Last week I showed why every Detox Diet Plan is a scam, and yes I’m not exaggerating. Detox diets don’t “detox” your body, yet they charge you a premium for this. Today I’ll follow up on this topic with real information about the toxins in our food and what to do about them.
My big question: Should I really be afraid of toxins? Is my food chock full of toxins that I should vigilantly watch out for? Or am I safe?
So I did my research – over 15 hours of research without including the time to write this article. My conclusion? I’m safer than ever. There are so many things I could be worrying about but food toxins is not one of them. I’m not saying I should neglect it, it’s just that I shouldn’t worry about it.

A few weeks ago my husband and I were grocery shopping. Checking product labels, we were immediately disregarding everything that had the word “artificial” in it. We also put back on the shelf any products that contained synthetic substances.
As a consumer I had never done any research to educate myself about synthetic substances.
However, I thought, you can’t go wrong by choosing “natural,” can you? It just seems safer to choose natural over synthetic or artificial.
