Physical Toxins

Physical Toxins

Breathing in dust is quite bad for you so your body rejects it

by sneezing, coughing, spitting up and out. Imagine breathing in

broken glass particles. They cut into the lungs in a thousand

places and couldn't be coughed up. They would travel. Imagine

swallowing a needle or open pin. If the tip was blunt it could

move through the intestine. But because it is sharp it gets caught

in your tissue, then works its way deeper and deeper.

Would we ever knowingly breathe in broken glass? We are

justifiably afraid of it in our food or under our bare feet. We are

unaware that it fills our homes when fiberglass insulation is left

imperfectly sealed off. Any hole made through the ceiling or

wall, even if covered with cloth, lets swarms of broken glass bits

into the house air. Air currents flow inward, into your living

space. So all holes leading to the attic or insulated spaces must

be sealed airtight. Of course, fiberglass should never be used in

home construction, draperies, or around water heaters. The best

advice is to have it all removed while you are away and then

vacuum and dust.

Occasional exposures by house builders working outdoors

does much less harm. Chronic exposure from a single small hole

in the ceiling does a lot of harm, leading to cyst formation. And

that cyst is a perfect place for parasites and bacteria to settle and

multiply. When the intestinal fluke settles there it becomes


Cancer patients with solid tumors have either fiberglass or

asbestos in them.

Asbestos is another tiny bit, sharp as glass, that moves

through your body like a swordfish, impaling your cells until it,

too, gets routed into a cyst.

We have been led to believe that we no longer have asbestos

in our homes because we have outlawed the fireproofing materials

it was used in. While that may be true, the source I find most

often is all too prevalent: the clothes dryer belt. As it gets hot the

belt releases a blast of asbestos particles that are forced through

the seams of your dryer, and also openings in your exhaust hose,

by the high pressure formed inside. It is now in your air.
