Liver and Gallbladder process the fat-soluble toxins. These toxins are lipophilic (they bind easily with fat), they bio-accumulate and move up the food chain.

Examples of fat-soluble toxins:

  • Organochlorine pesticides (food)
  • Parabens (personal care products, cleaners)
  • Phthalates such as Bisphenol A (BPA)(plastics)
  • Perchloroethylene (dry cleaning)
  • Fluoride (toothpaste, water)
  • Flame Retardants (furniture)
  • Heavy metals: tin, lead (paint), mercury (dental amalgams, fish)
  • Exhaust, air pollution
  • Diesel Fuel
