Toxic Burden and Your Detoxification Regime
When you were growing up, did you play with the lead from a broken thermometer, breathe gasoline fumes, make lead toy soldiers or live in a house painted with leaded paint? If you're over the age of 42, the answer is probably yes. Anyone born before 1980 is at risk of harboring excess lead in the body, a heavy metal that interferes with metabolic function.
The truth of aging is that health is 20% influenced by your genetics and 80% influenced by your environment. Depending on both factors, you may have some level of toxic lead in your cell's mitochondria, interfering with your energy production and innate healing.
Knowing your levels of lead, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals is a critical part of your anti-aging detoxification regime.
