A healthy body is a beautiful body, and with October being breast cancer awareness month, I want to share some of my personal tips on how you can maintain a healthy, energized body that is full of vitality and radiates beauty from the inside.
1. Don't eat microwaved food - We live in a society in which we just don't seem to have the time to cook. Microwaved food is fast and easy, but I do believe that there is a link between microwaved food and cancer . According to some studies, nutrients are destroyed when food is microwaved.
2. Eat organic when possible - I eat as many organic foods as I can. Grocery stores such as Whole Foods, Henry's Market, and Trader Joe's carry many organic fruits and vegetables at relatively affordable prices. Organic foods are grown without toxic pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Even a presidential panel recommends eating organic food .
4. Be careful what you put on your skin - I always keep Consonant 's tagline in mind: "What goes on your body, goes in your body." Stay away from beauty products that contain parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Few studies have been yet to be published, but it's been said that phthalates exposure may double breast cancer risk .
