Main Presentation: Our Toxic World – Is It Making Us Sick? by Andrew Campbell, MD

Toxins are everywhere. They are in our personal care products, cleaning products, sofas, carpets, and clothes.  Before a woman leaves the house she might have put on over one hundred toxic products. Most of these toxins have not been studied for their safety, and cause harm at doses lower than previously thought. They are synergistic causing greater harm when combined.

The US manufactures 70,000 different chemicals and makes five trillion pounds of toxins.  Only 1500 of these toxins have been studied for toxic effects.  Also in the US,  2.3 billion pounds of pesticides are produced and only 10 % of these pesticides are studied for toxicity
