Five Common Household Chemicals That Are Toxic

People like effective products, and who can blame them? Yet, effective does not mean safe. Companies and organizations have developed and added chemicals to products in hopes of making them more effective and gathering a larger market share; however, those added chemicals pose health risks, regardless if they are deemed “safe” by government agencies.

A Rise in Superbugs, Medicines Are No Longer as Effective

Many people would imagine an end of the world, apocalyptic scenario like this: A highly contagious superbug, perhaps something like Zika, H1N1, or Ebola, infects the majority of the human population, and no drugs or medication seem to affect the disease, which kills most human life – after all, this has been the theme of many blockbuster movies.

Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins because it plays a role in many bodily functions. As a result, vitamin D deficiency has been shown to result in a range of problems including fatigue, bone and muscle pain, slower healing, perpetual sickness, decreased mood, and hair loss [1].

GABA acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, meaning it binds to neurons and hinders their ability to receive or respond to signals from other nerve cells. Without GABA in the brain, the nerves and central nervous system would be extraordinarily overactive and cause conditions like seizures, epilepsy, or mood disorders.
