The world is a trash can, the liver is a filter
A client that ordered the Lovaliver™ supplement to help with their liver contacted me to complain about the strong scent. The customer thought that they received a defective bottle and asked to have it exchanged.
I explained that the product owes its powerful scent to the amino acid L-cysteine. Here’s why: this amino acid contains sulfur. This stinky ingredient plays an important role by helping to produce collagen, which makes it an excellent product to support the liver, especially when combined with alpha-lipoic acid, choline, and methionine, another amino acid essential to help our body to make proteins. When taking Lovaliver™, I also recommend taking all doses after a full meal and a full glass of water, otherwise it can create heartburn.
Later that day, I went home and started watching the evening news. Once again, I was reminded of the ongoing tragedy of destruction of the environment, thousands poisoned by pollution and an uncontrolled increase in the incidence of not only cancer, but also cirrhosis, hepatitis, infertility and Parkinson disease.
Yesterday, the news was about South Africa, currently struggling with a dirty dilemma – what to do with half a million tons of toxic waste. A state transportation company was awaiting approval from the government to dump asbestos in the country’s Northern Cape province.
However, this plan started to draw public attention and angry residents concerned about public health started to riot against it. Unfortunately, it takes an uprising of those that are directly affected by the millions of tons of toxic waste for this case to finally make the news. South Africa may seem far to us, but just last month a similar event occurred in Tunisia, where the environmental cause used to be relatively
unpursued until now. “Al-sha’b yureed al-bi’a esselima” or “The people want a clean environment,” the protesters chanted as they marched around this city of Gabes, perched halfway between Tunis and the Libyan border, known for having the highest rate of pollution and cancer in all of Tunisia.
Adapting the Arab Spring slogan invented in Tunisia to local environmental justice, the protesters shouted: “At-tlawath, degage,”or “pollution, get out”. Their signs in Arabic, French and English revolve around the ecological catastrophe their community has faced over the past 40 years: rising infertility, common miscarriages, habitat destruction – and deaths. In the early 1970s, the Tunisian Chemical Group started building a phosphate-refining complex north of Gabes to manufacture and export fertilizers and preservatives. Trains delivered raw phosphate, mined from towns such as Gafsa and Rhedheyef in Tunisia’s interior, to be processed and then loaded onto ships bound for global markets – Europe primarily. But the phosphogypsum waste from the wet-acid refining process is radioactive, containing uranium and radium. Today, locals call the beach called Chott al-Mout, “The Death Shore”.
Pollution is present everywhere and no one escapes its effect. We are literally born already affected by pollution. A study conducted in England a few years ago showed that the umbilical cord of babies could hold nearly 200 chemicals. And Dr. Mirko Beljanski demonstrated that environmental toxins have a CUMULATIVE effect on our DNA, inducing a progressive destabilization that can lead to cancer.
Even if it might be initially unpleasant, it is therefore worth taking good care of your liver. However we have to remember to be careful – some people with sensitive organisms can sometimes experience an unpleasant shock similar to intoxication. In this case it is better to take more gentle products such as Colonet™ or Signature Chelate.
