Listen: Glyphosate discussed on The Ultimate Health Podcast
"They increase insulin. Assistance, they increase obesity, diabetes. And so that's just one example of I would say a category of toxins. We don't think of antibiotics in that particular category. But I, I would say your food can be toxic. One of the things I did is I was trying to heal from this experience. With antibiotics was to measure my life Assayed levels, so glyphosate semaine ingredient in round up the weed killer, nerve aside, and we know that glyphosate disrupts the integrity of the gut lining. So I found that my life is eight levels, even though I mostly eat organic were super high. So the levels that I had in my urine were in the ninety eight th percentile. So that's another example of toxin that we get exposed to presumably, you get exposed to it by eating foods that are genetically modified, but I think increasingly we're getting exposed in other ways, too. So that's one category is toxins. We could exposed to through our food. Another is. Medications, and there's also heavy metals third. These dimensions and OBI suggests that we talked about earlier things that disrupt insulin and other brain pathways. So those are some of the categories that we're trying to get rid of, and what would you say to somebody who wants to assess in this area and see where they're standing? I know there's a lot of different things that fall under the category of toxins. But how do we go boat assessing our current situation? Well, you could certainly use the questionnaire that I have at the beginning of the chapter on toxins. I tried to have it represent some of the best validated scales that we have when it comes to measuring your toxic burden. There's also more objective ways of measuring you can measure your body burden. You can look at how many validates, you're excreting you can look at bis phenol a there's a lot of different ways of measuring one way that I tend to use that often has ordered as part of a regular. Clinician exam is to look at your liver function. So there's an enzyme called ale t- that can tell you about toxic exposure in what we want with the ale tea is in women.."
