The human body is exposed daily to a multitude of harmful substances in the environment. These substances can impair its proper functioning and lead to the long-term development of certain pathologies.
Globally, environmental contamination is nowadays of alarming proportions. In fact, we are in permanent contact with chemical pollutants : there are currently more than 120 000 in Europe, and their number is constantly growing. Every year, thousands of new chemicals are introduced into our environment, in our food (preservatives and chemical dyes, residues of pesticides or herbicides, antibiotics, nitrates and other carcinogenic agents …) as well as in our consumer products ( cosmetics, packaging …), while their safety has, for the majority of them, not been demonstrated.
