When losing weight is bad for your health

You’d think that losing weight can only help you get healthier. But that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, if you’ve lost a lot of weight over a period of 10 years or more, you may have unknowingly created a toxic situation. And that can lead to high blood pressure, arthritis, and diabetes — just what you’ve been trying to avoid.

The reason for this toxicity is something called persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

POPs are toxic substances in our environment and foods. Because they break down slowly, they accumulate in our tissues. Our fat tissues. Then, when we lose weight, the fat breaks down and it frees POPs to travel through our bloodstreams. Suddenly they are able to make their way into our organs, including our brain and heart.

Researchers from South Korea looked at the blood concentration of seven POPs in 1,099 Americans. They found the most POPs in the people who lost the most weight over 10 years. Levels were lower in people who had not lost weight or who had gained weight.

The message is clear. Losing weight is healthy. Setting POPs free to contaminate your bloodstream and lead to illness is not.

This study’s researchers have no solutions to offer, but I do. You can remove POPs from your bloodstream with PectaSol Chelation Complex (PCC).

This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.

PCC contains modified citrus pectin and sodium alginate, which bind to heavy metals and POPs in the blood. You can get PCC through Advanced Bionutritionals and read more about it on my website.

Losing weight may be the best thing you can do for your health, but only if you address its underlying problems.
