Are you eating food that’s already banned in other countries but is still allowed to poison and kill Americans? Learn these pernicious ingredients and common foods through this infographic.
Non-organic processed foods will expose you to the greatest amounts of chemicals and potential toxins, including pesticides and genetically engineered organisms (GMOs), but virtually all non-GMO whole foods will tend to be contaminated with pesticides to some degree as well. To reduce your family exposure to glyphosate and other toxic chemicals, please consider the following advice:
Buy organic fruits and vegetables. Non-organic fruits and vegetables most likely to be grown using pesticides include apples, peaches, celery, and potatoes. For a full list of the most and least contaminated produce, please see the Environmental Working Group shoppers Guide to Pesticides.
Add fermented foods to your diet. The lactic acid bacteria formed during the fermentation of kimchi may help your body break down pesticides, so including fermented foods can be a wise strategy to help your body natural detoxification processes. Also make sure you are getting enough fiber in your diet, as it too plays an important role in detoxification.
Choose seafood wisely. Opt for low-mercury fish varieties, such as wild caught Alaskan salmon, anchovies, and sardines, and avoid farm-raised fish, which are often heavily contaminated with PCBs and mercury. To optimize your omega-3, you may also consider taking a krill oil supplement.
Filter your tap water.Municipal water supplies can be contaminated with any number of potential toxins, so filtering your water is always a wise idea. Be particularly mindful of avoiding fluoridated water when preparing infant formula.
Replace your non-stick pots and pans with ceramic or glass cookware.
Avoid plastic food containers, bottles, and mugs.Instead, opt for glass, ceramic, or stainless steel varieties.

Check your school/employer pest control policy. If they have not already done so, encourage your school district/employer to move to Integrated Pest Management, which uses less toxic alternatives.
Switch to organic personal care products,and avoid using artificial air fresheners, dryer sheets, fabric softeners, or other synthetic fragrances. Any product containing fragrance will typically contain high levels of endocrine disrupting phthalates.
New science is showing that toxic compounds called obesogens could be at the very root of the obesity epidemic, and may be silently sabotaging your weight loss attempts. Today.
One of the most disturbing discoveries in the past decades has been that chemicals in our food and our environment are actually obesity promoters. Known as endocrine disrupters, these chemicals mimic what hormones in our body do.
Obesogens are chemicals that hijack hormonal pathways, sending messages to cells to store fat and generally disrupting the regulatory system that helps control appetite and weight.
They can do this by increasing your number of fat cells, by lowering the number of calories you burn, and by playing havoc with the mechanisms (like the hormone leptin) that regulate our appetite.
High fructose corn syrup, for example, is an obesogen. It makes you insulin resistant and interferes with leptin efficiency. The result is a double whammy: you crave more food and the food you eat turns into fat more easily.
Even tap water contains obesogens. One in particularatrazineslows thyroid hormone metabolism.
Anothera fungicide called tributylinstimulates the production of fat cells.
Then there is bisphenol-A (BPA), a synthetic estrogen that has been shown to increase insulin resistance, which is at the heart of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
And phthalates, which are chemicals found in all sorts of products from shower curtains to perfumes, may lower your metabolism, leading to increased weight and lowered muscle mass.
