Think of the tiny doses at which birth control prevents reproduction. For example, one popular birth control can prevent reproduction at 0.035 parts per billion (ppb).

For perspective, it has been found that a fetus exposed to 5 ppb of PCBs, which is commonly found in our environment and food supply, in utero can experience "adverse brain development, and attention and IQ deficits that appear to be permanent (Chemical Industry Archives 2009; Schettler et al. 2000),” as explained in A to Z of D-Toxing. “Five parts per billion is equivalent to one drop of water in 118 bathtubs.”

Furthermore, when chemicals mix—like fumes from different cleaning products—they can create unintentional effects that can pose harm. What's empowering, however, is that some of these chemicals (like BPA) can exit our bodies in as little as 4-6 hours. So, if we decrease our exposures, we can decrease our body burden, which decreases our health risks.
