Our mission is to educate and inspire farmers, ranchers, and consumers about the importance of sustainability, regenerative farming, and biodiversity in our food systems.

Eating out or ordering takeout and delivery from restaurants is a common practice for many individuals. However, have you ever considered the type of oil used to cook your food? One of the most affordable options, often referred to as rapeseed oil or canola oil, is genetically modified and has been associated with negative health effects such as weight gain, memory loss, and potentially dementia. This is an important factor to consider, particularly if consumed regularly.

Additionally, it is worth noting that certain jarred foods contain preservatives that provide longer shelf life but may have adverse effects on human health. One such preservative can dissolve the myelin sheath of protein surrounding cells, leading to their self-destruction as a protective measure against cancer. Unfortunately, this mechanism does not always work as intended. It is essential to be mindful of this particular preservative, commonly found in pickles, soups, dressings, and peppers.

While many people are aware of the potential negative effects of aspartame, another popular artificial sweetener called sucralose poses its own challenges. Sucralose has been known to have difficulty clearing from the body's filtering organs, potentially contributing to health crises such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Considering these factors, it is crucial to be aware of the toxins that may be present in your regular food consumption. Let's examine some notable examples:

  1. Canola Oil: Often used due to its affordability, this oil may have adverse health effects when consumed regularly.

  2. Sodium Benzoate: This preservative can harm mitochondria and nerve cells by dissolving the outer protein sheath, making it an ingredient to be cautious of in jarred foods.

  3. Sucralose: Artificial sweeteners like sucralose may not be efficiently eliminated from the body's cleansing organs, potentially leading to digestive issues.

  4. Growth Hormones: Conventional meat and dairy products may contain growth hormones, which can be a concern when consumed.

  5. Antibiotics: Similarly, conventional meat and dairy products may also contain antibiotics, highlighting the importance of mindful consumption.

  6. Bleach: Certain white foods and certain fish may be subjected to bleaching, which should be taken into consideration.

  7. Ammonia: Used in some conventional meats to combat bacteria and pathogens, the presence of ammonia raises concerns.

  8. Industrial-Based Bread Softening Agents: Ingredients like azodicarbonamide and urethane, utilized to enhance bread texture, are worth monitoring.

  9. Aflatoxins from Fungi: Found in peanuts, cashews, corn, whole grains, and cottonseed, aflatoxins are associated with liver cancer.

Understanding these potential toxins can help inform healthier food choices. It is important to educate ourselves about the foods we consume regularly to promote well-being and make informed decisions.
