The Real Cause Of Fat Formation
« on: 10/08/2006 12:04:44 »
I've been reading a lot lately on alternative medicine sites about toxins. One common theme has to do with toxins and fat.  According to some well read authors with a lot of initials behind their name is this assertion:

"If toxins build up faster than they can be eliminated, in an attempt to protect your organs, your body will actually make body fat for the specific purpose of storing toxins as far away from vital organs as possible."

Well, I've dug out my old physiology texts and can't anything that backs that up.  Does anyone know if the body indeed will make fat to store excess toxins?  Or is that just a lot of hooey to sell cleanse products?

This being close to reality, we would see chronically intoxicated people (miners for example) grow fatter and fatter...
It sounds a bit too vague, well, it's a theory.
In my personal case I recently got few extra kiloFAT getting the very same amount of toxins but eating more, being more relaxed and riding the motorbike instead of the bicycle.
Epidemiologists could help.

b. s.

stop looking into alternative medicine, that will only steer you in the wrong direction.

And how do you know it is the wrong direction unless you look?

Never write b.s. on this forum.
It should be a rule, or a gentlemen agreement if you like.
ok?
