Day 12 - What Else Is Your Diet Attracting?

Besides unnecessarily causing allergies, this is another way in which our bias towards certain foods can cause the exact opposite results from what we want. After decades of food processing and the soy industries convincing us that animal foods are loaded with toxins, ethical scientists have proven that just the opposite is true as you’ll learn in this video. The Reset Your Body Health Challenge will help your body to ward off unwanted external elements so that they don’t get the best of you.

In the video, I mention my favorite source for fish that is exceedingly low in mercury and PCBs. Our waters have been polluted with industrial runoff and chemicals from pharmaceuticals, which means that many fish — especially the larger ones like tuna, salmon and bluefish are loaded with heavy metals and other contaminants. Luckily, I have found this one company that actually tests their fish for these chemicals which are strictly far below the government limits. Even better is that their prices are extremely reasonable and the taste is unparalleled by any other fish I have found. I buy fish from them all year long. I suggest you try it out.
