Home / Blog / General / Xenobiotics

Since we do not see it we often tend to forget the extent to which Xenobiotics are present in our environment. The following facts are sobering and make one wonder how much xenobiotics contribute to our ill-health:

– 77,000 chemicals are being manufactured in North America
– 3000 are added directly to our food supply
– The average city water contains over 500 chemicals
– Most individuals demonstrate 400 to 800 chemical residues in their fat cells
– EPA National Adipose Tissue Survey- 5 toxic chemicals; dioxin, styrene, xylene, 1-4-dichlorobenzene, ethylphenol found in 100% of samples
