World Chemical Detox Day is a day to think about your chemical footprint.
It's time we the people - everyone on the planet - got informed about chemical pollution, chemicals in the supermarkets, chemicals in our food and water.
Do we realise - or care - about the many toxic products we accept without thinking how they contribute to the global toxic waste problem. Do we realise we all contribute to environmental pollution on a daily basis.
The chemical companies won't like the idea of a Chemical Detox Day - but then, they do have a lot of environmental damage, cancer and disease to answer for.

How does one fight cancer while in the bathroom? First step is to BE AWARE that over 4000 toxic chemicals are lurking in the average bathroom - from cosmetics, toiletries, tap water and haircare products.
Fact is the average 'toxic' bathroom is the most overlooked environmental source of cancer causing chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis.
Anything you do in your life and around your home to reduce exposure to chemicals is going to help you reduce the risk of cancer.
If you are feeling in any way unwell, feeling tired, lethargic, have sleep problems, skin problems, dandruff,
Detox Your Bathroom - Skin Cancer Therapy
In fact your bathroom exposes you to over 90% of the chemicals most of us absorb into our bodies. It's a fact.
The number #1 enemy is tap water additives in your shower, followed closely by the chemical compounds that make up your toiletries, hair and skin care products. Tap water can contain up to 900 or so chemicals, usually comprised of chlorine compounds, synthetic fluoride, and 100's of pollutants and additives.
Now imagine your skin being exposed to a dilute chemical solution called tap water every day. It becomes saturated with a daily dose of pollutants. It's little wonder that skin cancer rates are soaring.
Vast amounts of toxic and carcinogenic substances found in our environment are stored in fat cells. Because the body uses fat to hold toxins, thereby protecting delicate tissues and organs, we often find it hard to lose weight. The body even will make fat cells to store toxins when needed.
In other words, your daily shower could be making you fat!
When you add the chemicals found in soaps, shampoo, lotions and creams and cleansers and them mix them with chemicals in tap water you end up with a toxic mix of chemicals that are a danger to human life.
Though some scientists would say the amounts are only small, the danger lies in persistent daily exposure - and therefore the higher risk of cancer and toxic related illnesses.
According to TheDetoxGuru, scientists have never researched the side effects of the bathroom 'chemical cocktail.'
- cancer, obesity
- premature aging
- wrinkles, hair-loss
- ADHD in children
- asthma, lung conditions
- skin conditions, and more
- allergies, immune system diseases

However, we live in the day and age when even our drinking water is dangerous. There are so many chemicals in our drinking water that we are not even aware of. Therefore, it is always advisable to drink alkaline water.
The foundation of pH Balance is proper nutrition and ionized alkaline drinking water. Because 75% of the body weight consists of water, it is important to look at what type of water will benefit you the most. Ionized alkaline water can be extremely beneficial for the human body. Drinking plenty of ionized or alkaline water daily is one of the wisest steps you can take in order to maintain good health. Alkaline, ionized water acts as a powerful and natural antioxidant.
Alkaline ionized water first came to notice in Japan. Alkaline water was initially used in agriculture on plants and animals. Eventually, experiments were conducted by medical professionals on the human body and when these experiments concluded, Japanese doctors inferred that ionic, structured alkaline water was the healthiest form of water for the human body, and that it alleviated many symptoms of adult diseases.
Alkaline water along with an alkaline diet is the call of today’s health experts. Proper hydration through alkaline water plays a critical role in the upkeep of your health. Vibrant health and energy begins with proper pH Balance achieved through drinking ionized alkaline drinking water. When beginning any plan to get your pH back to a balanced state, remember this - it all starts with drinking good water! Your body contains 75% (or more) water. The more alkaline water you drink, the faster you'll see the results.

Well instead of just ranting and raving and making fools of themselves, why don't those smart boys simply prove that detoxing doesn't work. That shouldn't be too hard for those well educated lab certified geniuses.
Surely, all they need do is prove to the world that detoxing is a myth.
A simple double-blind study would settle it once and for all. What are they waiting for?
Why haven't they done this already, instead of jumping up and down trying to get attention?
Perhaps its because they can't prove it.
Just the same as they can't tell you where all those food additives go. They don't know. They aren't chemical residue experts. They just have theories based on observation. And we all have observations..
If I personally feel better after a detox, then that's my observation. I don't need a scientist telling me his theory as to why I feel better, or that all I need is plenty of chlorinated tap water to help me stay healthy. Are these guys insane???
see .... 'Tap water rehydrates the body and a good's night sleep will leave people refreshed, the scientists said.' http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4576574.stm
These scientists can't tell you how many chemicals are absorbed by any individual on any given day, and they can't tell you how many chemicals are excreted by that person during a day. Pretty well, they can't prove much at all. How many chemicals go in, and how many come out, is anyone's guess.
Scientists have theories, which make them sound almost important.
In fact I'll put up a $11,250 challenge to any scientist who can prove, in a laboratory, under scientific conditions, that a liver detox doesn't cleanse the liver!
I know they simply don't have the technology nor the equipment to measure where and how 30,000 different chemicals in the body are processed for elimination. Hell, they don't even know what these chemicals are doing to us!
But they have assured us that cancer rates are soaring, and that they are still hoping to find a cure one day - and that their new drugs are 'very promising.'
So just exactly how do these new cancer drugs fight the impact of 3,000 different chemicals that are stored somewhere in nearly every person?
Truth is I know the money is safe. They can't prove that a detox isn't making you feel better.
They are probably down at McDonald's as we speak, wondering how all those additives and preservatives will ever leave their colons.
When it comes to 'natural' health conversation, remember never ask a scientist eating a burger!
Because as fast as chemicals and wastes are eliminated, they are likely still coming in at the very same time. While your liver may be detoxing, your skin can be absorbing chemicals from your daily beauty products, your daily shower and even your sunscreen lotions.
Because of the increasing number of poisons in the environment, such as polluted air, contamination of water supplies and chemical cleansers, the liver has to work harder and harder to detoxify the poisons. It is the organ most directly strained by pollution and environmental damage. Your skin however takes the brunt of the most aggressive chemicals you'll be exposed to virtually every day - your tap water.
Yep chlorine and fluoride are absorbed in massive quantities every time you shower. It's a constant daily ritual that dumps free-radicals and toxins directly into your skin, into your bloodstream and makes it harder for your detox to achieve long lasting results.

Considering a detox anytime soon. Feeling guilty about an overdose of rich, fatty sugary food?
The best place to start is usually with a colon cleanse, because without a clean colon the body cannot eliminate the toxins from the other tissues and organs.
The colon is the bodies first defense for toxic substances and once it becomes damaged, the rest of the body can suffer.
If you follow some basic rules, you'll discover a healthier, fresher and younger version of yourself, as you eliminate unwanted waste and toxins form your body.
Any toxic overload can endanger our health. According to homeopathic, naturopathic, ayurvedic and traditional chinese medicine, toxicity is the source of all illness. Western medicine has identified the connection between many toxic substances and certain diseases and it is just beginning to really understand the overall connection between toxicity and health.
What is a detox? Are there any side affects?
Does a detox require a special diet or suppliments?
First things first, you'll need to figure out what you are trying to achieve with a detox.
We recommend you do your research, ask a health professional, and don't expect detox miracles and amazing results in record time.Detox, short for detoxification, is the removal of potentially toxic substances from the body. Although detox is primarily thought of as a treatment for alcohol or drug dependence, the term is also used to refer to diets, herbs, and other methods of removing chemicals and unwanted wastes from the body.
Every day each of us takes in around 1000 toxins and chemicals - in what you eat, drink, touch, and breathe in.
Any substance that is brought into our bodies, either natural or artificial, has to be either absorbed by our bodies or eliminated, or it will become toxic in our system.
Excess food gets turned into fat and excess toxins get stored in our body's fat keeping them out of the blood stream and from affecting more vital tissues. An overweight condition almost always corresponds to a toxic condition in the body.
