Enviromental Factors most heavy metals occur naturally, their release as byproducts of manufacturing and other industrial and/or technological processes are man-made. Plus, God did not create plastic bottles and containers, pesticides, cleansers, solvents, and the like-we did. The best rule of thumb is not to ingest anything with a name that’s impossible pronounce, much less spell!
I agree with you and this can be a subject for a very long and endless discussion. Personally I avoid foods that have too many ingredients on their labels and especially ones I can’t even pronounce. I’m not a chemist. We eat fresh foods bought either by myself or my wife. We both cook our meals and we always know what we are eating. I try to pass this thinking/habit down to my clients as much as I can. Avoiding fast foods is a great way of not ingesting processed foods with many ingredients that are impossible to pronounce. I believe more and more health professionals today are starting to think this way as well. Wellness is getting a lot of attention not just by individuals but also from larger corporations.
