Body Burden of Chemicals

Chemical Body Burden

Body Burden

Today, I came across a really good website about the chemical burden that all of us carry in our bodies.  It is called Chemical Body Burden.

In their own words “The information on this site has been developed through the collaboration of health professionals, scientists, citizens groups and environmental organizations concerned about the chemical body burden we all carry and its health effects – known and unknown.”  And they list the actual individual contributors and their credentials

This is their answer to What is Body Burden?  “Toxic chemicals, both naturally occurring and man-made, often get into the human body. We may inhale them, swallow them in contaminated food or water, or in some cases, absorb them through skin. A woman who is pregnant may pass them to her developing fetus through the placenta. The term “body burden” refers to the total amount of these chemicals that are present in the human body at a given point in time.”

This site details very clearly some of the evidence out there that makes it clear why using MiEssence personal care products can be so important to a person’s health.  Our pure organic products will enhance your health, while most over the counter personal care products contain chemicals which add to your body burden.
