Your Toxic Ingredient Time Bomb Is Ticking

The more toxic ingredients you’re exposed to, the more they accumulate over time, and the more toll they take on your health. At first your energy level or short term memory might seem a little less sharp. Then you have a few more aches and pains. At some point, your skin and hair starts to look duller. Then you start getting sick a little more often, and then your overall health begins to suffer.
