The beauty of the Pacific Northwest is legendary. Nature and all things “natural” seem to be a way of life here comparable to few other places in the country. Most of us take it for granted that everything that looks clean and beautiful is, well, clean and beautiful. Certainly, The Emerald City is just bursting with fresh air, clean water, nutritious food, and everything else that goes into our bodies….right?
What many people don’t know is that there is Prozac in our water supply. Pthalates, organochlorines and fire retardants in waters we fish. Growth-promoting hormones in our meat and cheese, insecticides in our vegetables and fruits. Bleach with Dioxin from the paper-processing plants drift in our air. These chemicals enter our bodies through all routes, and lodge themselves in our fat cells. Yes, right there in your belly, breast, and thigh fat.
