Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or freon is the refrigerant in
your air conditioner and refrigerator coils. CFCs are suspected
of causing the ozone hole above the South Pole. All cancer sufferers
test positive for CFCs in their cancerous organ! I have
preliminary evidence that it is CFCs that attract other pollutants–
fiberglass, metals, PCBs–to form a growing tumor instead of
allowing their excretion. This would make it a “super carcinogen.”.
How could you detect CFCs leaking in your home? By
the time your air conditioner or refrigerator needs recharging,
you have been exposed for a long time. We desperately need an
inexpensive, in-home test for this unsuspected killer.
Arsenic is used in pesticide. Why would we poison ourselves
along with the cockroaches? Is it because we can't see it
happening? Just as we couldn't see the fiberglass floating in the
air? Our diligent scientists have studied the mechanism of arsenic
poisoning in great detail. Then why are we allowed to put it on
our lawns to be carried into our carpets via shoes?
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), oily compounds with
wonderfully useful electrical properties, were originally used in
transformers until their inability to break down into less toxic
substances in our environment was spotlighted. Banned from use,
I find them in most commercial soap and detergents! Is
transformer oil being disposed of by selling it to soap makers?
Formaldehyde is used to cure foam. As a result, foam furniture,
pillows and mattresses give off formaldehyde for about
two years after manufacturing. If you sleep with your nose buried
in a new foam pillow all night, you are risking major lung
Every cleanser in your house probably has a toxic warning on
its label. Every fluid your automobile uses is toxic. Every
pesticide, herbicide and fertilizer you put on your lawn is
probably toxic. Every paint, varnish, wax, lubricant, bleach and
detergent will send you to the hospital if even a small amount is
ingested. Why do we keep them around? See Recipes (page 513)
for safe, old-fashioned, alternatives.
If you are ill even after zapping, it is toxins still at work.
Getting rid of them is a major step toward being well.
