The Black Magic Pharmaceutical Companies Don’t Want You to Know About

Back in the Crazy Days of Yore, activated carbon was a major weapon in my survival kit as well as my anti-aging regimen.  Its magical absorptive properties enable it to pull all kinds of toxins, poisons, free radicals etc from your body.  Some say activated carbon can also absorb bacteria and fungi…  If I’ve been exposed to too many cigarettes, truck fumes, sick children, pollution – I will make a little glass of black magic and feel much better about myself.  How much you ask?   I put 2 big spoonfuls in a glass of water and glug it back like a soldier.  It’s not caviar but it’s not the worst drink I make.  If you read my article on Himalayan mud and had the courage to try some you know my strength.

Perfluoroalkyl acids are used during the manufacture of fluoropolymers, which give non-stick heat resistance to cookware and breathable, waterproof properties to fabrics and upholstery. PFOA and PFOS may also result from the breakdown of compounds used as coating for commercial food packaging, factory treatments for fabrics and carpets and manufacturer pretreatment for stain-resistant clothing.
