Toxins and pollution facts

Envirnmental pollution and toxins are causing many health risks for mankind. Pollution around our environment is coming from air, water and human wastage. But we are for sure responsible for this situation as we are not seriously concerned to take practical steps towards handling the issues. These facts and statistics would be an eye opener for many of us. And may be it can help us plan to get rid of toxins and pollution around us.

- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 500,000 different chemicals are used today, and that 5,000 new chemical substances are added each year. In addition our bodies are exposed to natural toxins like pollen, dust, animal dander, and smoke.

- Body pollution is at the most toxic levels ever recorded in human history. Sadly, our immunity system can not keep pace and we are falling victim to disease and cancer in greater and greater numbers. Consider that in 1960; only one out of 30 people were diagnosed with cancer. Today it is 1 out of every 5 people. The quality of living due to poor health is deteriorating at an ever faster pace.

- An unbelievable 20% of our adult population has some form of cancer whereas rates as low as 4% or less exist in countries with little medical infrastructure. Of all the world’s developed countries, the US has the highest mortality rates. Heart disease, cancer, neurological disease (Alzheimer’s), diabetes, obesity, hormone imbalance, and organ dysfunction are so commonplace today that people have become desensitized to the reasons why these horrible afflictions exist as they do now. Just 100 years ago, these diseases were rare and not commonplace to the human species.

- In 1989 alone, EPA estimates, in its Toxic Release Inventory National Report, that 1.9 billion pounds of chemical were dumped into our nation's water systems. In that same year, 2.4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the atmosphere; with the total chemical attack on the environment estimated at 5.7 billion pounds.

Today, your water supply is contaminated with mercury, chlorine, estrogen, estrogen mimickers, fluoride, organophosphates and even residual Prozac and pharmaceuticals that cannot be filtered out by water treatment plants. Food now comes from soil stripped of nutrients, filled with artificial fertilizers and pesticides. Animals are now grown in factories with steroids, antibiotics, stress, and cheaper abnormal feed. Air is filled with a host of pollutants and contains 30% less oxygen by content as compared to just 100 years ago. The result is in an environment that the human body has never had to deal with before in its entire history. At a certain point, after years of toxic onslaught, your defense system is unable to keep up and disease is able to take hold.

- The air, food, soil, and environment we exist with are so toxic, polluted, and artificially saturated that the body cannot keep pace with the constant cell repair it must perform on a daily basis. After years of toxicity buildup, the body loses the battle and cancer sets in and flourishes. Modern prescriptions and techniques are reactionary and wait for you to develop a disease before you are treated.

We need to maintain immunity levels and additionally support your immune system to combat the daily ravages your body suffers. And for this purpose we need to detoxify our whole body.

Detoxification process will allow a cleaner personal environment (both inside and out) to be reestablished as a new basis for health. And the basic tool for accomplishing this is knowledge. It won't necessarily be genetics, or money, or social class that determines who is healthy in the 21st Century.

'Natural Sweeteners' - A natural substitute of sweets

Eliminating sugar from our diet is not the solution to the weight gain problem. We can easily replace our sweet needs with man-made, processed, natural sweeteners. With processed sugar, the body has been tricked into feeling satisfied, when in fact, the sweetness is completely deficient in essential vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and enzymes which would normally be present.

What are Natural sweeteners?

According to a definition: 'A sugar substitute is a food additive that duplicates the effect of sugar or corn syrup in taste, but usually has less food energy.'

Now you can buy natural sweeteners 'Erythritol' and 'Xylitol'online. http://www.emeraldforestxylitol.com/
offers highest quality all natural sweeteners and snacks like Gums, Mints, Fruit Sours, and Coffee Shots containing delicious natural sweeteners, flavors, and colors.

Emerald Forest Sugar, Inc. uses 100% erythritol crystals made from sugar. Pharmaceutical-grade xylitol is from non-genetically modified, pesticide-free corn.
More about natural sweeteners:

"Erythritol"
is a natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar, yet has only 5% of sugar’s calories or 0.2 calories per gram. Erythritol is approximately 70% as sweet as cane sugar (sucrose). It does not affect blood sugar or insulin levels

"Xylitol" is a naturally occurring sweetener primarily derived from plant sources and has many surprising benefits. Classified as a low calorie (2.4 calories per gram), low carbohydrate natural sweetener, xylitol is considered beneficial for your teeth and completely safe for diabetics. It has no toxicity and has not been linked to any form of disease.'

Tips to ease your stress/depression

Mostly, whenever we face a physical or mental problem, there is a pharmacological subscription suggested from the doctor. And in most cased, when the problem is related to mind or psychological, only anti-depressants are the first suggestion from the doctor. But we know that the antidepressant medication have many side effects. Moreover it is not the cure for the problem, only a temporary relief.

People are also looking for non-pharmacologic relief of illness, including depression. Unfortunately, the evidence to support the effectiveness of alternative therapies against the disease isn't strong. Alternative or complementary therapies probably won't do much to ease really serious depression, but for mild depression or anxiety, some tips can be helpful.
For any form of mild depression, all of these things can help:

One study released about five years ago, found that exercise could be a major weapon against depression.
"Exercise, at least when performed in a group setting, seems to be at least as effective as standard antidepressant medications in reducing symptoms in patients with major depression," said researcher James Blumenthal, a professor of medical psychology at Duke University.

His team's study found that 10 months of regular, moderate exercise reduced depressive symptoms at a rate equal to that of Zoloft.
Another study, this time by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, found that 30-minute workouts done three to five times a week could cut depressive sy Even less vigorous activities, such as T'ai chi or yoga, may help lower blood pressure and ease stress, Marsh said. "People who exercise also tend to feel that they have more control over their life," she added. That's important, since a persistent feeling of helplessness is a hallmark of depression.

According to Marsh, the science is much less clear when it comes to the effectiveness of supplements and herbal medicines. For example, there's little good data to support the use of either foliate or the B vitamins in warding off the blues.
Perhaps the most talked-about herbal therapy for depression is St. John's wart, but "the evidence that it can help moderate-to-severe depression is very poor,"
Non-pharmacologic interventions such as massage therapy, acupuncture or aromatherapy are great at easing short-term stress, "but the real issue, when it comes to depression, is what the effect is over the long term?
One thing the science does show, however, is that contacts with others -- friends, family, clubs and group activities -- can boost mood and help ease depression.

These tips can improve your mental well being, as well as your physical well being.

I am including here 2 self screening tests, which are free to use, provided by Department of Psychiatry (NYU Medical Center/NYU School of Medicine)

The Online Anxiety Screening Test

The Online Depression Screening Test

KEEP IN MIND: that these preliminary screening tests are for depressive symptoms that do not replace in any way a formal psychiatric evaluation. It is designed to give a preliminary idea about the presence of mild to moderate depressive symptoms that indicate the need for an evaluation by a psychiatrist.

Effects of stress and depression on our lives

Do you think that you are suffering from some kind of stress or depression?

If so, then you should seriously think about the worst thing which can heppen to you and effect the people around you. I have been a depressed person and after realizing the negative effects on my life I chose meditation and during that time of stress, I started teaching. Both worked like miracle to me and today I feel like a new person who is getting most out of its life. Let's see what happens when you are depressed or face stress for long time?

Few days ago, switching from one channel to another at T.V, I came across Oprah’s repeate telecast show.

I love to watch this show whenever I get free time and topic is appealing to me.
Oprah was talking to a good looking guy, inquiring about intentions behind the murder of his wife. And mentally disturbed person, who was sure a worse case of depression, told Oprah that he brutally killed his wife because he was suffering from the feeling of loneliness, nobody was to talk or share with him. And if there was a situation that he could talk with someone, the situation would be different.
According to a report from ‘National Institute of Mental Health’ “Serious depression can destroy family life as well as the life of the ill person.

Symptoms of depression:

It is not necessary that everyone who is depressed or manic experiences every symptom. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many.

Severity of symptoms varies with individuals and also varies over time.DepressionPersistent sad, anxious, or "empty" moodFeelings of hopelessness, pessimismFeelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessnessLoss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sexDecreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down"Difficulty concentrating, remembering, making decisionsInsomnia, early-morning awakening, or oversleepingAppetite and/or weight loss or overeating and weight gainThoughts of death or suicide; suicide attemptsRestlessness, irritabilityPersistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic painManiaAbnormal or excessive elationUnusual irritabilityDecreased need for sleepGrandiose notionsIncreased talkingRacing thoughtsIncreased sexual desireMarkedly increased energyPoor judgmentInappropriate social behavior.

Most people with a depressive illness do not seek treatment; although the great majority evens those whose depression is extremely severe can be helped. Thanks to years of fruitful research, there are now medications and psychosocial therapies such as cognitive/behavioral, "talk" or interpersonal that eases the pain of depression.Unfortunately, many people do not recognize that depression is a treatable illness.If you feel that you or someone you care about is one of the many undiagnosed depressed persons, these in formations may help you take the steps that may save your own or someone else's life.In one of my articles, I have mentioned benefits of meditation, and with proud I can say that I have cured my depression by keeping me busy and regular practice of meditation. Keeping me busy was not a solution, unless meditation was there.

Dear readers! Did you come across to some stories, where depression or stress was cured by any other way? Why don’t we share with each other our experiences, as our discussion may save many families and lives?
