There is an increasing body of evidence shedding light on how the environment and chemical body burden (also referred to as Total Load) (as opposed to purely our genetic makeup) are contributing to an uptick in chronic disease. There is an intimate connection between chemical body burden and increased risk of mortality.
Through the study of epigenetics, we can see how environmental factors such as environmental pollutants, psychosocial stressors, our microbiota, dietary constituents, and physical factors may contribute to health or disease.
In her article, The Pandemic and the Elephant in the Room, MADE SAFE advisor Dr. Anne Marie Fine shares how the manifestation of our toxic environment into chronic disease is a major player in the risk for COVID-19. Environmental factors that contribute to chronic disease can help set the stage for weakened immune functioning and, subsequently, a higher rate of serious illness and even loss of life during this time.
