What's in you food?

I just read this blog post over at Small Notebook, and thought I'd share it with you. It is sort of unbelievable. If you are at all concerned about what you put into your body on a daily basis, check it out!

There is an article on WebMd that gives a little more light on the subject and the study. I'm not promoting downing Cokes or stuffing myself with all of those highly processed foods, but I like to know the truth and not be caught up in the hype and fear that usually surrounds these types of studies.

I just read the article at WebMD, but didn't really read anything that changed my opinion on the subject. All they seemed to say was that the FDA deemed the levels safe, but if you read the environmental health articles, they say tha the FDA has been aware of the mercury contamination for years, but ignored it. I know for a fact that the FDA is not the best source for deciding if our food is safe, so I don't think I feel any better about it!

I am completely disgusted by the things that are allowed to be put into our food (or sprayed on our food!) and have no faith whatsoever in the FDA.

We injest so, so many toxins on a daily basis that this does not surprise me but really there is no way around it. You can do the best you can do by buying organic foods, etc. but chemicals are everywhere and in everything. Our best bet is to do just that - do the best we can to keep our food & lives toxin/chemical free and to make sure you are getting the right nutrients to keep your immune system strong,and detox your kidneys and liver on a regular basis.

and I so agree that the FDA is pretty much useless!
