Pollutants are all the dead things around us that should not get
into your body because they interfere with its work. As long as
they don't penetrate your tissues, they won't interfere, like plastic
eyeglasses and clothing. But if they are invasive, your body must
fight to remove them.
Pollutants can invade your body via the air you breath, the
foods and beverages you eat, and the products you put on your
The biggest tragedy is not recognizing
when a pollutant is harming you.
Two people can use the same face cream. One develops a
rash, the other does not. The one who did not assumes the cream
is not harmful to themÖthat they are like a bank vault, impregnable
to that product. A better assumption is that the face cream
is somewhat toxic, as evidenced by the rash that can develop,
and they escaped the rash only because they had a stronger immune
system. The immune system is like money, paid out of the
bank vault, for every toxic invasion. When the money is gone, the
bank (your health) fails.
