Toxin exposure is often misunderstood in the health and fitness world.
From back alley ‘natural health’ services to legitimate treatments in Harley street London, we have it all available.
I have some personal experience with toxins due to some years back I was exposed to some industrial chemicals and had to partake in a heavy metal detox which was an interesting experience!
What many tend to forget is that certain foods give you incremental exposure to pesticides, fungicides and rodenticides. Some of which can be detrimental to our health long term.
There is now some evidence that makes a connection between pesticide exposure and Alzheimer’s disease. All due to the neurotoxic and neuropathological mechanisms induced by pesticides.
What can we do about it?
The first thing we can do is start thinking about where we are buying our food from, do the homework necessary (not much needed) on where exactly it is coming from.
For those of us in the UK, we’re lucky in that our food standards and farms are some of the best in the world but that doesn’t mean it’s all plain sailing.
I’m talking about whole foods coming straight from farms being the easy choice, not the processed or foreign foods that could have issues.
As always, voting with your wallet will improve food quality across the board and could in turn, possibly improve your brain health long term.
