Male infertility is at an all time worldwide high because ever day personal use items contain "non-toxic" chemicals that are absorbed into the body and disrupt male hormones. Younger and younger couples seek interventions to have a baby because of female and male infertility issues many of which are environmentally-related. These chemicals have helped to create a multi-million dollar fertility industry.
I have been asked many times over the years from pregnant women, "Can I detox now, is there anything I can do or take to protect my baby from environmental toxins?"
My answer is to focus on stabilization so the toxins do not mobilize in the bloodstream. We stabilize with nutrients, minerals and low dose anti-oxidants.
This is an actual photograph of Chongqing, China, where the smog is horrendous. The Chinese are making a huge exodus from the polluted cities, travel agents now sell air pollution travel insurance and everyone wears a mask.
We are all, no matter where we live, exposed to daily pollution through construction sites, car exhaust, gas stations, industries, quarries and even school chalk dust that releases sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and ozone.
Big Pharma has been aggressively pushing statins for the past 15 years. They have been able to dodge bullets from causing elevated liver enzymes, creating mitochondrial dysfunction with a rash of muscle aches and body pains, increasing the risk of diabetes to making users feel generally unwell in less than six weeks.

Your bones are living tissue and they breathe.
You need essential nutrients, water and breath to optimize bone health. People with asthma are at increased risk for bone loss. In a Korean study of 7000 adults, individuals with asthma had significantly lower bone density in the lumbar spine. Both men and women with "airway hyper-responsiveness" were in normal range for total bone density, but - it is clear that asthma is a risk factor for bone loss.
Young people are being diagnosed with Type II diabetes everyday and 1/4 of them have peripheral neuropathy.
What is peripheral neuropathy and why should you care about it?
The Swiss Medical Board took a bold new step by phasing out existing mammography programs and stopping new screening programs.
The seven member board made this controversial recommendation when they realized that there were no obvious benefits of getting mammography versus the harms. It is important to question the validity of medical practices so that we can integrate and use the best standards of care for the consumer.
I believe the issue is complex and further complicated with financial corporate tie-ins from companies who make money from mammography screenings.
