If you care about your health and the environment, you should be aware of the dangers of PFAS, or "forever chemicals". These are synthetic substances that are used in many products, such as non-stick cookware, waterproof clothing, stain-resistant carpets, cosmetics, water, food, and personal care products.
The last thing you want to do is add more synthetic chemicals/drugs into your body to help eradicate the PFAS from your system. Your best option is to detox. The most thorough and beneficial detox available is the DetoxHerb provided by the Family Helm clinic.
Not only is this detox risk free but it is safe and all-natural. It does not require fasting, special diets, or a sauna (which most of us don't have access to). The detox is carried out in several steps and for those of us who have taken it, we are all in awe of how well this particular detox works and how great we feel afterwards.
The DetoxHerb gets down to the cellular level so even your blood cells, along with all other body cells, are getting detoxed. Because these products cross thru the blood brain barrier, which no synthetic substance/drug can do, the brain cells are also detoxed.
PFAS are released into the air, water, and soil by industrial activities, such as oil and gas extraction, firefighting foam, and waste disposal. PFAS are called "forever chemicals" because they do not break down easily in nature. They can accumulate in our bodies and cause serious health problems, such as cancer, hormone disruption, immune system damage, and reproductive harm. They can also contaminate our drinking water sources and food supply, posing a threat to public health and wildlife. The chemical industry has been hiding the truth about PFAS for decades, lobbying against regulation and accountability. They have also been developing new types of PFAS that are less studied but potentially more harmful. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has failed to protect us from PFAS exposure, setting inadequate standards and allowing loopholes for industry.
It takes four to seven years for the PFAS levels in the body to decrease by half! When PFAS do leave the body they leave through the urine. If we are constantly being exposed to these forever chemicals, it makes sense they will always be in our systems wreaking havoc unless we detox.
How PFAS Were Discovered
PFAS stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, a group of synthetic chemicals that have multiple fluorine atoms attached to an alkyl chain. PFAS have unique properties that make them resistant to water, oil, stain, and heat, and they are widely used in various industries and consumer products.
The history of PFAS dates back to the 1930s, when they were accidentally discovered by a chemist named Roy Plunkett. He was working on developing new refrigerants for DuPont, and he noticed that one of his samples had turned into a white powder that was very slippery and stable. He realized that he had created a new type of polymer with fluorine-carbon bonds, which are very strong and difficult to break. He named this substance polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is now better known as Teflon.
The discovery of PTFE opened the door for further research and development of other PFAS, such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). These chemicals were used as surfactants, or substances that lower the surface tension of liquids, and they were applied to various products to make them nonstick, waterproof, or fire-resistant. For example, PFOS was used in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), a firefighting agent that was developed in the late 1960s after a deadly fire aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, in 1967.
PFAS became very popular and profitable for their manufacturers, such as DuPont, 3M, and Chemours. However, over time, it became evident that these chemicals also posed serious environmental and health risks. PFAS are very persistent in the environment and in living organisms, meaning that they do not break down easily and they accumulate over time. They have been detected in water, soil, air, wildlife, and humans all over the world. They have also been linked to various adverse health effects, such as cancer, liver damage, immune system dysfunction, hormonal disruption, and developmental problems.
As the scientific evidence and public awareness of the dangers of PFAS grew, many countries and organizations started to regulate or ban their production and use. For example, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a health advisory for PFOA and PFOS in 2016, recommending that the combined concentration of these chemicals in drinking water should not exceed 70 parts per trillion (ppt). The EPA also initiated a voluntary phase-out program for PFOA and PFOS with major manufacturers in 2006. However, some critics argue that these actions are not enough to protect the public and the environment from the legacy and ongoing contamination of PFAS.
KemoHerb, PFAS, and Cancer
PFAS are very persistent in the environment and in the human body, and some of them have been linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer.
In the event that you or someone you know develops cancer, there are successful options beyond outdated chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery and the survival rate is clearly remarkable. KemoHerb is completely holistic and all-natural.
It's patented proprietary Technology/Innovation addresses the malfunction of a cell and assists the body’s healing. The body is an amazing mechanism that has the ability to repair and heal internal and external damage to itself. However the healing process often is prevented by an imbalance in the cell which prevents the cell from receiving the proper balance of nutrients and other elements produced by the body. By supplying botanicals/herbals nutrients to the cell and using the Technology/Innovation to properly deliver the nutrients to the cell, the cell has an opportunity to be balanced and return to normal function. The cancer does not survive this process and your own body quickly heals itself. There are no side-effects, no painful treatments, body parts are kept intact, and healing happens. It is a wonderful process! Have faith, take the leap, and change you or someone else's life.
According to a large study of 70,000 people living in the Mid-Ohio Valley, where drinking water was contaminated by PFAS from a chemical plant, elevated body levels of PFOA, one type of PFAS, were associated with a greater risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and kidney, testicular, prostate, and ovarian cancers . Another study of workers in a PFAS-producing plant found an increased risk of kidney cancer and testicular cancer with higher PFOA exposure . Some studies have also suggested a possible link between PFOA and thyroid cancer, but the results are not consistent .
The exact mechanisms by which PFAS might cause cancer are not fully understood, but some possible ways include:
PFAS can interfere with the normal functioning of hormones, such as thyroid hormones, estrogen, and testosterone, which play important roles in regulating cell growth and differentiation .
PFAS can induce oxidative stress and inflammation, which can damage DNA and other cellular components, and promote tumor growth and invasion .
PFAS can affect the immune system, which is responsible for detecting and eliminating abnormal or infected cells .
PFAS can alter the expression of genes involved in cell cycle regulation, apoptosis (programmed cell death), DNA repair, and metabolism .
More research is needed to better understand how different types of PFAS affect cancer risk, and whether there are safe levels of exposure for humans. In the meantime, people can reduce their exposure to PFAS by avoiding products that contain them, such as non-stick cookware, stain-resistant carpets and fabrics, water-repellent clothing, and some food packaging. People can also check their drinking water quality and use filters that can remove PFAS if needed.
