How to Protect Yourself from Pesticide, Fertilizers, Preservatives and etc.?

Pesticides and fertilizer

Although there is no way to avoid the danger of toxins entirely but certain precaution can dramatically reduce your exposure to them.

Here's what you gonna do:

* Eat a wide variety of foods. Limiting yourself to a small number of foods, again and again, is risky since any single food can be a source of toxins. Balance your exposure to food toxins by eating a wide variety of foods.
* Eat more fiber. Fiber not only speeds the passage of dangerous toxins through the intestinal tract, it also binds and neutralizes them before they do damage. Eat more oats-oat based bread and cereal products.

* Peel fruits and vegetables- Pesticide residues are thrown out with the peel. Remove the outer leaves of cabbage, lettuce, kale, endive, spinach and similar vegetables.

* Keep foods refrigerated. All foods contain bacteria and storing food at room temperature causes these bacteria to multiply rapidly. To stunt the growth of bacteria, keep foods in the refrigerator or freezer.

* Wash foods that are neither peelable nor organic with warm soapy water'

* Avoid moldy nuts, grains, and seeds. Aflatoxin a mold that grows on peanuts, grains, and seeds, is a strong carcinogen.

* Avoid very hot foods and beverages. People who consume large quantities of extremely hot foods face an elevated risk of cancer. The explanation of this is that- repeated burning and healing of sensitive tissues in the mouth and throat causes alterations of DNA . and this lead to cancer.

* Avoid burned foods. "Blackened" form of steak, fish, and other protein-rich food contain highly carcinogen compounds. Eat your meats medium rather than well done except for pork, not to be undercooked but well cooked.

* Eat less liver- Liver is not only full of vitamins, minerals, and protein but also concentrated pollutants.

* Take precaution with fish. Smaller fish is safer than big fish. Salmon is surprisingly toxin-free. Avoid bluefish, striped bass, swordfish, shark, shellfish, raw fish, fish organs, fish fats and fat drippings. Eat no more than a half pound
of tuna weekly.

* Drink less alcohol. Mos form of alcohol contain impurities that possesses a risk of cancer other than other several health risks. Least risky are gin,
vodka, beer, and white wine. More risky are bourbon, whiskey, European fruit brandy, cream sherry, port wine and oriental wine. If you drink, do so in moderation.

* Avoid Foods that contain natural toxins. Eat no more than one cup of mushroom weekly. Avoid regular consumption of potato skins and parsnips.

* Watch out for risky food containers- Avoid foreign-made plates and glasswares, which may contain leaded glazes,and milk in wax cartons- choose plastic containers instead. Minimize use of canned foods, since lead, can leach from the can into the food... soft plastics, including soft drink bottles and sandwich bags. Never store food in opened cans. Chemical pesticides do not pose a danger to the average consumer. They do serve an important purpose-killing insect and preventing plant disease. They break down quickly after application. By the time produce gets to the market, its pesticide concentration is either very low or it has degraded to a nontoxic compound.

Nevertheless, use your common sense. whether you buy organically or conventionally grown produce, wash it before you eat it.

Thanks for these tips. Some of us already know these by heart it's just that from time to time we need to be reminded 'cause it's always easy to be tempted back to eating the tastier yet unhealthier foods.
