Some of the most toxic substances known to man are sprayed on fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds. Pesticides have been linked to cancer. They also imitate estrogen, a fat-forming hormone, and create thyroid function disruption, two things that cause weight gain.
We always hear that we should "Eat More Vegetables". Not so if they are covered in these chemicals that accumulate in our fat cells, lowering our immunity to other carcinogens, and increasing our cancer risks.
At Dtox Juice, we always use organic produce. We also make our own nut milks and nut butters from organic, raw almonds and Brazil nuts. We never use conventional, boxed milks. This makes all the difference in our delicious, decadent smoothies, lattes, and frappes. Be a discerning consumer. Just because it's a health food store, don't assume they are organic. Ask. Your health depends on it.
