We have managed to create an alarming chemical soup in which we live. The air we breathe carries agrichemicals and pollution, the water we drink is laced with chemicals and heavy metals, the food we eat has insecticides and pesticides on it and in it, as well as additives, colours and preservatives. We have to detoxify, and store or eliminate, all these compounds, and this can reduce our physical reserves when we are dealing with other priorities such as fending off breast cancer.
