I came across a must read article in the New York Times this morning from the International Herald Tribune entitled “Eat like a Mennonite.” http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/19/opinion/eat-like-a-mennonite.html?ref=global-home&_r=0
Essentially this global opinion documents some of the toxins that we and our children are exposed to in our everyday food. Bisphenol A, phthalates, triclosan etc. are all mentioned; toxins that my previous blogs are full of.
The author had participated in a pilot study commissioned by the Silent Spring Institute and the Breast Cancer Fund and is the author of a book “Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History.”
Unfortunately, the article ends with the conclusion that so many of us make; eating CLEAN and REAL is inconvenient, too difficult and that we can’t live without our processed comfort foods. However, when the chemical dust settles, the choices we make have consequences not only for ourselves but our children as well.
