please can you give me some advice about something I'm extremely worried about? The room that I rent in a small shared apartment has been refurbished over the last 3 months by the landlord whilst I have been living there. Because it's cold, the Windows haven't been opened and so it has continually smelt of paint, varnish and flooring adhesive fumes. I didn't realise how bad these were for you until recently, and I'm now very worried that these chemicals will have stored in my body. Last week I was eating lunch when he was using flooding adhesive on the new kitchen floor and I'm worried that eating at the same time as this chemical was in the air will lead me to have ingested it with my food and make the exposure worse than if I had just breathed it in.
How can I remove all these toxins out of my body and how long will it take? Do I need to avoid all fat so nothing gets stored in my body? I had planned on increasing my daily calories as I wanted to join the gym and put on a lot of muscle mass, but I am very worried that putting weight on now will mean that these chemicals will get stored in my body so how long will I need to wait before it is safe for me to start putting on muscle mass and gaining weight? I'm a little bit under weight so gaining weight wouldn't be unhealthy, but it is if it means all these chemicals will get stored in my body. Please help, as I'm so worried that my body and life has been ruined. I've now moved out of the apartment and only now realise how funny my old one was, but I'm worried that it's too late. I'm not interested in suing the landlord or anything; just interested in getting healthy. Thanks so much.
