In most food surplus societies, it is estimated that over 2/3 of the population is overweight or obese. This of course means that trying to lose weight is always a good thing. Is this reality? Are there cases where weight loss is a bad and dangerous thing? There is one case where losing weight is not only dangerous, but it is dangerous not to the dieter, but to the most precious creature in his life. Let's see when that might happen. Today we will talk about toxins. A toxin is anything that exists in the body more than is necessary, or than is useful. For some chemical components to be classified as toxins, their quantity in the body must be extremely large, such as some vitamins, while other substances create a problem in the functioning of the body even when they are minimal, such as dioxins and heavy metals. Even water if given to the body in large quantities can lead to death. If, for example, someone starts drinking water in extremely large quantities, it is certain that some minerals and trace elements will be depleted and this will lead to disturbances in the function of the heart and in extreme cases even death. What we have said applies here: the dose makes the poison. Nevertheless, when we refer to toxins, we typically refer to substances that create a problem for the health of the body in small quantities and we do not mean either water or vitamins. These are substances which are chemical, have been synthetically made in factories, and find their way into our bodies mainly through food and much less through water and air. These chemicals fall into two broad groups: substances that dissolve in water such as sugar and salt, which we call water-soluble, and substances that dissolve in oil, such as oils and fat, which we call liposolvents. Water-soluble toxins are generally easily eliminated from the body, mainly by the kidneys, and do not accumulate. The damage they cause only concerns the moment of exposure and a few days after. But things are complicated when it comes to fat-soluble toxins, that is, toxins that dissolve in our fat. When we consume these toxins through our diet, they are stored in fat. This is beneficial initially because it protects us from direct exposure to a large amount of toxins. On the other hand, when we lose fat and even suddenly and in a large amount, these toxins will be released and can create a big problem for our health. This is one of the reasons why no one should lose fat suddenly, because it puts their health at significant risk, although they are not the only ones. But there is a period in a woman's life when this can create a big problem for her child's health. During lactation, that is, during breastfeeding. If a woman tries to diet while breastfeeding and this results in the release of many toxins from the relatively rapid fat loss, then these toxins pass into the circulation and then into the milk that the infant is breastfed with. The infant is powerless to protect itself from these toxins because his organism was not fully developed, and it puts him at considerable risk. This is also the reason why some international organizations recommend avoiding dieting and significant fat loss during lactation. Those interested in learning more will find in the description a very important study on the subject.
