A Australian study suggests the average person consumes 5 grams of plastic a week from contaminated food and water.
5 grams of plastic is the same size of credit card.
Plastic acts like an oestrogen in the body, and if you compare how little hormones you need to change your body, 5 grams is going to cause a big impact.
The plastics get stored in our fat cells and disrupt our hormones.
Sweating and eating vegetables higher in folate will help the body eliminate plastics.
Having plastics in our system can increase symptoms of weight gain, difficulty loosing weight, headaches, pms, bacterial overgrowth, microbiome imbalances and fertility issues.
To protect ourselves from plastic exposure we can get a regular sweat, eat plenty of veg that contain folate, filter our water and focus on cutting out plastics and polyester clothing from your life.
