So what's in your food besides additives that we should be concerned about?

As far as fresh produce goes that would be pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and GMO foods and they aren't going away in the near future. In fact, GMO foods will become more prevalent and, without doubt, there is probably a new additive in your food as we speak.

'What's on Your Plate' is more important than ever. To minimize your risk, go organic as much as possible, check the labels and stay up on the latest information.

A good source is the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which regularly issues on an annual basis a list of food products with the highest (The Dirty Dozen) and lowest levels (The Clean Fifteen) of pesticides.

Be vigilant and be your own advocate. You are what you eat!
