Chemical pollutants: What alternatives facing a daily exposure?

The win-win concept may have become old fashion in business but in our everyday life it is more than topical! Our immediate environment returns us in another form, what we impose on it. Introduce pollutants ! A pollutant is a natural or artificial substance that man has introduced into an environment where it was absent (or present in different quantities). Pollution is classified according to the nature of its pollutants (chemical as here, physical or biological) or the affected compartment (pollution of air, water or soil). There are three classes of pollutants: physical pollutants (heat, noise, light, radioactive pollution), biological pollutants (algal toxins, pathogens and parasites) and chemical pollutants in liquid hydrocarbons detergents and surfactants, plasticizers (Bisphenol A, Phthalates), pesticides, eutrophying materials, heavy metals, medicines and cosmetics and other industrial products.

Relentless observation: chemical pollutants encircle us everywhere: by our food, by the everyday objects that surround us, in our search for well-being, EVERYWHERE! Not only are we daily exposed to chemical pollutants, but these chemicals, such as Bisphenol A, Dioxins and phthalates, could play a role in the rapid progression of type 2 diabetes. Professor Belpomme, in his book Comment naissent les maladies, agrees: Type 2 diabetes is actually caused by chemical pollution. Numerous studies have confirmed the "obesogenic" and "diabetogenic" properties of these pollutants.  Alternative solutions exist, and regulations are gradually limiting sources of chemical pollution. Meanwhile, ATTENTION to the chemical pollutants !
