We live in a polluted environment.
Our food, air and water are contaminated with hundreds of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides.
Heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, bismuth, bromine, cadmium, nickel, thallium, tin and uranium. See the for more on these heavy metals, and how one comes into contact with them.
Mercury is one of the worst environmental poisons. It can come from:
(a) leaking amalgam/silver fillings, which are about 50% mercury
(b) residues from volcanic ash
(c) coal burning
(d) heavy fish consumption
(e) from vaccines containing thimerisol (ethyl mercury)
Tragically, millions of children have been inoculated with toxic doses of mercury in vaccines. Many feel this has contributed to a modern day epidemic of hyperactivity and autism related disorders.
