The environment we live in is killing us. There is no place on earth that isn’t polluted with toxic chemicals. Diabetes, are just a few diseases that are affected. Today in the United States a new-born baby is born with at least 50 chemicals in its blood that are toxic. Many of these chemicals lead to children developing illnesses earlier than once occurred. For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death. In the less than two decades of their use, the synthetic pesticides have been so thoroughly distributed throughout the animate and inanimate world that they occur virtually everywhere. Sadly, scientists have found disturbing levels of modern man-made chemical in the wildlife, plants, seaweeds, fish and waters in all bodies of water. Approximately 200 million people are suffering damage to body and brain, often irreparable, by the exposure to lead, mercury, chromium, obsolete pesticides and radionuclides in thousands of polluted places. 60,000 different chemicals since WWII; Over 1,000,000,000 pounds are released into the ground; over 188,000,000 pounds of chemicals are discharged into surface water such as lakes and rivers; more than 2,400, 000,000 pounds of chemical emissions are pumped into the air we breathe. A grand total of 5,705,670,380 pounds of chemical pollutants are released into our environment.
"There is so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it." Robert Orben
