Autoimmune Disease- Are you at Risk?
No matter how amazing the human body is, it can’t completely withstand the constant assault posed by stress, exposure to environmental toxins and unhealthy diet.
Rising from the modern lifestyle, these factors contribute to several health epidemics, and yes, autoimmune disease is on the top of the list. There are over 100 individual types of this disease including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease and multiple sclerosis.
These are characterized by inflammatory self- destructive immune responses. These disorders cause the immune system to turn against itself.
Are you at Risk?
Same as cancer, AI disease has been linked to environmental pollution and ‘’everyday poisons.’’ Toxins can be found in many foods, furniture, electronics, cleaning products, body/beauty products, toys, cookware, and so on.
The rising of the autoimmune disease can no longer be ignored, in areas of heavier toxin exposure. For decades, genetic factor was considered the sole cause of this disease.
While some experts believe that genetic predisposition to AI disease can place someone at a higher risk, immunotoxicology studies demonstrate that the higher risk of AI disease is influenced by something more widespread. We have to admit to our self’s that we live in a toxic world.
What is Autoimmune Disease?
Autoimmune disease can be described as breakdowns in communication between the body cells, where immune cells can no longer distinguish between our healthy tissue and harmful invader.
The T cells are responsible to attach the harmful invader, and when they are unsupervised and undereducated, they can destroy various areas if the body.
Women Have Much Higher Risk
Women are three times more likely to develop AI disease than men. This is complex, because numerous complexities accompany AI disease responses.
Women have larger presence of accumulated toxins in their bodies. These toxins can bind to estrogen receptors, mutate DNA, and disrupt vital functions.
It is important to note that AI disease can occur in women and men that live and work in areas that are polluted, areas exposed to dioxins, pesticides, heavy metals, hydrocarbons etc.
Taking proper regulation of the body’s response system using, nutritional supplements, healthy diet and healthy lifestyle, can successfully decrease the risk of developing AI disease.
