EPISODE 277: Detox Your Body & Life

Did you know that newborn babies are born with 200+ chemical toxins in their bodies? Or that polar bears often have off-the-charts levels of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) despite living in remote areas? Our water, air and food supplies are filled with toxins that end up in our bodies and can lead to scores of health problems.

  • How there are 80,000 chemicals on earth, 700 in most adult bodies, and 200+ in most infants
