But new research may chip away at your worry-free tradition of weekly mani-pedis: A study led by the renowned Duke University as well as Public Health Advocacy Org. - Environmental Working Group urges that we absorb at least one potentially hormone-disrupting chemical every time we get a polish. While the impact of this chemical on our health is still unclear, the fact that our body can absorb chemicals through the cuticles and nail bed is cause for concern yet mothers-to-be, Thyroid patients, Cancer patients and children still routinely pay for these toxins. Researchers have found these chemicals in the majority of participants in studies on pregnant women and international samples of breast milk.

Positive and negative magnetic fields created by copper help energy flow through the body. Ionized copper was used by ancient Egypt to purify water.

Hemoglobin is necessary for the body to repair and heal itself. Copper is a vital part of the body’s healthy immune system.
