From the Author
Why I wrote The Toxin Solution
For much of the twentieth century, the primary causes of chronic disease were nutritional deficiencies and excesses. We all know about the problems with excessive sugar, nutrient-poor food and unhealthy fat consumption. However, starting about 60 years ago, something fundamental changed. Let's use diabetes as an example of what happened.
When I first started in medical research way back in 1970, diabetes was rare. In clinical practice in the late 1970s, every year I would only see just a few patients with either Type I or Type II diabetes. But now it has become one of the most common diseases seen by doctors every day affecting around 15% of the population. Taking care of people with Type II diabetes has become the most expensive of all diseases accounting for a whopping 14% of healthcare expenditures.
What happened? Toxins.
Almost all the diabetes-inducing toxins are new to nature chemicals created by researchers to provide us many of the benefits and comforts of the modern world. Unfortunately, they had many unexpected side effects. These effects have been ignored or discounted by the industries dependent upon these chemicals.
On the book's website (thetoxinsolution.com) and in the book is a figure showing that thediabetes epidemic correlates closely with the growing presence of toxins in theenvironment, food and even health and beauty aids. Of course, correlation doesnot prove causation--but sure shows where to look. As you can read in TTS, Ishow the primary toxins which are causing diabetes.
The purpose of The Toxin Solution is to help you understand how toxins aredamaging your health, where they come from, how to avoid them and the safestand most effective ways to get them out of your body.
