Not only the Ocean harbor’s Plastic So Do Our Bodies 💦

 

I read this article in the Australian Courier Mail newspaper online this morning (10/25/2018) . Everyone should read this as it is quite enlightening and maybe the answer to some the diseases like cancer that affects all of us whether be a relative, friend or acquaintances. Also it could make you think about the choices we make about what we consume, wear, walk and sleep on.

I have copied this article word for word from the newspaper, as I don’t want to be misquoted or called an alarmist in any way as serious research has been done on this matter.

 

Proof of Plastic Particles in our body

Human bodies are becoming polluted with plastic. Scientists have confirmed for the first time. Tiny pieces were found in samples from every participant in an experiment that tried to estimate how much plastic we eat and drink every day.

Until now most research has focused on the natural world, but the new study shows that humans are also consuming plastic, with some pieces potentially lodging in our bodies.

Researchers suggested sources could include the eating of fish or drinking of water from plastic bottles.

Campaigners said the scale of the plastic crisis meant it was “impossible” for people to avoid eating, drinking and breathing in plastic – with potentially harmful effects. These include the risk of bacterial infections, introducing harmful chemicals to the body. Irritating the gut lining and affecting immune responses.

Lead researcher Dr Philipp Schwabl said – This is the first study of its kind and confirms what we have long suspected that plastics ultimately reach the human gut. Of particular concern is what this means to us, and especially patients with gastrointestinal diseases. The smallest micro plastic particles are capable of entering the bloodstream and lymphatic system and may even reach the liver.

“Now we have first evidence for micro plastics inside humans, we need further research to understand what this means for human health.”

Hundreds of pieces of micro plastics were found in every stool sample taken from people who took part in the study by the medical University of Vienna.

Researchers from the university and the Environment Agency Austria monitored participants from the UK, Finland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia and Austria. The results showed every sample tested positive for the presence of micro plastics – with up to nine different types identified. The most common plastics were polypropylene and polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) both are often found in food and drink packaging.

Each participant in the study kept a food diary for a week before his or her samples were analyzed in the laboratory. The diaries showed all the participants had eaten food wrapped in plastic or drunk from plastic bottles. None of the participants were vegetarian and six of them ate sea fish.

The micro plastics found were between 50 and 500 micrometers in size. A human hair has a thickness of between 17 and 181 micrometers.

The researchers behind the new study note: It is highly likely that during various steps of food processing or as a result of packaging, food is being contaminated with plastics.

Synthetic fabrics are also a significant source of micro plastics in the environment as fibers from clothes end up in the ocean from treated and untreated sewage being released into the rivers

Daily Mail

On reading this article it confirms in my mind that we all need some form of filtered water  – (Kangen water is always what I recommend) and much regulated plastic bottles to drink from.

Clean Up Your Lymphatic System

lymph system

Your lymphatic system rids your blood of waste, it is an extremely important process. Without it, your cells, tissues and organs would be overloaded with toxins and eventually the body creates a weakness in the immune system and the next thing you know you have a disease that can be quite serious . The only problem with the lymphatic system is that it doesn’t have its own pump; you have to stimulate its circulation. Here’s how:

1. Use a dry body brush: Start with your arms and legs and use long strokes, brushing towards your heart. Aim for five minutes before your morning shower.

2. Bounce on a rebounder: Vertical motion exercise smoothly opens and closes the lymphatic system’s one-way valves. Jumping on a rebounder, even gently, increases lymph flow by as much as 15-30 times.

3. Try lymphatic massage: This stimulates the lymph nodes and promotes fluid movement in lymph vessels.

4. Practise deep breathing: It oxygenates the lymphatic system, and moves fluid through it.

5. Eat clean: Foods for a top-notch lymphatic system include organic fruits and veggies, especially leafy greens for their detoxifying chlorophyll content. Essential fatty acids – found in flaxseed oil, spirulina, walnuts, almonds and avocadoes – are necessary for proper lymphatic function. Avoid preservatives, artificial sweeteners, refined grains, excess sugar, chemicals, and processed foods.

6. Drink up: The lymphatic system requires a constant supply of fluid, so chug a lug!

7. Move your ass: When your muscles move, they massage the lymphatic system and promote the flow of lymphatic fluid.
