A pile up of toxins can scuttle your health causing slight issues to life-threatening conditions including bad breath to cancer or depression. Despite the fact that people like going for healthy food choices, such as organic, whole foods, chances for harmful chemicals getting in to the body are still high. These include aluminum which is found in most deodorants and the declining quality of air that people are exposed to. These raise serious health concerns.

According to Mike Adams who featured in The Dr. Oz Show, even some foods that most people consider healthy could be unhealthy. Adams gave an example of some rice protein powders, typically the ones that are imported from Asia. He demonstrated that they contain high levels of lead, cadmium and even tungsten. Adams expressed his concern saying that it emerged from the fact that many people ingest all kinds of toxins every day and their accumulation over time can potentially have negative impacts in their health.

Noting that although lead and tungsten could be beneficial to our health in one way or the other, Dr. Oz said that they should however be included in our foods.
