Animals and Cancer


In this video blog I discuss how cancer is impacting animals in the wild. Why is the happening? What can you to do help? Tune in and find out…

Full Script:

Any one who reads my blogs regularly or has read my book The Detox Strategy knows how much I speak about environmental toxins and our health.  We now know long term exposure to many chemicals can lead to serious health consequences, even as serious as cancer.

While cancer touches the lives of many of our family and friends, it has also become a major health concern to the world’s wildlife.  Research by the Wildlife Conservation Society is revealing that cancer is killing our wildlife at similar rates to humans.  In certain situations even threatening the survival of entire species.

Many animals living within polluted waters suffer high rates of cancerous tumors.  For example, the beluga whales in the St. Lawrence Estuary.  Cancer is one of the major causes of death and disease in these whales.  Their tissues are contaminated with high levels of industrial chemicals.  So much so that their carcasses are considered “toxic waste”.

Pollutants such as flame retardants, pesticides and fluoridated chemicals are harming arctic wildlife including polar bears, seals and birds.  We can no longer ignore the proof that our way of life is damaging the animals.

As we learn more about our own health, and take measures to reduce our toxicity, let’s keep our wildlife in mind as well.  We humans are responsible for their polluted environment and resulting health challenges.  Working together we can make improvements.
