By Elliot Caleira

People should be concerned about all the toxins that can get into their bodies. Various toxins exist in all sorts of products as well as the environment. Toxins can be found in hygienic products, cleaning agents as well as in the food people eat every day. A house could have mold as well as allergens in the dust and more.

Every part of a person's body can experience a negative effect from toxins. They can impact a person's brain causing everything from word confusion to headaches, poor memory, vertigo, erratic behavior. Toxins have also been connected to an increase in mental decline. Common toxins can be inhaled when a person breathes, or they can be absorbed through the skin when using a cream and more. It can also be ingested from things people drink, eat and more.

Kidney Damage

There has been some success with spontaneous kidney regeneration, but research is incomplete at this time.

Beauty Products

The average woman in America will use a dozen cosmetic and personal care products daily. There are about six used by the average man. When these products are used, the chemicals in them are quickly absorbed into a person's skin. They are then transported to all organs in a person's body. It's possible people trying to look good on the outside could be placing toxins on the inside of their body. It is advised people try to only use natural beauty products. Use ones without aluminum, parabens, acrylates, oxybenzone, formaldehyde as well as have no fragrance.
