101: Toxic Top 10

Transcript of Episode 101: Toxic Top 10

With Dr. Daniel Pompa and Meredith Dykstra.

Meredith:
We are at Episode 101; hard to believe already. We have recorded 101 episodes of this great show. Thanks for tuning in. We’re so excited to have you here. As you can see, the background has changed a little bit.

Dr. Pompa:
We're together.

Meredith:
We are; we are together, physically. You’re not in Utah. That rarely happens. We’re here in Pittsburgh. We are at our store, Revelation Health. We are filming right here in Pittsburgh, so we may possibly have some customers walk into the store. We’re just going to be kind of open. It’s live, so anything’s possible. I wanted to mix it up and show you guys our beautiful store in the background. If anybody's in the Pittsburgh area, come and see us any time.

Dr. Pompa:
You can be on Cellular Healing TV, so come on in.

Meredith:
That’s true. You just might end up on the show. You never know. Excited to have you here today.

The topic today is a really exciting topic that we’re going to revisit. I know you’ve done a lot of past videos and written a lot of articles on this topic. Today’s topic is the Toxic Top Ten. Dr. Pompa is going to kind of break up the list into two categories. The toxic top ten are going to be the top five are the five top toxic issues that are under your roof in your household, and five toxic issues that are actually right underneath your nose. We have the list for you. I’m going to read a little bit before we jump in. I know we’ve modernized and updated the list as well a little bit so it can keep up with the times. When you compiled this list, it was probably at least five years ago.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, at least five years ago.

Meredith:
Most things are still appropriate, but some things we wanted to make some changes to as well.

Dr. Pompa:
I don’t know if we should title this Toxic Top Ten or Detoxing Your Life. One thing I always talk about is our number one is getting rid of toxins from our body, but it’s also us getting rid of toxins from our life. Detoxing your home and detoxing your life I think really is the topic of this.

I’m not sure if I should look at you here or here. I’m used to looking at you here. It’s like, yeah, we’re going to do it.

Meredith:
It’s like a little talk show.

Dr. Pompa:
I think this is relevant, what you’re going to read. Even though it was five years ago, I think that this is even more now. These are statistics that were relevant five, ten years ago.

Meredith:
It’s still shocking.

Dr. Pompa:
Right, still shocking. Imagine where it is now. I’ll just turn that over to you.

Meredith:
Even worse. The environmental toxins we’re going to talk about today are a very broad entity of toxins. This grouping encompasses every toxin in our lives. We’ve been inundated with 80,000 chemicals since World War II. Tens of thousands –

Dr. Pompa:
I wonder what that’s at today: 100, 200,000? 300,000? Where is it? I don’t know.

Meredith:
It’s shocking; 1,500 new chemicals each year at best. Obviously many more each year. Ten are tested for neurotoxic effects. We know many more. Zero are tested for synergistic effects, I think, which is a huge underlying issue with all of this. We’re inundated with so many chemicals, which we know are toxic even separately, stand-alone toxins. The synergistic issue of all of these toxins coming at us at one time is mind-boggling. We don’t even know.

Dr. Pompa:
It is. They’re not tested. They’re approved. Just because these are cleaning chemicals, they get away with stuff that really is absolutely criminal as far as what they’re able to put into these products, that we’re using, that we’re absorbing right into our skin, right into our blood stream, right into our children. They have these trade secrets. They're protected under trade secrets. They can put some stuff in here that we know cause cancer, that we know cause neurotoxic effects. That’s why a statistic like that is really damaging. There's every year 1,500 new chemicals not tested are coming in. They’re protected, even a lot of these old chemicals, under trade secrets and also grandfathered in because they were approved then, but yet we know they’re still toxic, so really, really bad stuff.

Meredith:
They don’t have to label it, either.

Dr. Pompa:
No, and they don’t have to label it. When we talk about detoxing your life and body, I always say, “Look, imagine a stream.” We’re downstream emptying out toxins. We’re cleaning our stream, making the environment better. Upstream, we have toxins coming in. Folks, this is what we’re doing in our homes every day. Find under your roof, you need to get in control to protect you and your family, especially if you’re concerned about detoxing. Many of you are wasting time and money detoxing yourselves when meanwhile your life needs detox. Of course, there's five right under our nose meaning these are things that people are doing in their daily life, whether it’s cosmetics, beauty supplies, whatever it is. We have to stop the incoming stream. Otherwise, forget it. I always say that detox is – I don’t know the analogy. It’s kind of like you’re trying to empty the leak and it’s still flowing in. This coming in faster than you’re trying to empty it out and all of a sudden it overflows. That’s how people get sick. Detox Your Life, that’s this show.

Meredith:
It really goes back to our number one, which is the bottom line for all of it is removing the source of the toxins, so the underlying threat. Without further ado, it’s impossible to really tackle this broad spectrum. To keep things in mind, we’re going to have this list and you can have it as a reference so you can really be reminded of all these things that we don’t always realize are so toxic in our lives on a daily basis that we’re surrounded by that really do impact our health.

Without further ado, The Toxic Top Ten. These first five are the toxic top five that are going to be under your roof. Number one, we have household cleaners. What’s so toxic about those?

Dr. Pompa:
What we just said. There's things in there that are neurotoxins, cancer causers. They’re known to do that. They don’t even have to be listed. They’re protected under trade secrets. Some of the most toxic things that we’re absorbing that alter hormones are chemical cleaners that are right in our home. You’re saying, “Yeah, but I’m not breathing it.” By the way, you do. When you spray these things, it’s going right into your airways, right into your blood stream. However, we’re spraying things on counters and then we’re putting food and things on those counters.

Also, dishwashers. By the way, I’m looking back there because we have alternatives that we carry here in the store that we use in our homes. Dishwashers are one of the most toxic things in our homes.

Meredith:
Dishwashers?

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, because it gets you a couple of ways. Number one, the soap is a film on everything that you’re eating from. It’s going in as you're eating or drinking. The dishwasher puts out a toxic gas from the soap, and not to mention the city water, which contain, which we’re getting to, chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals. When the dishwasher is running, it’s putting this toxic gas of the chemicals in the soap, which are numerous, and the chemicals from the city water mix. Literally, I don’t recall how many liters per hour this thing pumps out this toxic gas. When you open it, you see that big toxic flume come out.

Meredith:
Yeah, it’s that cloud.

Dr. Pompa:
Studies show that you get more in that moment of these types of toxins than you do literally in months of other exposures. Dishwashers; who would think? When we talk about water, we'll talk about that’s one of the reasons why whole house water filtration is really important.

Meredith:
The synergistic effect.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely, it's the synergistic effect and why a simple change – I think you can buy this seventh generation in just about every store. You pop these in, this natural dishwashing detergent packs right in. The of course, here’s another one. If you looked at the cancer-causing chemicals in most of these products that you’re ingesting day in and day out, this is a worthy change, something so simple.

Of course, this one here is a furniture polish. Years ago I did a piece about these sprays that people use on their furniture and how hormone-disrupting they are. We’re talking about spraying furniture. There’s a simple, easy, natural solution. By the way, online you can make a lot of these at home. You probably know that.

Meredith:
Yes. Many easy access recipes. Just Google natural household cleaners. You can use essential oils. These things are really effective. They get your home and your clothes clean without the toxic effects. They can be very cost-effective as well.

Well, we didn’t talk about – what are these here for the laundry? That can be pretty toxic as well, right?

Dr. Pompa:
Actually, there’s a piece about toilet bowl cleaners. These things are known to cause cancer. They off gas dramatically. After a bathroom's been cleaned, those things off gas for hours and hours and hours. You and your children are breathing them. All-purpose cleaners – again, these brands are, I think, in every store now. These are things that we use in our home. You don’t ever see a non-natural cleaner in our home, ever.

Now you hit a pet peeve of mine: laundry. Again, it’s been estimated at least six neurotoxins in the fabric softeners. I drive down neighborhoods, and typically, for whatever reason, apartments – I don’t know what it is, generally in an apartment complex – and I smell it. I smell it. We have a codename for this. When people come around you, and they smell like fabric softener, we say, “Bounce, bounce, baby.”

Meredith:
Bounce, bounce, baby, okay.

Dr. Pompa:
You’ve heard Warren and I say that word.

Meredith:
I believe I have. Maybe I didn’t know what you were referring to.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s right. That’s the point because we don’t want to offend somebody. In the past, if an old client, patient would come in, Warren would say, “Bounce, bounce baby.” Sure enough, within a minute, I would be like, “Ah, yeah,” smell it.

Meredith:
I know.

Dr. Pompa:
It emanates. There’s a 10-foot radius when you catch somebody that uses fabric softener. It’s offensive, especially when you know how toxic it is. Folks, it’s not just the nose; the chemicals are going into your skin. Most of them are endocrine disruptors. They alter your hormones. They cause weight loss resistance.

I’ve had people get rid of their fabric softeners, and their migraine headaches go away. All of a sudden, they start to be able to lose weight where they wouldn’t before. That’s how toxic this stuff is. What you’re washing your clothes in is hugely important. Again, there are so many laundry detergents now that are natural. Get them. My pet peeve is, in fact, the fabric softeners. Eco-safe, when Warren got these, I’m telling you, he was so excited. I have to admit that we use them as a double. My pets end up getting them because –

Meredith:
Yeah. Wool dryer balls, they soften clothes, decrease drying time by up to 25%, and they’re awesome and totally natural, hypoallergenic minus the toxins.

Dr. Pompa:
The pets love them.

Meredith:
It’s a win-win. All right. We covered a lot. All right. We mentioned the dishwashers, the cleaning products, the laundry. All right. That’s number one, household cleaners. All right. Number two –

Dr. Pompa:
It’s such an easy exchange.

Meredith:
Yeah, easy.

Dr. Pompa:
Come on, folks. Finances are not a problem because these may cost more money – to me, worth every penny – however, you can always make your own.

Meredith:
Yes, yes. Good reminder. Yes. All right, household cleaners, number one. Number two, we have furniture, carpets, and appliances. Now, how are those affecting our health?

Dr. Pompa:
Okay. First of all, we’re not telling you to just rip all of your furniture and start from scratch. That would be a hard exchange.

Meredith:
Right, right.

Dr. Pompa:
Every time you buy new, keep in mind that these are some of the most toxic things in our home. When we bring a new computer in your home, you smell a certain smell. You may not; I do. It’s typically bromine and other flame retardants that they spray on it.

By the way, these are thyroid disruptors. Bromine, in particular, it really mimics a lot of the thyroid hormones. It mimics iodine. It even competes for iodine, and that’s what you need to actually make thyroid hormone. Think of them as thyroid disruptors, flame retardants. It’s sprayed on new furniture. It’s sprayed on all your new computers.

What do we do about that? We heat them. We either put a heater on your – not directly on your computer, but a certain distance away so we heat it, or if it’s a sunny day, you put it outside in the sun, whether it’s furniture, anything new that you bring into your home.

I have to say this: I put my new computer outside in the sun. It started off really sunny. Of course, it started raining. I went out, and my computer was wet. I did get it. It was fine.

Meredith:
Your new computer!

Dr. Pompa:
Don’t make the same mistake Dr. Pompa made.

Meredith:
Don’t make that mistake.

Dr. Pompa:
Sun and heat are what you want to do with these new products. Of course, today, you can buy even mattresses flame retardant-free, which oftentimes, you have to get, in certain states, a doctor’s written excuse. Yeah.

Meredith:
You have to have an excuse to not get the toxins. Wow! Isn’t that crazy?

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. They spray all of these things with these chemicals. They’re hormone disrupting, as I said.

Meredith:
Is that because guidelines require them to from our government?

Dr. Pompa:
Yep, absolutely. They’re flame retardant. Of course, there’s many other chemicals in furniture. Oftentimes, you get what you pay for. Solid wood furniture is much less toxin-free than these pressed, different boards, all the false stuff, the cheap stuff. Those are loaded with toxins.

Oftentimes, when we walk into someone’s home, it’s a new home. We’re trying to locate where the biggest sources of toxins. By the way, it’s called VOC volatile, organic compounds, or these toxins that off-gas, and you smell that in new cars, smell it in new homes.

Meredith:
The new car smell –

Dr. Pompa:
That’s right. By the way, those are flame retardants, typically. Styrenes, another hormone disruptor, cancer causes. That’s that new car smell. When we walk into a home, it’s the cabinetry. I’ll give you a website. He’s a friend of ours, Joel from GreenBuildingSupplies.com. He sells, even, sealants that you can seal off some of these new cabinets, things.

Today, Joel, on his site and others, they have non-VOC everything, paint. When you paint, we always use non-VOC in our home. They have non-VOC sealants for new furniture, things like that. Even carbon things that you can lay in your new cabinets to pull in the odors. Choosing the right things when you buy new, I think, is important. GreenBuildingSupplies.com will help you. I think that every place, now, is becoming more and more aware of these VOCs that we bring into our home when we bring new furnitures in.

All of the padding, the urethanes, are made from different petrochemicals that off-gas. Listen, when you get a new pillow, get real wool, 100% organic cotton.

Meredith:
Cotton, just natural fiber.

Dr. Pompa:
I love wool as a pillow because it’s naturally antibacterial. It keeps bedbugs, and these funguses, and bacterias that accumulate over time from moisture, etcetera, it keeps it at by. Organic cotton, organic wool, and even real rubber, actual latex, which has an odor in the beginning, but it’s a natural odor. Those are my three favorite choices for mattresses, pillows, and blankets, things that we’re exposed to all night long, up against our skin, and breathing.

Meredith:
Yeah. Sleep on a rubber pillow, rubber blanket.

Dr. Pompa:
There are real rubber pillows, yes.

Meredith:
Ah!

Dr. Pompa:
I have one. I have two.

Meredith:
What’s the brand?

Dr. Pompa:
One is – oh, gosh –

Meredith:
I’m going to write that down.

Dr. Pompa:
Hold on. I’m going to come up with it any second. The Cloud was the name of my mattress. Royal-Pedic makes them, and that was our –

Meredith:
Royal-Pedic rubber pillows, how fun.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, Royal-Pedic. They make pillows; they make mattresses. There’s many brands out there, and I’ve even bought some of the pillows from other brands. These are things that – there’s a website called Nirvana – I don’t know where that came from – Nirvana Safe Haven.

Meredith:
Okay.

Dr. Pompa:
It’s this little, old lady, just loves health. We love her. You could buy some of these pillows and things off of her site, too, even those carbon things that go on – absorb smells. She sells those. She even sells air filtration units, which we’re going to get to air. Just some great website there that you can buy this stuff at.

Meredith:
Nirvana Safe Haven and the rubber pillow, I love that. Just one more question: How long do you suggest off-gassing something new?

Dr. Pompa:
Every time you pass Warren’s house, there’s something outside off-gassing.

Meredith:
Yeah, there is. Even at the store, we’re off-gassing these new chairs when we got them.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, yeah. Right, yeah. I think it’s just really – I’d go by smell. I have a very clever nose. I’ll sit them out there for days, even weeks, just moving them in and out on sunny days, putting heaters on them in your garage, of course. Don’t put a heater on your computer or a new chair and have it in your home because then the off-gassing -inaudible-. Do it in a garage or outside, if possible. It’s days or weeks depending on – I can smell it. I re-smell it and see where we’re at in the process, days or weeks, honestly.

Meredith:
Yeah. I do the same thing with dry-cleaning, as well, which I know is very toxic. I don’t know if we’re even going to talk about that. Yes. I’ll always leave that out in my garage or outside, too, very toxic.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s a good point, dry-cleaning. Again, there’s many safe dry-cleaners today. They’re not using –

Meredith:
Mm-hmm. There are options, better options.

Dr. Pompa:
I’ve had many clients who worked in dry-cleaners, even owners of dry-cleaners, and they end up with Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative disease. A lot of the chemicals in dry-cleaner are known to cause Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Folks, we’re putting these clothes, especially people that dry-clean daily, on our skin. Again, it’s going into your blood stream.

There is safer dry-cleaners today, but always take the paper off, and let it off-gas, typically in your garage or some area where it’s not going to be on you first. I kind of don’t wear a shirt for even – we’re using natural dry-cleaner. I let them off-gas before I wear them, and Warren does the same thing. I’m sure you do the same thing.

Meredith:
Yeah – even the natural. Just not worth the risk.

Dr. Pompa:
Yup.

Meredith:
Great. All right. We’ve had household cleaners, furniture, carpets, and appliances, which didn’t even get into the carpets, but that’s kind of -inaudible-, as well.

Dr. Pompa:
Carpets are loaded with formaldehyde in glue that they use. Natural, wool carpets are so easy to find today – rugs. I’m sorry, rugs. Carpets today, if you go into a hotel, -inaudible- use the wool carpets because, why? They last longer. They’re a better quality.

Listen, spend the money on your carpets. It will take two years, oftentimes, for a cheap carpet – by the way, most of the carpet that people are using in their homes, at least get put in our homes, two years to off-gas. We’re talking about formaldehyde levels.

Meredith:
Two years? Oh, my!

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. It’s formaldehyde levels, dangerous levels, up to a year. Still high levels, even a second year. If you’re building a new home, make sure you use the carpet – all wool carpets. They have no-VOC carpets now. I know Joel sells them on GreenBuildingSupplies, who’s, by the way, going to be one of our guests in a future show.

Meredith:
Yes. Mm-hmm. Yeah, great. All right. Awesome. Moving on, number three, under the – toxins under the roof, we have water. Now, a lot of people just turn on that faucet and drink tap water. What’s the problem with tap water?

Dr. Pompa:
It’s hard for me to believe that people still drink tap water.

Meredith:
People do. I was just at a party yesterday drinking it. Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. I go out to dinner, people say, “Oh, I’ll just drink the tap water.” I’m like, “Really?” It’s amazing because there’s so much out there. You even watch the news, and you see about how the water’s contaminated with medications, hormones that everyone’s taking. It’s in the water. Antibiotics, it’s in the water.

Meredith:
Birth control pills – yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
Birth control pills, right. The hormone disruption in water, it’s through the roof. We’re talking about fish that are literally transforming into females versus males or these things that really aren’t males or females because of the hormones in water. We’re drinking tap water? Really? Psychotropic drugs are in tap water altering our serotonin, dopamine levels.

We know that water is toxic. It doesn’t matter if the water’s good in our city or state. Oh no, no. It’s loaded with medications. Of course, chlorine, fluoride, these things that are purposely put in water, and then of course, the other contaminates that you’d typically find. Heavy metals are still in water.

Meredith:
Heavy metals –

Dr. Pompa:
The different farming chemicals, which are still going to be found in water – to me, something so simple. At least get a reverse osmosis point of service, $200, $300, a really good one, maybe $500. This is worth its weight in gold. Why not bottled water? Because bottled water is heated, and it’s stored in the warehouses in plastic.

Meredith:
Plastic –

Dr. Pompa:
When I travel, do I use bottled water? Yes, but at home, day in, day out, get a point of service unit.

Meredith:
It’s convenient.

Dr. Pompa:
Listen, save up for a whole-house unit, somewhere between $1,000 and $3,000. Don’t we have a reference on -inaudible-.

Meredith:
Mm-hmm. We do, RevelationHealth.com. We have plenty of water filtration systems. We have point of service, we have full-house filtration, so plenty of options depending on your budget and your preference.

Dr. Pompa:
We have the video of what I have in my house.

Meredith:
Mm-hmm.

Dr. Pompa:
Warren did a video with water of what he has in his house. To me, it’s important. I talked about the dishwasher. Here’s another one: you shower. You’re breathing in a shower, a 10-minute shower. It’s like drinking 10 glasses of chlorinated water.

Meredith:
Ten-minute shower –

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. In other words, just showering in there, it’s like you’re taking in, right into your lungs, chlorine, fluoride, every chemical that’s in the water. The dishwasher issue – I’m a firm believer in whole-house water filtration as well as point of service. Every house I go in, I make sure I have both.

Meredith:
Wow. So many of us think about what we’re drinking, but not as much about over-showering. Good reminder there. Awesome. All right. Moving on. Number four, under the roof, we’ve got our air quality. What’s wrong with our air?

Dr. Pompa:
On our site, D-R Pompa.com, we have an air – I show how I bring in fresh air. Look, we talked about these things that we can’t avoid, some of the carpets, some of the furniture that’s already in our home. Here is the problem. We are building homes that are sealed. Yes, they’re better for our heating bill and air conditioning bill, right? They’re more efficient.

Meredith:
Mm-hmm. Yes.

Dr. Pompa:
We’re making homes more efficient; however, the problem is we’re sealing these homes into these little, toxic balls. We’re painting all the furniture, all the chemicals we use daily, the sprays, everything. All of these chemicals are being trapped because homes do not breathe. We use something called an ERV, an energy return ventilator, that I hook up to all my homes. It brings in fresh air. We have one in this building that brings in fresh air and brings out stale air. Home are sealed, so these units are very important to recycle the air. Air quality is huge.

Of course, putting in a better air filter than what’s that little, thin one that comes in every filtration. You can upgrade, not even expensive anymore. It’s something really quality that at least takes out a lot of the pollens, the dust that carries toxins with it. Those are important. Even today, there’s things for the air like different UV lights that knock down viruses, bacteria, mold spores, things like that.

Air conditioning units, they have a compressor. What happens is that the cooling device, it runs, then it shuts off. What happens is condensation, moisture, forms on it, especially in humid areas, East Coast, Florida, Georgia, I could go down the list. What happens is that mold forms on it. Now, the mold is blowing into your home every time the AC unit -inaudible-. Again, putting something on there – matter of fact, we did an episode on how to make your home safe. It was titled that, so I’m not sure. It was in the seventies as far as episodes go. We interviewed Dan Howard.

Meredith:
More recently, too.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. That was recently. Was that in the eighties?

Meredith:
The mold remediation show – yeah. That was, maybe, 92, 91. We can easily find that.

Dr. Pompa:
Okay. All right. Find that because we talked about this issue of making homes safe.

Meredith:
Ninety-three.

Dr. Pompa:
Okay, 93. Episode 93, we interviewed an expert in environmental air, homes.

Meredith:
Mm-hmm – mold expert.

Dr. Pompa:
We talked about mold. He’s a mold expert. Also, we talked about how to make your home safe, things to look for. Utilizing these things are really important. Here’s a simple thing: Put your fan on, instead of auto, where it goes on and off, your fan should run all the time. Number one, the air gets filtered more, and number two, that air continually blows so that moisture doesn’t build up on the air conditioner, especially in the summer. That coil builds up that moisture, but if the fan keep blowing, it dries. Let your fans run all the time. Couple hints there.

Meredith:
Yeah. Good point there. Before we move on from the air, how about air fresheners? Can you talk about that?

Dr. Pompa:
Pet peeve! Okay, the dryer balls, “Bounce, bounce baby,” another pet peeve is when I go into a car or a home that has air fresheners, again, loaded with neurotoxins, unnecessary. We’re thinking we’re making our air fresh.

Meredith:
Yeah, just smelling so clean and lovely. Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
There’s salt that’s fresh. When there’s natural essential oils that are actually good for you, not neurotoxic – listen, people watching this, we have a lot of people who are chemically sensitive. I call them canaries in the coalmine. I was one of them. Many people around us are these canary in a coalmine.

Meredith:
Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
Air fresheners, we call bonk them out faster than anything, fabric softener, too. You go into a car and have them in – last time I came to Pittsburgh – and I wouldn’t even consider myself chemically sensitive – the cab driver or Uber driver that took me from the airport to Warren’s house, I got in. I was like, “Wow! I’m not chemically sensitive anymore. The heck with it. I’m not switching cabs.” Within 10 minutes, I’m going, “Whoo!”

Meredith:
Wow!

Dr. Pompa:
I’m like brain fog. Yeah. “So, what’s the address?” I’m like – it got –

Meredith:
It happened so quickly.

Dr. Pompa:
Most people, they just don’t know what happened.

Meredith:
Right.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah.

Meredith:
Connect the dots.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely. I ended up educating him why those air fresheners are a really bad idea, and some are more so. Get those things out of your house. Essential oils, don’t they sell the little diffusers?

Meredith:
Yes. Yes.

Dr. Pompa:
You can put them in, and – especially because –

Meredith:
The diffuse a natural, lovely scent without the toxins. Why wouldn’t you choose that?

Dr. Pompa:
Next steps – yeah.

Meredith:
Yeah. Education, key. Get rid of your air fresheners. Next, you kind of already talked about this. For number five, under the roof, we wanted to talk about mold. We felt like it should be in its own category.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. I do because it’s – so many people today are very, very sick and don’t know why. It’s because of mold – even the inability to lose weight. Mold really affects a hormone called leptin. Leptin receptors are in the brain on the hypothalamus. Those are receptors that regulate how often our body says its ready to eat, hunger, not hungry. Leptin receptors, when they activate, they literally tell our body to burn fat for energy. It really plays into that.

Biotoxins that are produced from mold affect that hormone, and it really causes weight loss resistance. Really, it disrupts all the hormone pathways. A lot of people have just pain, unexplained pain. When we think of mold, we think of the mold allergy. We’re not talking about an allergy here. We’re talking about biotoxic illness, chronic fatigue, can’t sleep, hormone disruption, like I said, chronic pain that comes and goes.

Meredith:
Connecting so many things.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah – connected to so many things, weight loss resistance. A lot of unexplainable illnesses happen from mold. Look, if you are living in a home that the basement gets wet every once in a while, you have a mold issue.

Meredith:
Is this just black mold or is this all kinds of mold?

Dr. Pompa:
There’s dangerous molds. There’s a toxic top five, if you will, of dangerous molds, Aspergillus, of course Stachybotrys. There’s a few other ones. We talked about them on the show. I can’t remember all five of them that he mentioned on the show with Dan Howard.

Meredith:
Long names – yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
Clostridium, there’s another one. The point is that these are toxic molds, unlike mildew that we would sometimes see. Not every mold is toxic, but these molds that go amplified when we have a slow leak under a counter, a wet basement. Most mold – this is important – you don’t see. It’s like, “Oh, I don’t see mold in my house.” I can walk into a home or a business and go, “There’s mold.”

Meredith:
Wow! You have that keen of a sense after so many years.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely. Absolutely. So many years, you smell it, and I walk out. Look, even though I don’t have the level of sensitivity I used to have, I still know that mold is bad for everybody. That’s an important point, too. You get four people living in the same house. One or two get very sick, and the other ones aren’t sick yet. Some people genetically are more sensitive or have less of an ability to get rid of these biotoxins. Some people’s bucket is already full from other toxic exposures, heavy metals, amalgams, all these other things. Their bucket overflows. The mold in that home becomes such a problem for them that they’re sick. They don’t know why.

They leave the home; they feel better, but yet, not completely better because the mold has bioaccumulated in their body, or the biotoxins stayed in the body in deep tissue, and also turned on certain genes that need to be turned off. That’s where the 5 Rs comes in. A lot of the 5 Rs of cellular healing is about turning off the bad genes that have been expressed. I think we’ve had some of the products – oh! I never went in and got them, but I’m going to reach over here.

Meredith:
Oh. You’re going to grab the CytoDetox?

Dr. Pompa:
That guy walking out the door can go grab a CytoDetox for us and throw us that. Thank you, customer. There’s two products in here called GCell and Bind. The Bind really grabs these biotoxins in the gut – thank you – as they’re dumped. These biotoxins bind up the bile in the liver that are dumped in the gut. This Bind is utilized to grab them so you don’t reabsorb them. The GCell really moves the biotoxins from the cell. The CytoDetox, we didn’t used to have this in the past. This grabs biotoxins. It grabs a lot of heavy metals, as well.

Meredith:
-inaudible- so many toxins.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. It also crosses into the cell. When we bring it to the gut, so we don’t reabsorb it, Bind grabs it. I look at these three as our little biotoxic pathway. Again folks, this will pull it out of the body after you leave the home. If you’re taking this and you still live in a moldy home, this is bad. Watch the episode. We’ve done a few episodes on mold, how to make your home safe with Dan Howard. Watch those episodes.

If you have water, you have mold. This is important, and this talks about fresh air, really, too. Many people have mold in their home just because your humidity level’s too high. Anything really above 50, you’re forming mold, potentially.

Meredith:
Above 50 – okay.

Dr. Pompa:
If it gets above 60, you have mold just because of humidity.

Meredith:
Wow!

Dr. Pompa:
Air conditioning systems alone can’t drop the level. When I lived here in Pittsburgh, I always had a dehumidifier. Dan Howard, in that other episode, talks about a dehumidifier bringing that level down below 50, even 45 or below. Therefore, we’re not forming mold just on humidity alone.

Meredith:
Good to know. You want it below 50 with the dehumidifier.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah.

Meredith:
Great.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. Again, also, there’s ERVs that bring in fresh air, bring out fresh air. That helps, also, keep humidity down.

Meredith:
What’s that stand for again, the ERV?

Dr. Pompa:
Energy return ventilator.

Meredith:
Energy return ventilator – great. Those past mold episodes are 73, 75, and 93 as reference, so check those out, too, to get informed and educated on mold. All right. Before we move on, we’ve got the top five under your rooftop toxic five. Household cleaners, number one; furniture, carpets, and appliances, number two; number three, water; number four, air, and number five, mold, a category all of its own. All right. Great. Moving on. Next, we have, to finish the top 10, we have the top five under your nose. This should be interesting. All right.

Dr. Pompa:
I like this.

Meredith:
Number six, this is a massive topic, but food. Where do we start with the toxins in our food?

Dr. Pompa:
I think today we start with glyphosate.

Meredith:
Okay.

Dr. Pompa:
This is one of the things that I think we’ll – some years ago, when we did the toxic top 10, we didn’t know a lot about. Recently, I just had the privilege of interviewing Stephanie Seneff. She’s the senior scientist at MIT, one of them. She has published many papers on the damaging effects of glyphosate. What is glyphosate?

Glyphosate is the number one herbicide/pesticide used ubiquitous in our food supply. Now, it’s in all of us, folks. It is basically on every non-organic product being used. It causes holes in our gut according to her studies. According to her studies, it affects a -inaudible- pathway that makes – we make a lot of our brain chemicals, if you will, neurotransmitters, things that our – chemicals our brain needs to work, serotonin, dopamine. You’re familiar with some of these things that make us feel good. We make them in our gut.

This chemical is destroying certain bacteria that we need to make those. It’s affecting our gut and our brain, which, by the way, this is our second brain, it’s called.

Meredith:
Wow! Makes sense.

Dr. Pompa:
It’s causing leaky gut, which leads to autoimmune, just people in general just feeling bad, food allergies, food sensitivities. Glyphosate causes this. It causes this brain not to work. It’s linked to dementia. It’s linked to autism. It’s linked to diabetes. It’s linked to heart disease because it disrupts this stuff called cholesterol sulfate. Look, watch the show, the interview with Stephanie Seneff.

Meredith:
Number 96.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. There you go, episode 96. If you don’t have value for getting this out of your life and your children’s life, you will after that show. This science is solid. This stuff is poison. Listen, it is being sprayed on every grain, or conventional grain to desiccate it, meaning – it’s called desiccation, meaning to harvest it to increase profits because it makes it easier to harvest. It even increases the yield. That’s why it’s being sprayed on everything. Of course, it’s being sprayed on every plant, vegetable.

GMO, genetically modified organisms, are literally being designed by the company who makes glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in Roundup, by the way. They’re the ones that make the chemical. Oh, they’re the ones that develop GMO soybeans, GMO corn, and it’s every –

Meredith:
All subsidized.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely, yeah.

Meredith:
It’s cheap.

Dr. Pompa:
They’re genetically modifying these plants to take massive amounts of this chemical. If you’re eating GMO, you’re taking in a massive amount of this chemical that causes these health effects.

Meredith:
They’re genetically engineering and modifying the foods to be sprayed with this. Then we eat it; causes massive, massive health effects. It’s really shocking.

Dr. Pompa:
She said something on the show that I found interesting. She said, “If you really look at the statistics on obesity and when America and other countries became obese,” she said, “Around 1975, it exactly correlates with when we started using glyphosate in our food supply, in our environment.”

She believes that, and just like these other diseases, dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, as glyphosate increased, so does these conditions. She talks about how it actually exemplifies, makes worse the toxicity of heavy metals and other toxins. It allows the heavy metals to cross into the brain, into the nerve tissue, much faster. Glyphosate makes other toxins more toxic, especially heavy metals, and a lot of her research shows that.

Meredith:
Wow. So scary. Eat organic, 100% if possible.

Dr. Pompa:
Worth every penny to do so. Avoid GMOs. If you can’t afford all organic, at least eat from the food that aren’t sprayed as often. I think in some of the past shows, we even talked about that.

Meredith:
Yeah. Anything else on food you want to mention, the fats, the toxic fats?

Dr. Pompa:
Vegetable oil, I think, again, it’s ubiquitous in our food supply. You go in Whole Foods or other health food stores, and you see canola oil, and vegetable oils, and everything. It is a toxic fat that drives inflammation, cellular inflammation.

Meredith:
Why do people think canola oil’s healthy?

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, right. Right. It’s rapeseed oil. It really is a rancid oil that really does drive inflammation. It’s not healthy. Get rid of the toxic oils, the toxic fats. I’m a believer in eating grass-fed because toxic fat forms in animals that don’t eat grass. Cows that are meant to eat grass are eating grain. It makes a toxic fat that we’re eating. It’s not that meat is bad; it’s what man has done to it. It’s not that dairy is bad; it’s what man has done to it. We start a cow by eating grain, so that denatures the ratios of the fats right off the bat.

Meredith:
Shouldn’t be eating in the first place.

Dr. Pompa:
We’re giving it antibiotics, steroids, hormones, which we ingest, not to mention other drugs and medications they’re giving to cows, which ends up in the meat and the milk. Then we’re homogenizing, pasteurizing the milk. It is the most dangerous food on the planet when dairy done right is one of the healthiest foods on the planets. Totally denatured – anyways, there’s toxic food.

Meredith:
Yeah. That goes along with the three components of your cellular healing diet, as well. Nix the conventional grains, get rid of the toxic fats, and upgrade to high quality animal protein, only grass-fed and organic.

Dr. Pompa:
Three simple exchanges, no doubt about it.

Meredith:
Yep. There you go, cellular healing diet. All right. Number seven, the ones underneath your nose, well, topic near and dear to your heart, amalgam fillings.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s how I got sick. Most people watching this know my story. Yeah. Fifty percent of a silver filling is mercury, despite what your dentist says. It’s not anyone’s opinion. It’s not his opinion or my opinion. It is proven that these things leach mercury the life of the filling. World Health Organization said, “Hey, it’s not fit to be put in humans.” When they looked at the studies, study after study shows that this stuff is toxic.

A study was published in -inaudible-, which is one of the most prestigious scientific journal on the planet, showed that the number of fillings that you have in your mouth is proportional to how much they find in the brain. A direct study showed the number of fillings in mom’s mouth was proportional to how much mercury they found in the baby’s brain on autopsies.

When they take the fetus and they look at how much mercury is in the brain, it was proportional to many fillings mom had in her mouth. Amalgam fillings, right under your nose, massive mercury. The vapor from that mercury is going into your brain every day. It is, in fact, right under your nose. Look, I always say, “Don’t insult our intelligence.” Before that silver filling goes in your mouth, it’s handled. It was hazardous waste, all the guidelines from OSHA, handled that in the dental office. It’s hazardous waste.

The moment it goes in your mouth, it’s now considered safe by the American Dental Association. Now, the moment it comes out, it’s handled as hazardous waste again. Literally, it changes categories. Ultimately, it is more dangerous in your mouth because it’s an acid environment.

Meredith:
It’s hot, too.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely, and we’re drinking how liquids, brushing our teeth, causing it to vaporize more. The moment it comes out and hits that dental tray, now it’s hazardous waste again. Don’t insult our intelligence. Don’t tell me it’s safe in here when it’s not safe out here according to all environmental experts. They’re ridiculous.

Meredith:
Wow.

Dr. Pompa:
Listen, don’t run and just get these filling out. We have a pre-protocol that we do. We have, obviously, dentists who do it safely, protecting the person, protecting themselves.

Meredith:
IAOMT.org is the website where you can go and find a biological dentist in your area. That’s I-A-O-M-T dot org.

Dr. Pompa:
Prepare the body just like we do in true cellular detox. Get it done correctly. Then four or five days after the last filling comes out, then we can start actually, really, true metal detox, which by the way, you do true metal detox, it should never be done with one of those fillings in your mouth. You will eventually get more sick because of trying to pull mercury out of the body. It will eventually start to pull it from the filling. Caution: Be aware of that.

I believe that no one will reach their level, their goal of health, with silver fillings in their mouth. I think that most countries have banned them, are banning them, except right here in the good old United States of America. We are still putting these filling in, and that saddens me. Not every year, but almost every year, before congress, there’s an outcry. They bring out a complete ban on these fillings, and every year, the ADA somehow pushes it through, that it doesn’t get banned.

Meredith:
Are they cheaper? Why are they still – that’s why? Bottom line.

Dr. Pompa:
It’s cheap. It’s cheaper. There was a past show that we did with Dr. Grieco here in Pittsburgh.

Meredith:
Episode number 30.

Dr. Pompa:
What was it?

Meredith:
I think it’s episode number 30. We have past shows – number one and number two on Cellular Healing TV, the very beginning shows referenced amalgam fillings, as well. Check those out in the archives.

Dr. Pompa:
Episode one, two, thirty – yep. You talked about the backlash, the ADA being afraid of the backlash if we say that these are hazardous waste, which they should be categorized at – by the way, that’s what goes before congress every year. Let’s call this what it is, hazardous waste. The moment they do, now, all of a sudden, it has to be banned putting it in humans. Then is there going to be lawsuits because many people, like myself, lost their lives?

I developed massive chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivity. I would have never gotten well if I didn’t start here, getting these out safely. Once those came out, I started to be able to get the mercury out of where? The brain. That’s where it goes. It goes deep into the brain. That’s why my hormones were disregulated. That’s why my thyroid wasn’t working right. Despite my efforts on getting my adrenals and my thyroid to work, it wouldn’t happen. You have to get to the source, as we’re talking about today, in our life and here.

Meredith:
So many people don’t make the connection between the amalgams and all these other health challenges. Just like you said, the mold can cause weight loss resistance. So many of us don’t make that connection. Wow. Wow – getting to the source.

Dr. Pompa:
Biotoxins from mold and mercury from amalgams are what I call the Big Boys, meaning that if you’re sick, you don’t know why, or you can’t lose weight, or you don’t feel well, your energy – it’s typically one of those. They shut down detox pathways, and now you start accumulating all of these other toxins that we’re talking about, the toxins that are in your home, that you’re using in your make-up, which we’re getting to, the water, etcetera.

Meredith:
Yeah. Wow. Okay. Number eight, another hot topic, vaccines. We just did a recent show on this – well, not too recent, episode number 57 to dig back in the archives. Let’s talk about vaccines and the problem.

Dr. Pompa:
-inaudible-. I think we even did a flu shot episode.

Meredith:
We did. We did. That’s 57.

Dr. Pompa:
That would be right in this – more recent in this category. Flu shots still contain at least 25 micrograms of mercury. We’re getting them every year. I quoted in a lecture that I did recently, Hugh – gosh, he’s the most quoted biologist on the planet, eight hundred-and-some reference journals. He is the world’s leading biologist, immunologist, and a brilliant guy.

He said in his study, five consecutive flu shots in a 10-year period increased your chance of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s in other studies tenfold. Hey, we’re doing a live show.

Meredith:
Hello.

Dr. Pompa:
We just had a customer walk in.

Meredith:
Hi.

Customer:
Hi.

Meredith:
Welcome.

Dr. Pompa:
We’re actually doing a Cellular Healing TV show. Do you ever watch Cellular Healing TV?

Customer:
No.

Dr. Pompa:
You should. There you go.

Customer:
I should.

Dr. Pompa:
We actually said, “We’re doing a live show, and a customer may walk in.” One did. She’ll be down to help you.

-inaudible-.

Dr. Pompa:
Anyway, that’s a staggering statistic. Literally, five consecutive flu shots in a 10-year period, 10 times increase in dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, -inaudible- diseases.

Meredith:
Scary. So many are getting them.

Dr. Pompa:
Vaccines, it’s not just about mercury. They took out mercury in many vaccines; however, they still contain aluminum, other chemicals like formaldehyde, and many other problematic things, aborted fetal tissue, propylene glycol, which is antifreeze.

Meredith:
Ugh! Why are they putting this in the vaccines?

Dr. Pompa:
They have to attenuate. They have to kill off the viruses. They have to protect it from other bacterias, and they also have to drive the immune system, to activate the immune system because that’s how the vaccines work. These toxins, they actually stimulate the immune system to actually – that’s how they raise up the temporary immunity.

I don’t want to do a whole show on vaccines. Look, the point here is I’m not telling anyone not to vaccinate. What’s I’m saying is you better educate yourself.

Meredith:
Yeah. Do the research.

Dr. Pompa:
There’s two problems with vaccines. Number one, they’re extremely toxic. Look at the ingredients. Google it yourself. Number two, they stimulate the wrong immune system, which is a whole ‘nother problem, a whole ‘nother topic for another day. Check it out yourself.

Meredith:
Wow! Wow, vaccines – a lot there. Check out episode 57, too, for a little more information on that. All right. Next, number nine, huge topic, plastics. Plastic, it’s everywhere. We can’t escape it. What’s the problem with plastic?

Dr. Pompa:
I think one of the – you’re seeing everywhere is how plastics disrupt the hormone system. They’re endocrine disruptors. We talked a lot about that even in the cleaners, BPA. I love always quoting the study that – it was a Duke University study where they took BPA, and they gave it to identical twin mice. They gave it to one group, not the other. What happened was this group that they gave it to, it turned on the agouti gene, which made them obese and some other health challenges. That was done by utilizing that BPA.

By the way, they did it in equivalent amounts that we, as humans, are exposed to, and it triggered the gene. We know BPA triggers hormones, and hormones can cause weight loss resistance, people not to feel well, the whole -inaudible-.

Meredith:
BPA is a chemical in plastics.

Dr. Pompa:
It is. Right.

Meredith:
Okay.

Dr. Pompa:
You’ll see BPA –

Meredith:
Bisphenol PA, right?

Dr. Pompa:
Yes, bisphenol PA. You’ll see BPA-free, but there’s other things like fallates and other chemicals that are in plastic. That’s getting into our bodies, driving hormone problems and other problems. Where are we getting it from?

Meredith:
Where aren’t we getting it from, right?

Dr. Pompa:
We mentioned drinking water, people drinking out of plastic, right?

Meredith:
Mm-hmm, especially when heated, right?

Dr. Pompa:
That’s right. I was just going to say that. Please, don’t put hot food in Tupperware plastic and then just put it away. Hot and cold will make the chemical go into the food, and then we eat the food.

Meredith:
Even worse, microwaving in plastic.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s right.

Meredith:
See that all the time.

Dr. Pompa:
Really?

Meredith:
Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s bad. Here’s a hidden one, which I think exposed it was estimated 3,000 times the level of BPA. Canned food has a plastic in the canned food. The acidity that’s typically in canned food, and it sits there for a long time exposed to heat and different things, pulls the BPA and other fallates, other chemicals, from that coating.

Meredith:
Scary. Even if you get an organic canned food, if it doesn’t say, “BPA-free,” you’re getting that exposure.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s correct. You’re getting other plastics, if so. It used to be they did that because they were worried about the lead from the solder. Then we went to the plastic. Anyways, a big, big problem when dealing with canned food.

Meredith:
Wow!

Dr. Pompa:
I think there’s a lot of hidden sources of plastic that we don’t realize, the acidic food. You get the pizza sauce in the can, which really causes that to leach from the can, or we take the spaghetti or whatever we’re eating, put it in the Tupperware or the plastic bowl, and we’re getting exposed there.

Here’s another one: I used to catch my kids with this. They would make lemonade from 100% lemon. They would put into a plastic glass. Lemon is so acidic, if you take a Styrofoam cup – if you just take a lemon, it’ll eat through the cup. It dissolves the cup.

Meredith:
Wow – that acidic. Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. Where’s that styrene going? It’s going right into us. When you see people at picnics drinking in Styrofoam, and they’re drinking lemonade, I’m like, “Stop! That’s styrene. That’s cancer-causing.”

Meredith:
Wow! Don’t even think of it. Yeah. Styrofoam, that’s another really, really toxic – and so many of us drink hot coffee out of Styrofoam or it’s served –

Dr. Pompa:
Styrofoam, styrene, a chemical that causes cancer. Don’t do that. Use paper at least. Yep.

Meredith:
Use paper. Wow. Hot one with the plastics. Finally here, number 10, we’ve got toxic beauty products that are right under your nose.

Dr. Pompa:
Which, by the way – it comes right off of this plastic conversation.

Meredith:
Yes. Yes.

Dr. Pompa:
One of the highest exposures of BPA is toxic beauty.

Meredith:
Wow.

Dr. Pompa:
We have things like lip balm or lipstick, we’re getting, actually –

Meredith:
That’s actually an essential oil roller, but –

Dr. Pompa:
Here. Talk about that.

Meredith:
We’ve got a little ChapStick here.

Dr. Pompa:
There it is. Okay. Good. All right. I’m going to say this is lipstick or ChapStick.

Meredith:
We’ll pretend.

Dr. Pompa:
Lipstick actually contains one of the highest lead levels.

Meredith:
I’ve heard that. A lot of lead in lipstick, yes.

Dr. Pompa:
Uh-huh. Exactly.

Meredith:
Now, why are they putting lead in lipstick? It’d be in the pigment?

Dr. Pompa:
It smooths it out and makes it smooth.

Meredith:
Oh, the texture. Okay.

Dr. Pompa:
The texture.

Meredith:
Wow.

Dr. Pompa:
The BPA is absorbed whether it’s foundation, eye liner, especially these tissues around the eye are very absorbent. When you’re putting your make-up on, you’re absorbing that BPA, that hormone disruptor, right into your bloodstream. By the way, I don’t remember – I think it was 32 things of lipstick that you eat per year, meaning that –

Meredith:
Oh, yeah. You’re rubbing it in. You swallow it. Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
You ingesting that. It’s some number like that. The amount of lead that you take in, and other chemicals, is huge.

Meredith:
Wow! Eating lead – wow.

Dr. Pompa:
Eating lead. They have nontoxic lipstick today, lip balm. Make-ups today, there’s probably several that you’ve used. Whole Foods –

Meredith:
Yeah. Plenty of options for natural make-up, so there’s really no excuse.

Dr. Pompa:
Right. Yeah. Go natural, for sure.

Meredith:
Yeah. Wow.

Dr. Pompa:
Toxic beauty – give them some other hints. I don’t know. You’re the girl, not me -inaudible-.

Meredith:
Yeah. I get a lot of my make-up at Whole Foods, as well. I like the Gabriel brand. I’ve heard Rejuva and Afterglow are some other brands, as well. There’s plenty of options out there. You just have to look.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. I think that again, it’s one of those hidden sources that women, in particular, don’t realize they’re there.

Meredith:
Right.

Dr. Pompa:
I’m going to try to remember them amount of – 516 or 518 chemicals women use in the morning. Two hundred-and-some of that 500 that they’re using on average in the morning to start their daily regime –

Meredith:
Yeah. It’s not just the make-up. It’s the deodorant. It’s the body products. It’s the shampoo, the conditioner, nail polish.

Dr. Pompa:
Whatever daily routine they’re doing – 518 chemicals. Two hundred-and-some cause cancer. Starting your day that way from your skin to your bloodstream. I always do this. I’m going to steal your thing. We just talked about – and we have one more -inaudible- so we’re not done, but I’m going to show this. I don’t know if you can see this, folks. This is the bucket, remember?

Meredith:
Kind of hard to see.

Dr. Pompa:
We talked about inheriting your mom’s lead or silver fillings, the mercury that comes off of fillings. Here we are, in utero. That’s the first exposure. Then we start vaccinating. Then we move into – we have toxic homes and all these other things. Then mold exposures, I’m having trouble with it. All of these other cleaning products – everything we’re exposed to.

Meredith:
The bucket fills.

Dr. Pompa:
Then, one day, the bucket overflows, and then this is where our symptoms start. As we’re talking about these, we want to empty our buckets by true cellular detox, which, watch those episodes. We want to remove the toxins at the cellular level, but we also want to empty our buckets from what’s coming in.

All these things that we’re talking about today are filling our bucket. We have to use true cellular detox to empty our bucket, but we want to stop the fill. There. I’ve messed you up.

Meredith:
Yep. No, that’s good.

Dr. Pompa:
All right. There’s your -inaudible-.

Meredith:
Yeah.

Dr. Pompa:
I think it’s an easy illustration of as our bucket fills. Genetically, some people have bigger buckets. Some people have genetically smaller buckets.

Meredith:
We still have buckets, though.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely. Think of your cells, if there’s 70 trillion cells, think about 70 trillion little buckets that eventually, once they get filled, now we start turning on our bad genes. The bucket overflows. Now we have no energy. Now we’re not sleeping as well. Now our hormones are disrupted. Now all these symptoms that we don’t like start occurring. Really, that’s what we’re seeing today as why so many people are sick today.

Meredith:
Hello.

Dr. Pompa:
Another customer, how are you?

Meredith:
Another customer. Hello. How are you?

Dr. Pompa:
We’re just filming a show here live, a Cellular Healing TV show. We decided to do it live from our store today.

Customer:
That’s fine. I just have a -inaudible-.

Dr. Pompa:
Sure.

Meredith:
Okay, no problem.

Dr. Pompa:
Anyways, I think this was a good place to do this show because we carry most of these products.

Meredith:
We do.

Dr. Pompa:
We do have a quick bonus we have to talk about.

Meredith:
We do have the bonus.

Dr. Pompa:
We talked about it in the past show with Robby, and it’s electromagnetic frequencies.

Meredith:
The EMFs.

Dr. Pompa:
The EMFs – a.k.a. EMFs, which is – today, this is new, hidden toxin that we are all being exposed to. If your bucket is close to being full, and all of a sudden, you’re exposing yourself with your cell phone, this makes you very vulnerable to this electromagnetic frequency that’s driving cellular inflammation. It’s being linked to cancer, being linked to tumors, very, very dangerous. Again, who is it affecting? Those people that are exposed to a lot of other toxins.

Meredith:
Wow. They are everywhere. Electronics are everywhere, so we can’t escape it.

Dr. Pompa:
That’s the point. We didn’t put it in under your roof or under your nose because it’s both.

Meredith:
It’s both.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah. Right under your nose is your cell phone, and right under your roof is obviously the EMF that’s coming from everything.

Meredith:
The electronics, computers, the TV, everything.

Dr. Pompa:
TVs everywhere, moving fans. We are exposed to levels that never have man been exposed to. It is a challenge. It’s another reason why we have to keep these other toxins that we can control out of our life and out of our cells. It gives a reason why true cellular detox is so important and why you’d have to detox your life.

Meredith:
Yeah, R number 1.

Dr. Pompa:
It’s R number 1, detox your life and detox your cells. If you haven’t watched “True Cellular Detox,” we’ve written articles about it, and we’ve done many shows here about it. That’s real detox. Most detox out there is not real. If the person isn’t telling you to clean up your life and stop the sources, then that’s not a good one.

Meredith:
It’s not real. It’s not real detox.

Dr. Pompa:
Yeah, it’s not real. Exactly.

Meredith:
Wow. Just a little, quick recap. The five under your roof: Household cleaners; furniture, carpets, and appliances, number two; number three, water; number four, air, and number five, mold, the topic all on its own. Then the five toxins under your nose, we have food, number six; number seven is amalgam fillings; number eight, vaccines; number nine, plastics, and number 10, toxic beauty, so a lot here. You can’t be expected to change overnight, but really, education and knowledge is power. Really just knowing that this is the first step, and slowing removing these things from your life is really when you’re going to see the changes in your health.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely. There you have it. I think this is one of the most important shows we’ve done. Detox your life. I almost said, “Detox your wife,” just to be smart. That’s a good idea, too. I’ve done that.

Meredith:
Maybe that, too. If your wife is toxic – right?

Dr. Pompa:
I’ve done that. My wife had a lot of lead, which disrupted her hormones, so I detoxed my life, but most important thing I did was detox your wife.

Meredith:
There you go.

Dr. Pompa:
Wives, detox your husbands.

Meredith:
Yes – goes both ways.

Dr. Pompa:
Absolutely. Detox your life. We can at least tell you that.

Meredith:
All right, everybody, thanks for watching. We’ll see you next time. Go out there and detox your life. All right. Take care.
