How to minimize toxins and pollutions from the food we eat!
Fruits and vegetables contain essential nutrients vital for our health, but not cleaning them well before eating can leave behind pesticides, harmful bacteria, and viruses.
Pesticide residues found on fruits and vegetables can disrupt the body’s endocrine system, harm the nervous system, and even increase the risk of cancer. While there are various suggested cleansing methods, such as using salt water, baking soda, vinegar, soaking in rice water, or using vegetable and fruit washes, simply rinsing with running water may be the most effective way to clean fruits and vegetables.
Other considerations are the dangerous Impact of Spoiled Food on the Liver and Kidneys:
Fruits and vegetables may have only a portion that appears spoiled, however mold spores are not visible to the naked eye. Even if the rest of the produce appears to be in good condition, it may still harbor mold. Consuming such produce can have detrimental effects on the body. For instance, consumption of aflatoxins found in nuts can increase the risk of liver cancer.
Mold toxins can impose a greater burden on the kidneys and increase the risk of urinary tract tumors. Nuts and coffee beans can be especially susceptible for harboring mold toxins. To lessen the occurrence of mold, Consider storing nuts and coffee beans in a container and keep them refrigerated. Additionally, it is advisable to wrap rotten food adequately before disposal—as mold spreads through spores—and uncovered moldy food will continue to release toxins.
