8 Chlorinated water can destroy polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating toxins capable of free radical damage (oxidation) Chlorinated water can destroy polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating toxins capable of free radical damage (oxidation) Chlorinated water destroys much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the digestion of food and which protects the body from harmful pathogens. Chlorinated water destroys much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the digestion of food and which protects the body from harmful pathogens. These bacteria are also responsible for the manufacture of several important vitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin K. These bacteria are also responsible for the manufacture of several important vitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin K. It is not uncommon for chronic skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema to clear up or to be significantly improved by switching to unchlorinated drinking water and supplementing the diet with lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus.

15 environmental toxins such as xylene, touluene, phthalates (plasticizers), and PCBs overload an already burdened body, cause seizures and damage, and contribute to the symptoms of autistic spectrum disordersenvironmental toxins such as xylene, touluene, phthalates (plasticizers), and PCBs overload an already burdened body, cause seizures and damage, and contribute to the symptoms of autistic spectrum disorders Phthalates impact boys 4:1 over girls. This may help explain the higher rate in which boys are impacted by autism, as appearance of these chemicals corresponded to the increases in autism ratesPhthalates impact boys 4:1 over girls. This may help explain the higher rate in which boys are impacted by autism, as appearance of these chemicals corresponded to the increases in autism rates When phthalates were produced in the 1960’s only 3% of the people tested positive for them, now 97% do. It’s possible that the bioaccumulation in the environment, and in mothers, could account for the rise in autism.
