Dirty Dozen: Why Buy Organic Produce and Avoid Plastic and other Endocrine Disruptors?

Why spend more for organic produce? Exposure to pesticides and toxins significantly affects our body’s detoxification system. This is not only obviously “toxic”, but it indirectly affects our ability to metabolize hormones like estrogen. This can indirectly increase our risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer, especially if we already have genetic problems along these same detoxification pathways. SNPs, or Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, are quite common. Find out how genetic testing and controlling estrogen metabolism can reduce your risk of prostate and breast cancer. If you are taking hormone replacement, it is even more important to know your estrogen metabolites and limit your toxin exposure. Controlling these pathways is an important part of not only limiting risk but also maintaining a healthy metabolism, weight, etc. So buy “Certified Organic” when purchasing these fruits and vegetables. These are the most notorious for high levels of pesticide contamination. Also, clean produce with apple cider vinegar before consumption. And lastly, limit plastic exposure (i.e. bottled water)… BPA and Dioxin are very common toxins that also disrupt our hormone system. Drinking pure water sources with triple reverse osmosis systems, in non plastic containers, is even more ideal. Obviously, it’s hard to avoid these exposures altogether… just do the best you can whenever possible. It helps.
