(NewsTarget) During the past 20 years there has been a significant increase in weight gain and obesity in the United States.  In most developed countries, current estimates suggest that women, in particular, are gaining weight on an average of 450g per year despite the plethora of low fat, no fat products and multitude diets and weight loss gadgets.  Could it be that our modern day, chemical-laden lives are making us fat?

 

Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton suggests the root cause of all weight gain is directly related to our own natural weight control system being overloaded and poisoned with toxic chemicals that we encounter through our skin care, food, cleaning products and general environment. In her book, The Detox Diet –Eliminate Chemical Calories and Enhance Your Natural Slimming System, Dr Baillie-Hamilton explores the link between the current fat epidemic and toxic synthetic chemicals.

 

Toxic synthetic chemicals are highly fat soluble therefore when the body is exposed to these substances it then gets busy creating fat tissue as a storehouse for those toxins that cannot be processed and eliminated from the body.

 

A group of insecticides and herbicides used in the growing of food, cosmetic, and medicinal ingredients, known as Carbamates, are also used as growth promoters in battery-farm situations because they slow down the metabolic rate. So, the same synthetic chemicals used on our fruit and vegetables are used to fatten livestock! Carbamates are also used in medicine to promote weight gain in humans.

 

As the population gets fatter and fatter, not through their own lack of effort, they exercise and diet in vain so long as they continue to consume chemical calories.  Toxic chemicals, even in small amounts, have the ability to directly disrupt hormones. Catecholamines, the body's slimming hormones, also come under chemical attack by way of toxic chemicals interfering with the metabolic process which then inhibits the body's own natural slimming systems. Dr Baillie-Hamilton, in summary, suggests that all products that contain toxic chemicals; food, skin care, cosmetics and household, be replaced with organic products. Be certain to look for the Certified logo. Just because a label claims to be organic doesn't necessarily mean it is organic. In chemistry, the term 'organic' simply means it contains a carbon atom! Plastics, petrol, fizzy drinks… they all have carbon atoms! Seek out and support certified organic products that hold 'organic integrity' look for the logo, these are the companies that are seriously passionate and dedicated to better health for you and the planet.
