I have been gaining knowledge a lot about the term "toxic load", allowing me to learn both great information and very alarming information! Well then what exactly is "toxic load?" There is no word in the dictionary that defines "toxic load" so Ilooked uptoxic and load and this is what Merriam-Webster has to say about the two words. Firstly the meaning of toxic is "containing or beingdangerousmaterial , particularlily when capable of causing death or serious debilitation."
The explanation for load is "the quantity that can be carried at one time by a specified means." So it would seem that "toxic load" is the amount of dangerous material which our bodies can carry at one time. Now we get to the alarming part! In order to assure ahealthy way of life, we need to learn what we can do to minimize the "toxic load" that we digestinto our body through pollutants in the environment and pollutants that we use which expose our bodies to too much "toxic load."
The best step is to increase our toxin recognition level by learning to determine the hidden sources of toxins in food, common everyday household products, skin care products and our surroundings. Read labels closely beforepurchasing any consumer goods and, when in doubt, take the most cautious option.
