“I absolutely love the exfoliating body
elixir with the yellow mitt. My skin had
become so dull and dry from the winter.
Ever since I started using this product my
skin has become so smooth, and silky soft
with a beautiful glow. I wouldn’t want to
be without it.”
Cathie Phelps, Sacramento, Calif.
Mankind has managed to drastically change the chemistry of our environment in which we live. For example, in 1996 alone, more than 418,000,000 pounds of chemicals were released into the ground, threatening a portion of our soil that we grow our food in and the natural underground water tables that supply most of our drinking water. Over 45,000,000 pounds of chemicals were also discharged into surface waters such as lakes and rivers. More than 1,000,000,000 pounds of chemical emissions were pumped into the air we breathe. "A grand total of 2,433,506,582 pounds of chemical pollutants released into the environment we eat, breathe and live in, all in just one year."
To compound the problem of our toxic environment, we have managed to refine away most of the nutritional value of our food supply by substituting it with mass production of artificial colorings, preservatives, flavorings, hormones, corn syrup and sugars. This poor quality diet combined with extensive use of antibiotics in an ardent culture filled with pesticides and lack of exercise have predisposed most of us to experience a kind of "internal pollution." Internal pollution occurs when unhelpful bacteria overcome the healthful bacteria in the intestinal tract. This unhealthy bacteria releases toxic byproducts into our circulation, which negatively impacts our overall health.
