The bottom line is we must limit our exposure to these chemicals and toxins and fill our body with all the fruit and vegetables that we can. It really is the anti-oxidants that help fight the free radicals, and we should be incorporating as much as possible into our diets. The daily recommendation for fruit and vegetables in our diet from the government used to be 5 a day. This has gone up to 9-13 a day. If you are trying to detoxify your body then you need more!
In any case the seminar was given by Juice Plus which whilst I hate being sold to, I'm grateful they gave me the opportunity to learn more about toxicity and how we can arm the body to fight toxins.
New fuel on the detox cooking diet after this - incorporate even more vegetables and fruit into every recipe!! If anyone has any good veggie filled recipes please do add them.
Also - quick note - some fruit & vegetables it is worth buying organic some of the time sometimes its not - e.g. spinach go organic, kiwi fruits don't bother. Check this website www.ewg.org for good information on farming practices and pretty much anything to do environmental issues.
