Part of these terms refere to the upcoming Assessment that we will be offering.

Liability

We say this so as to encourage evryone to contribute without any fear of legal action.

What we don't do

We don't diagnose you for any medical conditions or imply in any way that your exposures are causing or have caused any medical or health conditions. There is plenty of work and research out there that is doing just that.

We don't take responsibility for what you do with the information we provide. Nor do the good folks who have spent thousands of man-hours researching and collating data that we use in toxno. We do however make every effort to ensure data accuracy and provide references to all data sources we use.

We do hope to influence you by encouraging reflection and thinking by providing educational information.

Limitations of this work

Do we present ALL potential daily exposure routes of toxins and chemicals? NO, not yet. At toxno we also are prioritising where to begin. Focus is on common exposure pathways based on where we spend the most time, what we do the most and what we buy. This boils down to our Home, our Workplace, kids School and where and how we Play.

Are ALL chemicals or substances shown within a particular exposure route? NO, not yet, but we are working very hard to expand this as much as possible based on current available data and research and industry declaration. However, all chemicals within a product are not required to be declared by manufacturing companies. Some can be classed as trade secrets.

Does a HIGH level of exposure to a potentially harmful toxin or substance indicate automatically that you will experience an adverse health effect like disease, cancer or reproduction issues? NO There are other factors involved like genetics, your current and past detoxification capabilities, your gut health, your immune system, nutrient sufficiency, diet, exercise, sauna, sweating and others.

Does a LOW level of exposure to a potentially harmful toxin or substance indicate automatically that you will NOT have an adverse health effect like disease, cancer or reproduction issues? NO. There are other factors involved like genetics, your current and past detoxification capabilities, your gut health, your immune system, nutrient sufficiency, diet, exercise, sauna, sweating and others.

However, it is important to realise that a low dose of a chemical when combined with low doses of other chemicals will create a combined or synergistic effect that can be more harmful than the effect from one of the low dose substances on its own. Additionally some chemicals accumulate or are stored in the body over time.

Could we overestimate your exposure to a nasty substance?

Yes. Within each exposure category are many products that we buy or interact with. All products don't contain the same chemicals but we do know that within a particular category of exposure there are known chemicals and toxins. We don't focus on any one product, as there are many websites and organisations out there that do this. One of the main objectives of toxno is that we help you know that nasty's potentially exist within a common daily exposure route.

Rather than avoiding the whole category of products within this exposure route (although sometimes it may be best to do just that) you can then investigate deeper into the ingredients within those products you really want to use.

Could we underestimate your exposure to a nasty substance?

Yes. But this is what is already happening. This is the main reason toxno has come into existence. So we don't underestimate our daily exposure to potentially nasty compounds. We want to raise awareness of these potential exposures – focusing on the ones you can do something about. Does anyone on this earth, currently know everything we are exposed to? Does anyone know the consequences of all these accumulating substances in our bodies and our environment? Absolutely not, but here at toxno we are very clear that the individual has to be able start somewhere. Hence toxno. Know your potential exposures and begin to say NO.
