Its easy to see the more obvious and extreme forms of toxicity, such as swallowing known poisons. Less obvious are the subtler effects of many manmade toxins, and the potential impact of various foods and other allergens on the human immune system. We see evidence of increasing toxicity in the mounting incidence of allergies, immune system disorders, birth defects and genetic mutation.A toxin acts as an irritant, and the immune system can only respond by attempting to isolate and/or destroy the toxin. Once this happens, the immune system has a file on that toxin and will automatically attack it once the presence of the particular toxin is detected. Sometimes the immune system is too weak to prevail against the toxin, and the body succumbs to illness or even death. In other circumstances, a given immune system may be stronger than the contaminant, yet still use up much of the bodys vitality in combating or avoiding the effects of a poison. In many cases, the immune system is compromised, even if no overt symptoms are detected. It doesnt take many such contaminations to have a lasting effect on the bodys overall health and vitality.
