Avoiding Chemicals in food on a budget

It’s no secret that our food contains pesticides that are really bad for our body. And it’s also no secret that many patients and families are flat out broke from trying to take care of medical expenses.

But when you are trying to optimize your detox and methylation, the food you eat is important. The U.S. Department of Agriculture found at least 1 pesticide of the 68 samples of conventional produce analyzed.

Pesticides cause brain and nervous system toxicity, cancer, hormone disruption, skin, eye, lung irritation, amongst other things. They are toxic by design.

But there are steps you can take to limit your exposure on a tight budget. The website ewg.com has a guide called EWG’s 2012 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™ that lists the “dirty dozen” conventional fruits and vegetables. Buy these Organic to limit exposure to harmful pesticides.

Here’s a chart you can print out to have handy while shopping. This included the DIRTY DOZEN PLUS and the CLEAN 15.
