Did you know that many “healthy” — even organic — foods contain a contaminant that’s a deadly toxin? It’s true. And worse, this toxin is almost impossible to avoid. It can cause liver cancer and contribute to hepatitis.
You’ve probably heard about this toxin before. It’s a fungus called aflatoxin, previously associated primarily with peanuts. Well, aflatoxin is in many more foods than peanuts.
It’s common on grains, including corn, and legumes, such as soybeans and peanuts. And it’s even in livestock feed and the food products they produce.
You can’t raise foods without getting some contaminants in them. So we all have contaminants in our body. I’ve talked with you in the past about how you can pull heavy metals and other toxic substances out of your body. All you have to do is use modified citrus pectin and sodium alginate, which are available together in Pectasol Chelation Complex. But it would be far better to block the absorption of aflatoxin in the first place. And now there’s a way to do just that.
Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?
Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

All you have to do is get plenty of chlorophyll in your diet.
Researchers at Oregon State University tested chlorophyll on aflatoxin absorption. They gave small amounts of aflatoxin to a few human volunteers. (To keep the contamination risk low, these volunteers took just 1/30th the amount of aflatoxin allowed in a peanut butter sandwich.) Then they measured the rate at which their bodies absorbed this contaminant.
Next, they gave the same amount of aflatoxin along with chlorophyll to the same volunteers. This time the aflatoxin absorption was severely limited. In fact, it was unable to get into the bloodstream.
Chlorophyll is found in all green vegetables. If you eat enough of them, you may be successfully blocking the aflatoxin in your diet. The problem is no one knows just how many leafy greens it takes to protect you from this contaminant. We need more research.
But you don’t have to wait for the research. One simple solution is to take a green supplement high in chlorophyll. There are many on the market from liquids and powders to tablets. You can add powders to a smoothie or even mixed into your morning cereal. Or you may want to take chlorophyll in tablet form to avoid its taste, which some people find unpleasant.
Chlorella is an algae high in antioxidants that detoxifies numerous contaminants from chemicals to toxic metals. One product that’s particularly high in chlorophyll is King Chlorella. Its manufacturers grow it on filtered water that’s free from contaminants and strictly monitored to make sure every batch is toxin-free. You can order King Chlorella simply by following this link. You may want to include it in your daily supplement regime — unless, of course, you eat lots of broccoli, kale, Swiss chard, and other green vegetables every day. Of course, I know vegetarians who take King Chlorella to make sure they’re as free from contaminants as possible.
