A Culprit Behind Weight Gain
Those pesky pesticides cause us more pain than we realize. They are one of the main culprits as to why we gain weight, hence the reason I refer to them as “pesky”. Pesticides reside in fat tissue, causing weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Certain pesticides can cause birth defects, kidney disease and they totally disrupt our metabolism.
Studies have shown that pesticides, herbicides and fungicides sprayed on produce, grains and nuts have been linked to cancer. You see, what pesticides do is imitate estrogen in the body and disrupt the thyroid’s function. Over time, this causes damage and the body can’t defend itself again carcinogens, therefore putting you at risk of cancer.
I can’t help but wonder, What did Adam and Eve use on the produce and herbs in the garden? Was the original system that God put in place broken? No, it wasn’t. But we have managed to alter the natural process to the point that it can be challenging to find produce in our local grocery store that isn’t ridden with chemicals. If the process wasn’t broken, why did we try to fix it?!
Imagine what life would be like if you weren’t digesting these chemicals? Eating clean is a life-changing experience that can yield unbelievable results in your health. Then, of course, getting the metabolism back on track is just the icing on the cake. (Ok, maybe this isn’t the best time to use the cake idiom, but you get what I mean.) Trying a detox and eliminating these pesky pesticides is a good start to clean eating.
