While most people do not enough fruits and vegetables (or won't), I recommend you add Juice Plus+ to your daily nutrition. Juice Plus+ - learn why eating fruits and vegetables is especially important, and how you can benefit from adding Juice Plus+® to your diet. Juice Plus+® is the most thoroughly researched nutritional product in history. Now, some people worry about the fact that not all the fruits and vegetables used to make Juice Plus+ are organic. The real concern is the fact that the majority of people aren't getting enough in their diet! And the makers of Juice Plus+ are careful to wash all the fruits and veggies prior to juicing. Not only that, but I believe any pesticides sprayed on those items that are left after the washing process, are actually removed during the drying process because they probably bind to the water and sugars. Keep in mind that this is a minute amount we're talking about here, so there shouldn't be any concern about any level that could harm your health.
There is news about some fruits and vegetables sending people to the doctor. You can bet that this is one that you'll only hear because 'man' has somehow harmed Nature's perfect nutrition. Here's a recent story on how some fruits and vegetables are 'poisoned' --
ScienceDaily (Feb. 13, 2009) Raw fruits and vegetables are good for you but may also send you to the doctor, according to research published today by Cambridge University Press in the journal Epidemiology and Infection.
A review article in the journal, written by several experts in their field, has highlighted the fact that fresh fruits and vegetables are increasingly recognised as a source of food poisoning outbreaks in many parts of the world.
In Europe, recent outbreaks have revealed new and unexplained links between some bacterias and viruses that cause food poisoning and imported baby corn, lettuces, and even raspberries. In the USA, recent outbreaks of E Coli infections have been linked to bagged baby spinach, and Salmonella to peppers, imported cantaloupe melons and tomatoes as well.
Professor Norman Noah, Editor-in-Chief of the journal says: "This research confirms that raw fruit and vegetables can cause food poisoning. To obtain raw fruit and vegetables out of season, as many countries now do, they are transported many thousands of miles from growing areas, and outbreaks can affect many widely dispersed countries simultaneously. Some outbreaks undoubtedly go unrecognized, and the scale of the problem is as yet unknown. Read more...
Comments: Don't let an isolated case of 'poisoned' fruits and vegetables keep you from eating a healthy diet. And if you don't, won't, or can't get more fruits and vegetables in your diet, add Juice Plus+ to your daily consumption.
