Toxic Food

Have you heard the term cumulative dose? 

It means “the total dose resulting from repeated exposures.”


Will one burger kill you? Unlikely.

Will one bag of Doritos? Unlikely.


The bigger question is how much toxic food load are you ingesting cumulatively (processed foods, junk oils, factory meats, artificial sugars and additives) and what is the tipping point for you?



Educate yourself about what you’re buying.


This picture has store beef (right), and farm beef (left). There is an obvious visible difference between the two, but the differences don’t stop there!

1. You may notice the color difference in the picture. The store bought is pumped full of additives and preservatives, including propyl gallate, to protect against spoilage due to long term air exposure.* (see below)

2. There isn’t a guarantee of where that beef came from, OR how many cows are in it. Yes, it may have the USDA label on it but as long as that animal was packaged in the US, it can be called a Product of the USA.

And yes, the meat in the right package is not from one single cow, rather scraps from multiple cows. It may have come from Argentina, Canada, or Brazil.

3. The beef on the left is fresher, darker and is farm raised beef. It is filled with more nutrients and flavor. The ground is also from one cow and not just low-quality scraps from multiple cows.

Some of the farms I purchase meats from:


John Henrys, Millington, MI

Colorado Craft Beef,

Force of Nature Meats, online and in grocery stores,

US Wellness Meats,  

Good Life Proteins, Beef, fish, poultry,



*Propyl gallate appeared to cause more cancers (in several organs) in rats treated with a low dose than with either a zero dose (the controls) or a high dose. That finding may be indicative of an "endocrine disruptor," as well as a carcinogen.   Often used in conjunction with BHA and BHT.*


**BHA and BHT can induce allergic reactions in the skin. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies BHA as a possible human carcinogen. The European Commission on Endocrine Disruption has also listed BHA as a Category 1 priority substance, based on evidence that it interferes with hormone function.

Stop eating crap! Give yourself the gift of real food!
