How Toxic Are You? Channel 4
We're made of chemicals, we rely on them, they're the basis of life. But the wrong types, in the wrong concentrations can cause serious damage. There are around 30,000 chemicals licensed for use in the UK today. Most make our lives easier, some make our lives safer, but for others, the jury is out.
Every year we splash out £6.4 billion on beauty products, but do we ever stop to think about what's in them or what they could be doing to us? The beauty industry spends £600 million a year marketing its products as pure, simple, organic and natural, but what's the truth behind the hype? Presenter Sarah Beeny wants to find out. First she meets Emma and Charlotte, two beauty-obsessed sisters. Between them they spend almost £1,000 a month on their beauty regime, but they have no idea how many chemicals are in their favourite products or whether these could be damaging their health.
Sarah has the girls tested, and with the help of two experts, is able to reveal the chemicals being stored in their bodies and then shows them how to detox by removing chemicals from their lives. Then Sarah meets two young mums to see whether the chemicals in the products they use are being passed on to their babies, before taking to the streets to find out whether parents really know what's in the special baby products they are buying.
A Unique Solution
But do not despair, because there is a way to flush chemical residues out of your body, thanks to the discoveries of researcher and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. He developed a method for reducing body levels of toxic chemicals - a method which has been widely implemented, studied and demonstrated to be safe and effective. It is the sauna detoxification programme, used with great success by the world's largest network of drug rehabs - Narconon. It is also used by the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project, bringing relief to those affected by 9/11, particularly firemen.
The attack on the WTC towers, and their subsequent collapse, brought unprecedented toxic exposures, beginning with a dust storm of pulverized concrete, steel, asbestos, carpeting, office equipment and other matter.
The Sauna Detoxification Programme
It is a precise regimen that includes exercise, sauna bathing, and vitamin, mineral and oil supplements. More than 20 years of clinical experience have established its value in treating chemical exposures.
A continuously evolving body of research projects has examined its application in the aftermath of exposure incidents. Scientists in the U.S., Europe and Russia have collaborated on this work.
Their findings have been published by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among many others.
