(NaturalHealth365) When it comes to environmental toxins, most people would recognize the dangers associated with pesticides, exhaust fumes, and contaminated water. But, even to this day, the general population is not aware of the toxic metals in our food supply – mainly because there are no labeling requirements.

Although heavy metals seem to be everywhere, there are many things we can do to protect ourselves from harm. Naturally, to avoid heavy metal toxicity and improve your health, eating a diet mainly comprised of unprocessed foods is a good place to start. →

ALLIANCE FOR NATURAL HEALTH,
Many of us are told that the development of diabetes is a personal failure. New research shows us why this couldn’t be more wrong. Action Alert!
Intriguing research into the diabetes epidemic has shed new light on the main drivers behind this disease. Conventional wisdom tells us that sugar consumption, lack of exercise, and obesity are behind the surge in diabetes. While these are contributing factors, new work in this area implicates environmental toxins as a far more important cause of diabetes, including chemicals like BPA and phthalates that are found in many everyday consumer goods. And while the evidence mounts demonstrating the toll these chemicals are taking on our health, the government is stubbornly refusing to do anything about it. →

(Prepare For Change) China is an agricultural powerhouse and one of the biggest exporters in the world when it comes to food but are their organic foods as organic as we expect them to be? Well, to be completely honest the use of the word organic couldn’t be more unrealistic.
Because most of what we eat seems to come from China we can assume when it comes to their food safety issues things are rippling down to us as well.
