Phytonutrients found in certain foods may protect against the toxic effects of industrial pollutants such as dioxin and DDT, suggesting a dual role for plant-based diets to reduce both exposure and subsequent damage.
Where is dioxin found in our diet? See Dioxins in the Food Supply. What about DDT? See Food Sources of Perfluorochemicals. How many different chemicals are in the most vulnerable amongst us? See CDC Report on Environmental Chemical Exposure for pollutants in pregnant women, and How Fast Can Children Detoxify from PCBs? for children’s exposure. More on ginger in Amyloid and Apple Juice, and in Dangerous Advice From Health Food Store Employees. See how we can incorporate more in our diet in Healthy Pumpkin Pie, and The Healthiest Beverage. I’ve also got many other videos on citrus.
