(NaturalNews) That is a statement that should not shock anyone. Between chlorine and fluoride, pesticides and herbicides, our bodies are floating in poisons, and heavy metals are no exception. Some heavy metals are beneficial except when we manage to accumulate too much, in which case they can cause problems. Other heavy metals have absolutely zero known benefits and can cause serious illnesses. Four of the worst offenders are arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium. Due to the industrialization of America, these toxic heavy metals are abundant in our food, air and water. Why are we inundated with these poisons that are causing such serious damage to our minds and bodies?

We don't have to look far to see heavy metal's influence. They are found in construction material, cosmetics and personal care products and water, as well as some medicines, processed foods, fuel and appliances.

There are over 20 known heavy metal toxins that can impact our health. Accumulation of these metals can lead to a decline in mental, cognitive and physical health. We can try to avoid heavy metals by avoiding mercury silver dental amalgams and fish such as shark, swordfish and tuna. We can choose organic food over conventional food, and we can buy naturally based cleaning and cosmetic products over chemically based ones. Use of a high quality filtration system helps to get heavy metals out of our drinking water. Not all vaccines are free of mercury based preservatives so educate yourself. Be cautious of where you choose to live; its smart to avoid being too close to industrial sites.

Food to help flush toxins from our bodies

The good news is that our bodies are designed to flush toxins and heavy metals. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, immune booster and detoxifier, occurring naturally in the cells of our bodies. Glatathione, or lack thereof, can be a precursor for one's inability to effectively excrete mercury, aluminum and pesticides from the body.

Glutathione is synthesized from three amino acids: Cystein, glutamate and glycine. Raw fruits and vegetables are abundant in glutamate and glycine. Where do we get the third amino acid to complete this powerful antioxidant? Cystein is found in eggs, meat, red peppers, garlic, onions, Brussels sprouts, oats, milk, whey protein and wheat germ. We can now see the importance of eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and proteins. When we honor our bodies, our bodies honor us back.

What else can we do to honor our bodies and help to detoxify the limitless list of toxins that surround us? GREEN FOODS! Make sure your diet is rich in AT LEAST one of the following green foods at all times: barley greens, wheat grass, kale, spinach, spirulina, alfalfa, swiss chard, arugula, broccoli sprouts and chlorophyll. Green foods help to rid the body of harmful toxins from smog, heavy metals, herbicides, cleaning products and pesticides.

Omega 3 oils found in hemp, olive and flax seed oil as well as avocados and olive oil can help absorb toxins and eliminate them from the body.

Young children are more susceptible to toxic exposures. In a study spearheaded by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies born in 2004 in U.S. hospitals. It is important to introduce our children to healing foods early in life. So use your purchasing power with detoxing in mind.
