CHEMICALS IN NEWBORNS AND INFANTS – WHY DETOX

The umbilical chord  is meant to bring nutrients and oxygen to an infant. Nowadays it also brings hundreds of toxic chemicals and poisons along with the nutrients. Between 2007-8,  the Environmental Working Group tested a group of minority infants and found 232 known chemical poisons in their blood.

TYPES OF CHEMICALS
Mercury and PCB were among the most lethal chemicals that were present. The group also found BPA, a petrochemical derived from babies plastic bottles. Perfluiributanoic acid was further uncovered, an ingredient of non-stick cookware. Its a PFC chemical linked to promoting cancer. Synthetic fragrances and detergents were prominently present. Actually 9 out of 10 of the umbilical chords contained various chemicals from rocket fuel, which also tend to hamper brain development. A fire retardant was present which interferes with thyroid functions. The list goes on!

PRIOR STUDY
This was the 11th in a series of studies by The Environmental Working Group which has discovered a total of 404 chemicals so far in human blood. A similar infant study was conducted in 2005. It also isolated industrial chemicals in the umbilical chord of  American infants and found 287 present out of a total of 400 tested. Of the 287, 180 were known to cause cancer in humans and animals.  Furthermore, 208 cause birth defects. More chemicals would have been studied except for the fact that chemical companies are not required by law to reveal how such chemicals can be detected. There are currently about 100,000 industrial chemicals in use and 150,000 registered pharmaceuticals. Take virtually any dozen or more of such chemicals, put them into a compost heap, and you have yourself a super-toxic waste site that kills all of life. The industry does not get it because there is just too much money to be made.

AUTISM, ADHD, and Cancer
Is it any wonder that autism rates in this country have skyrocketed or gone  from 1 in 2500 to 1 in 166 in just a few decades… or that ADHD syndroms in children are epidemic. Why is it that cancer is the number one disease killer of children in America?

SOLUTIONS
What we really need is not federal funding to help put more drugs, chemicals and synthetics into our bodies (the current  healthcare reform proposals) but rather the opposite - a national funding of naturopathic practices, organics, regional detox centers and the subsidizing of FIR or far infrared sauna in literally every home in America.

We also need a paradigm shift away from the chemical, a synthetic understanding of nature introduced in the 17th century.

This is the message of our philosophy of raw-wisdom.
