The toxicity of this world

This toxicity of this world is killing our dreams, earth, future and life. With BPA in baby bottles, mercury in fish, and lead in computer monitors, the world has become a toxic place. When oxygen first developed in Earth’s atmosphere, it threatened the very existence of life: now we literally can’t live without it but we make it more and more toxic.

We evolved our chemical defenses such as antioxidants, metal binding proteins, detoxification, and cell death but as we alter the world’s chemistry, these defenses often become overwhelmed faster than our bodies can adapt. We need to make a decision, just to watch and continue the destruction or do something about it!
