Food can either harm, help or heal. See what the evidence says about YOUR daily intake.
RATE YOUR FOOD
Building our diets around GREEN-RATED foods is the most effective way to reduce our exposure to toxins. While buying organic foods is certainly preferable, understanding where toxins originate and reside is equally important, especially if buying organic is a financial burden. Toxins are stored in body fat, including the fat in meat, dairy, fish and eggs. They originate from the herbicides and pesticides that are sprayed on animal feed and also end up in waterways that contaminate fish and shellfish. The best way to protect ourselves from toxins is to stop consuming RED-RATED foods, and purchase all your food from resources you trust.
