trace levels”.  DDT obviously leaves behind a long-lasting legacy of harm in humans.

The EPA reports that it can take more than 15 years to break down DDT in “our environment” but how long does it take to break down in the human body? That’s the bigger question.  Toxins like DDT cross the placental barrier to an alarming extent which means that all of those “trace level” toxins pass from one generation to the next.  To infinity and beyond?  Not if I can help it!

There is a lot of science on DDT and its impact on human health.  Here is a short list of confirmed health problems:

  • Cancer: Girls exposed to DDT are 5 times more likely to develop breast cancer in middle age, according to the President’s Cancer Panel.  DDT has also been associated with liver and pancreatic cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies DDT as “possible carcinogenic to humans.”
  • Reproductive Effects: DDT is linked to male infertility, impaired semen quality, miscarriages, early menopause, birth defects, and low birth weight.
  • Endocrine Disruption: DDT’s impact on estrogen has been known for some time. Studies suggest  that DDT can interfere with a mother’s ability to lactate,  elevated risk of testicular cancer, and premature puberty.
  • Neurological effects:  R DDT is linked with changes in thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy which in turn affects fetal brain development.  Documented effects include reduced motor skills and a decrease in verbal, memory and perceptual performance skills among preschool children. People exposed to higher levels of DDT experience serious neurotoxic effects such as tremors and seizures.

What can we do about toxins that are wreaking havoc on our health from one generation to the next?  First and foremost, you MUST be aware of what you’re eating, what you’re drinking and what you’re breathing.  Focus on one without the other is worthless.   If you’re eating only organic foods and you wash it all down with toxic water, your efforts are thwarted.  If you only eat organic foods and you wash it down with the healthiest water you can get your hands on BUT you’re breathing toxic fumes and chemicals on a regular basis, your efforts are thwarted.

It (toxic exposure) needs to stop and it starts with you and me.  Stop adding to the problem by adding to your exposure.   The body can do miraculous things and it has the ability to cleanse itself and mend itself IF you give it what it needs and protect it from further harm.

Be socially responsible.  Leave a GOOD legacy of health behind for generations to come.  Your great great great great great grandchildren will thank you for it!
