How would you feel if I told you there’s a common risk factor for nearly every significant killer disease out there that’s basically being ignored?
Or that we’re ALL at risk for becoming this killer’s victim, but something COULD be done about it if we were only willing to discuss it openly?
I imagine that silence would concern you. And if you’re anything like me, it might even make you mad, too.
But today, I intend to break that silence. Because I’ve got some news about this single major risk factor behind:
- heart disease
I’m talking about pollution. We’re all exposed to this source of death and destruction to some extent or another. And we’re all living with the damage it causes.
Pollution has directly contributed to the rise in cases of all of those major diseases above. But new research reveals a quick and easy action you can take to help reverse its toll and protect you from future damage.
Block the damage of pollution
Pollution doesn’t get anything close to the attention it deserves. Maybe if people understood what years of exposure to even “low” levels of this junk can do to cells, they’d already be demanding changes.
But let’s face it, that’s the last thing in the world the powers-that-be want. They don’t want to rock the boat of industry. So they downplay pollution, and the problem continues.
You can’t avoid the pollutants in many places. And you HAVE to breathe, of course. But you CAN work to reverse the toll they take on your health. And the new study reveals one effortless way to accomplish that.
Eat more veggies. And yes, I AM serious. Specifically, you should eat more apiaceous vegetables.
Never heard of them? You’re not alone. Most folks aren’t familiar with that name. But you’re definitely familiar with the veggies themselves, as this family includes favorites such as carrots, celery, fennel, parsnips, dill, and parsley.
Apiaceous vegetables contain some nutrients that have an incredible power. They can essentially punch out some of the most damaging pollution particles.
In lab experiments, these unique compounds in apiaceous veggies were able to block the damage of a toxic chemical called acrolein found in things like auto exhaust and cigarette smoke.
In other words, it’s a pollutant we’re all regularly exposed to. And yet it was wiped out by something as simple as an extract from Bugs Bunny’s favorite treat.
Put this pollution-fighting power to work for you
Now keep in mind that this was a lab study. But the team behind it is confident it’ll work just as well inside our bodies.
Maybe even better, as they found those nutrients help on two levels.
- First, they’re antioxidants. That means they can block the toxic damage of oxidative stress caused by the acrolein.
- And second, those same nutrients can help the liver convert acrolein into a water-soluble acid. And your body can literally flush it right out once that happens.
It doesn’t take much, either. A cup and a third of apiaceous veggies per day should do the trick.
But don’t stop there. There’s another simple way to get some extra protection from pollution. And lucky for us, it goes perfectly with those apiaceous veggies: olive oil.
Studies show a little olive oil each day can help reverse damage in the airways from exposure to a common pollutant called particulate matter.
But your lungs aren’t the only victims of that pollution damage. In fact, the fine particles found in auto exhaust, airplane exhaust, fires, and more have been tied to brain shrinkage.
But there’s a simple way to help protect your brain from pollution damage. In fact, you might already have this pollution solution in your medicine cabinet.
