About this course

Dr Joseph Pizzorno has recently said “Toxicity is the primary driver of disease” and “Toxicity is the new normal”.

Joe has been conducting some very large research projects and uses a mathematical analysis of the data to find associations. He has come up with some very good data on disease causation.

Some of his findings indicate that:

  • 50% of diabetes is due to phthalates, arsenic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Almost 45% of Alzheimer’s is due to DDT
  • Arsenic is responsible for 31% of prostate cancer
  • Over 40% of gout in women is arsenic related
  • PCBs have a high association with heart attacks

As our increasingly toxic world creates problems with our metabolism, we need to keep up. Our patient pictures are becoming more complex and their conditions are becoming more difficult to unravel. This course will help us make more sense of what we’re seeing, and what to do about it.

Joe Pizzorno and Wendy Ellis have prepared a short course of two webinars on the major chemicals causing metabolic problems. The show us how to recognise the sources, prevent exposure and how to remove them.
