That is a question that I never gave much thought until my 17 year old son was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, a rare blood disease, that was unheard of 50 years ago. Why? Well, I started investigating and what I found out was quite astonishing. First of all, toxins exist all around us. After WWII, they didn't really know what to do with all the chemical warfare, so it ended up in agriculture and industry which means the air we breathe is toxic. Furthermore, the top soil used to plant crops has been saturated with pesticides and herbicides to the point that our ecosystem and the microorganisms that should exist have been virtually destroyed. Since the microorganisms play a vital role in providing nutrients to our plants and vegetables, we are obviously not getting the nutrients we need from our food. In fact, studies show that one would have to eat 43 bowls of spinach today to get the equivalent of the nutrients in one bowl of spinach about 50 years ago. So, even if we ate all the servings of vegetables and fruit recommended (and who really does?) we still wouldn't get all the nutrients our bodies need to function correctly. To make matters worse, cows and chickens in the US are being shot up with hormones and antibiotics, which unfortunately, end up in our bodies. So, what can we do? It's not really a question of what we can do . It's a matter of what we must do to cleanse our cells of toxins and feed our body the nutrients it needs so that we can live a healthy, quality life.
