Toxins accelerate the rate of loss of telomere length. This shortens our longevity. Toxins are part of everyone’s life. They are in the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the personal care products we use and the clothes we wear. There are many books written about toxins, the effects on our health and the methods of detoxification. We should be cognizant of what we eat, drink and the personal care products that we put on our skin.
Many foods and personal care products contain antibiotics, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, pesticides, herbicides, animal growth hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMO), and/or animals fed GMOs (corn, soy, vegetable oils).
Read labels and know what you are eating or drinking.
