Did you know the average person may have up to 700 harmful chemicals in their body at any given time? Whether it’s exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide or ozone in busy cities or increased exposure to pesticides in rural America, the truth about these common toxins may surprise you.
Dr. Jeffrey Morrison, among other health professionals, agrees that common toxins found in our foods could be the catalyst behind feelings of exhaustion, joint and muscle pain, weight gain, and even rapid aging. Pesticides found in non-organic foods are absorbed into our bodies and affect the way our cells work which can leave us feeling tired and sick.
Pesticides are used in mass produced foods to diminish damage to the crop from bugs as well as other pesky plants like weeds. One common misconception is that simply washing foods prior to eating or preparing them will protect the consumer when in reality even cooking or boiling the food is often not enough to eliminate the health risks.
Food pesticides leave residue on produce that, despite your best efforts, may impact the health and over all well-being of you and your family. In the Food Quality Protection Act the EPA describes what is considered to be a tolerable amount of pesticide residue as foods with “reasonable certainty of no harm”.
When it comes to the health of you and your family, “reasonable certainty” simply doesn’t pass the Passanante’s Home Food Service quality test. Choosing clean, wholesome and organic foods is the only way to eliminate these harmful chemicals from your diet.
