20 deadly ways chemicals are used to spray humans like roaches
20 ways deadly chemicals are used to spray humans like roaches
By Adam Riva, Staff Writer
(Healingtalks) Deadly chemicals released by aerosols, sprays or means of spreading creams, soaps, cleansers, and so on, using so-called ‘body care products” can often cause us monumental harm. It might sound like an exaggeration, but the truth is that the chemical harm can actually extend to our bodies as a whole, negatively impacting our respiratory, circulatory/cardiovascular and neurological systems. A powerful example involves the fact that most breast cancers (an ailment which has become epidemic) occur in the upper and outer quadrant of the breast, closest to the lymph nodes that absorb chemicals from perspirants. From synthetic fragrances to pesticides, our bodies and our environment are being bombarded by dangerous chemicals, introduced with almost negligible FDA restrictions or testing. This insanity has come about through a concerted attempt to advance the financial profits of chemical companies and at the expense of the public’s health.
What can the average persons do?
We all can learn to avoid the most noxious of products being either breathed in or absorbed through our skins. We can thus avoid synthetic cleansers, cosmetics, and similar impacting chemical products. We can go a step further by installing air purifier with a HEPA filter in our homes and places of work. Overall, there are so many major sources and forms of airborne and skin touching chemical pollution to be highly concerned about. The following is a list of some of the most egregious, namely, 20 different ways in which modern airborne or skin applied chemicals can cause toxic effects on us:
1. GeoEngineering (Chemtrails)
Chemtrails not only blot out the sun. They rob us of Vitamin D3. Chemtrails are brought to the ground by precipitation and further pollute our crops, water supply, and environment with heavy metals. The heavy metals cause a variety of human and animal degenerative neurological diseases.
Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other biocides are designed to kill living organisms. Even at low-level exposure, pesticides adversely affect our own living cells, especially those of our nervous system, leading to serious neurological and behavioral ailments. As of 2007, the US uses over 1 billion tons of pesticides each year. The average American indirectly consumes approximately 1 gallon of pesticides annually, thus the need to periodically detoxify.
3. Deodorants, Perfumes, & Colognes
Synthetic fragrances do not “freshen” anything. At best, they contain antibacterial properties. In most cases, they are chemical cocktails that mask our consciousness of odors. Whether applied directly to the skin or inhaled, these noxious chemicals will bio-accumulate with the potential to cause serious health problems.
4. Cleaning Products
Bleaching agents, antibacterial sprays, window cleaners, soaps, detergents, leather polish, stain removers, and similar cleaning products, unless 100% natural, are often lethal in large dosages and carcinogenic in smaller bio-accumulative dosages.
5. Showering in “Treated” City Water
City waters often containing fluoride, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, illicit narcotics, pesticides, fertilizers, chlorine and other “treatment” chemicals, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs). A hot shower can quickly turn an ordinary bathroom into a toxic gas chamber. Not only can you be made to absorb numerous toxins through your skin, but you also breathe in the water vapor.
6. Industrial Pollution
Smokestacks are among the heaviest, most grave and carcinogenic contributors to our planet’s overall air pollution.
Sunscreens block long wave UVA and short wave UVB rays, which we have been told are linked to cancer. The truth is that UVA and UVB rays only lead to cancer in the presence of certain nutritional deficiencies. Most sunscreens contain oxybenzone which has been linked hormone disruption, allergies, and cell damage. When sunlight reacts with oxybenzone, this chemical produces free radicals that damage DNA. Oxybenzone also is a penetration enhancer, which means it helps other chemicals more readily penetrate the skin.
8. Insect Repellents
The most ubiquitous insect repellent ingredient DEET, also known by the chemical name N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide, is a neurotoxin. Additionally, many mosquito populations have developed a resistance to DEET, rendering it ineffective.
9. Hand “Sanitizers”
Antibacterial hand “sanitizers” merely kill all bacteria residing on your hands; ie: the good germs and the bad. They usually contain chemicals that congeal, color, and scent the liquid. They also contains harsh alcohols.
10. Hair Styling Spray
The chemicals used in most hair sprays are low-grade glues in aerosol form. By spraying these mists so close to our heads, we can inevitably cause skin damage, as well as breathe in these toxins.
11. Airplane & Automobile Exhaust
Rocket fuel has been found in alarming levels in every water supply tested in America. It has also been found in mother’s breast milk, even those who consume only organic food.
12. Asthma Inhalers
Most over-the-counter asthma inhalers are epinephrine sprays which not only do nothing to address the causality of the asthma (usually food related), but also emit chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that deplete the Earth’s ozone layer. Prescription inhalers, known as albuterol inhalers, Long term use of inhalers leads to respiratory illness.
13. Air “Fresheners” and Burning Candles
Synthetic fragrances do not “freshen” anything. At best, they contain antibacterial properties, but in most cases they are simply chemical cocktails that mask odors. Candles are often made of paraffin wax made from petroleum, coal, or oil shale and are dispersed into the air you breathe upon burning.
14. Spray Paint
Spray paint is obviously not something we want to breathe in directly. Even after weeks of curing, these paints can continue to off-gas or let out fumes in our homes. After a period of months, they can still remain toxic to touch.
15. Lawn Fertilizers
Superphosphate chemical fertilizers are harmful to humans in any skin exposures. Some, unaware of this fact, love to barefoot walk on chemically treated lawns and/or let their children play on our chemically fertilized grounds.
16. Magnesium Chloride Dirt Road Dust Control
In rural America, many cities rely on private companies that spray a magnesium chloride solution onto unpaved back roads to control dust from being stirred by cars. Trucks with large tanks dump the solution specifically in front of houses to tame the dust problem, typically every few weeks. It helps, but does not control the dust entirely. While magnesium chloride can have health benefits if taken orally, no one has investigated the respiratory effects of breathing this chemical. There is the potential for an accumulation of magnesium in the soil and water table and which can potentially lead to hypermagnesemia, or magnesium toxicity.
Although fireworks displays are beautiful, mesmerizing, and celebratory, they can, nevertheless, create massive plumes of smoke. Such smoke tends to contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals which can both be breathed in and can fall to the ground in the form of acid rain, thereby polluting our crops and water systems.
18. Breath “Fresheners”
Breath “fresheners” are typically alcohol mixed with chemicals that mimic minty or fruity flavors. In fact, they disrupt the pH in your mouth and the delicate balance of friendly flora in your mouth and esophagus which begin the digestive process. Also, your mouth has the highest absorption rate in the body (over 90%). Through a sublingual artery, those chemicals thus enter directly and massively into the user’s bloodstream.
19. Spray-On Tans
Spray-on tans are deceiving. They fool us into thinking those individuals have received a healthy tan, but the benefits are only skin-deep. These chemicals dye the skin to the desired tone. They subject the individual to a massively toxic chemical bath, which then adversely affects the nervous system.
Each time you pump gas into your vehicle, you touch handles and buttons that contain gas residue. It is also difficult to avoid breathing in the gas fumes which can, overtime, add to respiratory and neurological harms.
