When toxins damage your enzymes, they prevent the production of hemoglobin in your blood, which can accelerate aging. It also can lead to the failure of energy production and lower your protection against oxidated stress.
Failure of these normal body functions increases your risk of diseases like: cancer
Did you know?
Right now, you most likely have at least 700 chemical contaminants in your body that are not supposed to be there. This is truly a scary thought!
These chemicals are a result of the chemical boom in our modern society. The human race is producing approximately 250 billion tons of up to 150 000 different man-made chemical substances every year and many of these harmful chemicals find their way into our bodies through pollution, and other exposure causing toxin build-up in the body.
Automobile workshop workers are a class of labourers prone to chemical toxicity due to their routine works such as motor vehicle assembly, spray painting, burning of petrol, welding, brazing, and repairing of radiators ranging in size from small engines to lightweight vehicles.
Does your occupation expose you to possible toxins?
Are you employed in any of the following professions? Then you may be exposed to chemicals and toxins which may cause toxin build up in your body..
The aerospace industry frequently works with beryllium, because it is a low-density metal. However, if not properly handled, beryllium exposure puts workers at risk: Research has found that beryllium dust may cause fatal lung cancer and other lung diseases.
The construction industry works with many materials known to be harmful if inhaled or ingested. Construction workers may be exposed to silica dust, asbestos and a wide range of chemical fumes, all of which can cause illness.
The CDC estimates that industry employees who work with natural and artificial flavorings in food can be exposed to up to one thousand disease-causing chemicals. Among the most common is diacetyl, the buttery flavoring found in microwave popcorn, which causes an irreversible lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans, known as “popcorn lung.”
Miners may be exposed to hundreds of carcinogens or other toxic substances, depending on what they mine. Often, miners become ill because they inadvertently inhaled the minerals as dust particles. Asbestos miners are at risk for mesothelioma, while coal miners are at risk for black lung disease. Other mining workers may be exposed to silica, which is linked to silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other ailments.
Welders may be exposed to dangerous metallic substances and fumes caused during the melting of metal—most commonly manganese, which can cause tremor-like symptoms associated with Parkinson’s.
Here’s a partial list of those in occupations possibly at risk due to toxic exposure:
Transportation industry (especially those carrying hazardous materials)
Are you safe in the beauty, hair or nail industry?
A report released by activist group Women’s Voices For The Earth, entitled ‘Beauty and its Beast: Unmasking the Impact of Toxic Chemicals on Salon Workers’ suggests chemical exposure from working with beauty and hair products can lead to immune and neurological conditions, and even cancer.
It also found that people working with beautyand hair products were four times more likely to develop idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a fatal chronic lung disease.
Impaired lung function
Repeated exposure to toxins in nail products was also found to be a significant risk factor for health issues, with manicurists working with artificial nails shown to increase their risk of exacerbating asthma by three-fold.
Gas emissions are harmful because they also contribute to respiratory disease from smog and air pollution.
Do you suffer from:
• Chronic digestive issues
• Anxiety and depression
• Skin issues
• Muscle/joint aches and pains
• Cravings / Blood sugar imbalances
• Bad breath/body odour/foul-smelling stool
• Increased belly fat
• Fluid retention/congestion
• Brain fog
• Chronic headaches
• Menstrual issues/PMS
• Dark circles under eyes
You could be suffering from toxin overload.
More causes of toxic build up
• Eating non-organic produce, processed foods or foods exposed to high levels of glycophosate and other dangerous pesticides
• Chemicals in medication
• Excessive use of alcohol
Improves kidney function by filtering out undigested toxins and drugs
Lower cholesterol levels
Helps prevent diarrhoea
Carbon-rich materials such as wood are burnt at very high temperatures to obtain charcoal (a nearly pure form of carbon). Once the charcoal is obtained, it is passed through a variety of chemical processes in order to “activate” it. This includes treatment with oxygen, steam, certain acids, and carbon dioxide among other chemicals.
The activation process removes any impurities and produces fine black porous granules. It also creates numerous holes and crevices on charcoal particles. Thus, the overall surface area tremendously increases (approximately 1000m2 per gram). The unique voluminous and porous structure of activated charcoal makes it the most suitable candidate for surface binding (adsorption).
Due to the excellent adsorbent nature, activated charcoal can trap many toxins and chemical molecules. Other than the physical adsorption phenomenon, the porous structure of activated charcoal is also helpful because of its negative electrical charge. It pulls positively charged toxins and gases. These molecules are then trapped inside the intricate meshwork of crevices and holes in the activated charcoal.
Hence, the absorption of toxins into the bloodstream is prevented. Moreover, the activated charcoal is not absorbed by human body, so it is excreted from the body along with the adsorbed toxins on its surface.

What is activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a black, odourless, flavourless powder that has been used since ancient times to treat various ailments. Today, it is used to treat drug overdoses, an emergency anti-poison remedy and for natural detox. Some used to help filter water and even prevent hangovers.
How does activated charcoal work?
Activating charcoal is made when charcoal is treated at high temperatures which causes it to develop microscopic holes, which increase its surface area. It doesn’t get absorbed by your gut, which means that when it reaches your gut it is in its unchanged form. The charcoal’s porous texture has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases. When liquids or gases pass through this activated charcoal, they bind to it through a process known as adsorption. These toxins and chemicals get trapped in your gut and eliminated through stool instead of being absorbed into your body.
