Your Body's Environmental Chemical Burden


Cindy Klement has written the most important book on environmental toxins since Silent Spring by Rachel Carson.

The World Health Organization study released in March of 2016 reported that nearly 12.6 million people worldwide died as a result of environmental factors in 2012.

What are the health consequences of continued exposure to environmental chemicals throughout a lifetime, beginning in the womb? Scientists found an average of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns including pesticides, flame retardants, consumer product ingredients, and industrial pollutants. And that’s just the beginning. Exposure to contaminants continues thereafter on a daily basis creating a “body burden” or, simply put, an accumulated slurry of chemicals stored in our bodies.

What are these chemicals used for in industry? How are we exposed? Which tissues in the body are they stored in, and how do they affect our overall health? Can we detoxify persistent pollutants? Or, better yet, is it possible to further avoid them?

Referencing over 1500 published research papers highlighting the 25 most common chemicals affecting populations worldwide today, Your Body’s Environmental Chemical Burden not only provides answers to these questions but includes a comprehensive resource guide containing information on how to limit and even avoid future exposure.

"This is the best book I’ve seen on this topic. Well researched and backed up by scientific facts, this is a must-read for everyone, no matter their age or health."

Natural Awakenings Article

By Cindy Klement

We all swim in a slurry of chemicals during our day-to-day life on this planet. Some of these chemicals become stored in our tissue, where they can remain for a lifetime, while other chemicals are eliminated within hours after exposure. There is a large compilation of research studying how these chemicals can affect our health and well-being, and concerns are mounting that exposure to different classes of chemicals may actually enhance toxicity and intensify their effects...

Crazy Wisdom Community Journal

By Cindy Klement

In the fall of 2013 I attended a lecture on health. The presenter at the time used the term ‘body burden.’ I assumed that the burden he spoke of was that which most of us carry, meaning either our emotional burden or the burden of excess body weight. The term stuck with me for a very long time, piquing my curiosity. As a professor I have access to thousands of peer-reviewed scientific journals through the university online library, so one day I decided to see if searching ‘body burden’ would yield any published research...

From dangerous health effects to minimal testing to public policy that allows “grandfathering” under the Toxic Substance Control Act, the trail raised concerns that built into alarm...
