We’ve become exposed to a greater number of environmental toxins than ever before. Environmental toxins can feed cancer, interfere with glucose and cholesterol metabolism, and induce insulin resistance and obesity through multiple mechanisms, including inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial injury, altered thyroid metabolism, and impaired central appetite regulation.

In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, we’re talking about how environmental toxins impact our health, the top endocrine-disrupting toxins, and my strategies for reducing your exposure. I also share which foods you should be sure to buy organic.

  1. pestecides could be avoided if investing in expensive structures very thin stainless meshes in example 0.026 mm hole as in themeshcompany so most insects won't have acces to the plants. turn all the outdoors fields into greenhouses and trap there insectivores.

  2. Have the organic fields been tested. I was told at one point that they use pesticides in this case as well, not as much or as many, but some. Just wondering.

  3. Very good information. That said, my summary for the video is: "The changes are really simple. Don't use any products you currently use. Upend your entire life and change everything. Everything in the modern world will screw you up, even store receipts. Even mother's milk in Antarctica is hopelessly polluted. But don't worry about it because that will raise cortisol."

  4. Make sure the label on your Organic food doesnt have the DANONE symbol. I found it on my organic,non gmo,non hormonal milk. After researching who is behind it and owns it.. its initial are BR, who own most of the world, and just bought Ukraine. A globalist entity, whos motto is DEPOPULATION. Im sure you figuired it out. RESEARCH EVERYTHING

  5. But 🌽 corn is GMO🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
    The USA the "FREE COUNTRY"
    Is all a crap….
    May Jesus have mercy with us because if it's not one thing is the other..
    They are trying to KILL US………

  6. Great but what about people who are too poor feeding families and or whatever. We live in a toxic world is correct. How can we can clean produce properly… If we dont have a choice in the area we live in…. Cant keep eliminating because the government and fda is not doing thdre job by stopping the poisoning of their own people.

  7. I told people about receipts years ago. They all looked at me like I was crazy, sadly. I've been on top of learning about all of this knowledge for years since having my daughter 19 yrs ago. I went all natural and organic back then. I've tried urging everyone I know to do the same.

  8. I need some clarification when it comes to sweet potatoes. From what I have learned root vegetables should be all organic and you were saying that it is ok to buy the conventional. Please clarify. Thanks

  9. The omnivore’s (new) dilemma; poisoned produce, seafood with cesium, or beef with steroids. Free-range bison seems safe, heirloom, free-range eggs and butter, and plants grown in containers seem the only safe alternatives.

  10. I've bought 'Certified Organic' Kiwi and I eat the skin. This is in South Australia. I don't for a second think that it is organically grown simply because when you get to the dip bit where it was joined to the vine, tastes exactly like the dip bit in apples from years gone by. I refuse to buy it now but it is a shame. I prefer to eat the skin on much of the produce I eat because I know peeling it removes a large percentage of the nutrients. I only buy 'Certified Organic'. I buy frozen 'Certified Organic' strawberries and other berries but sometimes I question why the flavour is sometimes lacking.

  11. Can't believe corn is on the "OK to buy non-organic" list. Nearly all of the corn in the US is genetically modified. Some of it creates its own pesticide (BT toxin) and the other is designed to be drenched in glyphosate and not die…

  12. Thank you once again Dr Omole on Youtube for this information. Since following you (for some years now), my kidney stage results has decrease from stage 3 to stage 1. You saved me from dialysis. Thank you and please keep the videos coming!! God Bless 🙏🏽……

  13. I, as a chemist, analyzed pesticide residues in vegetables and fruits from 1991 to 1998. The amount of the residues tested was below the tolerance that EPA set up. During the 7+ years, there were only 2 produces that had residues above the tolerance, they were pulled away from market immediately and destroyed, and one farmer got fined for million $. Basically, our fresh produce is safe in terms of pesticides. Still wash it to reduce the residues that are allowed and below the tolerance.

  14. Despite all the well-studied nutrition programs, taking supplements, and preserving the smallest details, I want to ask you a question and I want you to answer it. Why do you look 80 years old?

  15. I only eat organic high dollar food whenever possible all prepared by me. It’s super expensive to eat healthy but it costs more to eat unhealthy in the long run with the health problems.

  16. Doesn't all the spray get into the plants from the roots. But trees might be different one time I cut down a tree and one growth ring was black with oil which came from years earlier when asphalt was put down but just that one ring.

  17. Results published in 2012 from two major Harvard University studies—the Nurses’ Health Study, which followed the diets of about 120,000 30- to 55-year-old women starting in 1976, and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, which followed about 50,000 men aged 40 to 75—found that the consumption of both processed and unprocessed red meat appeared to be associated with an increased risk of dying from cancer and heart disease, as well as shortened life spans overall—a conclusion reached even after controlling for age, weight, alcohol consumption, exercise, smoking, family history, caloric intake, and even the intake of whole plant foods, such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. The findings suggest there may be something harmful in the meat itself.
    The largest study of diet and health was co-sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the American Association of Retired Persons. Over a decade, researchers followed about 545,000 men and women aged 50 to 71 and came to the same conclusion as the Harvard researchers: Meat consumption was associated with increased risk of dying from cancer, dying from heart disease, and dying prematurely in general. Again, this was after controlling for other diet and lifestyle factors.
    Alzheimer’s disease risk may also be affected by meat consumption. In Japan, the prevalence of Alzheimer’s has shot up over the past few decades, thought to be due to the shift from a traditional rice-and-vegetable-based diet to one featuring triple the dairy and six times the meat. The lowest validated rates of Alzheimer’s disease in the world are found in rural India, where people tend to eat plant-based diets centered on grains and vegetables. In the United States, those who don’t eat meat (including poultry and fish) appear to cut their risk of developing dementia in half, and the longer meat is avoided, the lower dementia risk appears to fall.
