Is Your Fat Toxic?

The answer is yes. Your fat is toxic which is why it's so hard to lose it. Find out what to do about it.

From the annual reports of the American Lung Association, the North American urban environment is now the most toxic it’s been in history, puffing clouds of toxins more deadly than even during the Industrial Revolution.

Most of the industrial chemicals and pesticides that have created this disaster are lipophilic, meaning they mix easily with fat—your fat.

Worst are dioxins, furans, polychlorinated biphenyls, polybrominated biphenyls (PBDs) and organochlorine pesticides.

They also include plastic exudates like phthalates and bisphenol-A and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons because most were deemed harmless when first introduced, they are everywhere.

PBDs and related flame-retardants and stain-proofers, for example, are used on carpets, furniture, mattresses, curtains, waterproof coats, shoes, gloves, even infant jammies.

After a decade of effort, the environmentally responsible company, WL Gore, that makes Goretex, finally got the last of these chemicals out of its products in January 2014 but many other companies seemingly couldn’t care less.

To avoid acute poisoning, your body removes the toxins from your bloodstream and stores them in your body fat. 

As the burden of toxins increases, it causes the body’s defense systems to make more and more fat cells to store them.

Without any change in food intake, you grow fat as a goose.

Are toxins making you fat

In 2006, Bruce Blumberg of the University of California, Irvine, first coined the term “obesogens” to describe man-made chemicals still widely used today in PVC products.

Obesogens increase body fat regardless of diet.

Blomberg showed that these chemicals caused a large increase in the body fat of mice independent of what they ate.

By 2011, hush-hush scientific conferences convened by the National Institutes of Health identified numerous industrial chemicals in current use as obesogens.

Regardless of even the most nutritious diet, they will increase your number of fat cells, and increase the size of your fat cells.

If you eat clean and exercise regularly, yet suffer from cottage cheese cellulite, Bispheno-A may be a culprit.

Bisphenol-A reprograms your surface fat cells to hold more fat until they finally burst (herniate) to make the unsightly bumps under the skin.

Fat cells require a ton of energy for the body to grow them which is why the more fat you have the greater increase your appetite and food cravings.

The high levels of obesogens in human breast milk of the majority of mothers provide ample evidence that you are carrying a lot of obesogens in your fat, right now, this minute, as you read.

Because we don’t know how to care for our environment, human body fat in the US and Canada has become a potent store of industrial toxins that slowly leach out of the fat to cause continuous low-grade poisoning of blood, muscles organs, and brain.

By absorbing more unavoidable toxins daily, you also make more fat cells and bigger fat cells in the process, regardless of your diet.

Now you know one big reason why many people who eat very clean all the time and work out regularly still carry an inch or more of fat all over their bodies.

Isagenix 11 Day Cleanse Schedule

You Can Fix This Problem For Yourself

As a constantly renewing organism, the miraculous human body is eminently cleanable.

Regular cleansing routines stimulate the body’s superb cleansing systems in the lymph system, liver, kidneys, bile duct, and elimination organs to flush toxins from the body.

For a systematic approach to help you get rid of visceral fat and its stored toxins out of your abdomen  I recommend the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat-Burning System.

It’s a complete nutrition program that emphasizes a high intake of clean water, intermittent food reduction, complete protein and micronutrient nutrition, and an alkaline regimen with effective botanicals.  

In independent peer-reviewed research at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Isagenix system, used for 12 weeks, resulted in a remarkable average loss of 3.6 kg (7.9 lbs) of body fat, while maintaining lean mass.
