Some of the most toxic foods we are recommended to avoid are:

* Artificial sweeteners 

* Shortening (hydrogenated oils, trans fats) synthetic trans fats have been linked to cancer - they interfere with enzymes your body uses to fight cancer.

Any food that has been canned or had any chemicals added to it is classed as a processed food.

What are the health risks of processed foods?

* Excessive amount of sodium has been linked to high blood pressure, heart attack’s and strokes. Some trans fats are associated with a higher risk of developing clogged arteries.

For the past year I have only been eating organic produce, and from personal experience I not only look healthier, I feel better, my skin and hair is glowing, and some would say a big contribution to these factors are my diet. We at Ethically Organic are passionate about organic skincare, because what we put on our skin gets adsorbed into our bodies like food, its important to know what's in your skincare products, check the labels, don't be fooled by the exterior, or the fancy packaging. Knowledge is power!
