Environmental toxins are emerging causes of several illnesses in the modern society. This includes exposure to heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic, BPA which is seen in plastics, air and water pollution and household pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene. Our foods are not safe either. Due to modern agricultural practices, we eat foods that are laden with pesticides and herbicides that can affect our hormones and may ultimately lead to cancer. Some lifestyle choices like smoking and alcoholic drinking have been proven to add insult in our already sick body.
Detoxification is more important than ever. It is a process in which the body mainly the liver, rid the system of toxin, or process harmful substances into safe ones and facilitates its exit via kidneys, colon, lungs and skin.
Detoxifying agents include megadose of vitamin C, glutathione, alpha-Lipoic acid and N-acetylcysteine.
