When you hear the words “toxic chemicals”, chances are good they conjure specific images. Perhaps you remember the town of Hinkley, California, poisoned by PG&E’s chemical leeching pools1. Or maybe you think about oil spills, like the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico2. Those certainly qualify, but the truth is that toxic chemicals are all around us, every day.
They’re in the foods we eat, the water we drink, and even in the surfaces that we touch. These toxic chemicals, are known by many names. Heavy metals like lead and mercury are familiar names, and the not quite so every day names of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), are a persistent, ever-present threat to your health, as well as that of your children.
You can test for levels of many of these toxins in your body through several of our available test profiles for Heavy Metals and Essential Elements.
