Organic Fruits and Vegetables can Reduce Your Toxic Load
I am passing this information along from Dr. Louisa Williams, ND. She is the author of, “Radical Medicine”. We should
all read this book. This information is very helpful.
A 2003 study of Seattle school children showed switching to organic food immediately lowered pesticide levels in
the body. The study tracked preschool children and analyzed their urine for evidence of exposure to five different kinds
of pesticides. Researchers found that children eating conventional diets had an average of six- to almost nine-times
higher for children with conventional diets than for children with organic diets.
A 2006 study conducted at Emory University supported this conclusion. Researchers found that upon switching from
a conventional to an organic diet, urinary levels of two organophosphate pesticide metabolites decreased immediately
to an undetectable level.
Very few of the families studied ate 100% organic food. The researchers defined an organic diet as one that consisted
of 75% organic foods. Making small changes can improve your family’s health! Find a Westin A. Price Foundation chapter
in your area. They know where to get organic or at least good clean food. Look on the Web.
If you can’t buy all organic at least do it for those fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide levels (the dirty
dozen) and dramatically reduce your family’s pesticide exposure.
The Environmental Working Group, a consumer advocacy and research group lists many of the dangers of pesticides.
The group has developed a list of the Dirty Dozen, 12 fruits and vegetables you should always buy organic because
testing has shown when conventionally grown they are loaded with pesticides. The Clean 15 includes fruits and veggies
that have the lowest pesticide levels.
The Dirty Dozen:
1. Peach 2. Apple 3. Bell pepper 4. Celery 5. Nectarine 6. Strawberry 7. Cherry 8. Kale 9. Lettuce
(iceberg) 10. Grape (imported) 11. Carrot 12. Pear
Clean 15
1. Onion 2. Avocado 3. Sweet corn 4. Pineapple 5. Mango 6. Asparagus 7. Sweet Pea 8. Kiwi 9.
Cabbage 10. Eggplant 11. Papaya 12. Watermelon 13. Broccoli 14. Tomato 15. Sweet potato
We know that this is not easy, but begin now and do your best. The toxic load in our body is
responsible for the failure of many of our systems. Blood vessel disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer,
Alzheimer’s, etc. are all related to too much toxic material in our body.

Natural remedies for an active lifestyle
North AmericAN Precis syNdicAte
Being active is critical for staying
healthy — so it’s a good thing exer-
cise-related aches and pains, sore
muscles, and foot and leg cramps
don’t have to put a damper on the ac-
tivities that people love. Thankfully,
there are many safe and natural rem-
edies to keep pain at bay.
Soft-tissue pain often benefts
from rest, ice, compression and el-
evation. While rest gives your body
time to heal, ice is handy for reduc-
ing swelling and dulling pain in sore
spots. Be sure to wrap ice in a towel
to prevent skin damage and aim
to ice the injured area for about 20
minutes an hour or as needed, for
one to two days. Gentle compression
may help to keep swelling in check,
while elevation can also reduce it.
Injured ligaments and tendons
respond well to increased blood fow,
so moving and working with a physi-
cal therapist may help you return to
pain-free workouts faster. Applying
gentle heat can improve circulation
to make achy muscles feel better,
and a warm shower or massage can
soothe sore muscles. Remember, if
you are ever in doubt about your in-
jury, check with your doctor.
Still competing professionally af-
ter 45 years, 70-year-old NASCAR
driver Morgan Shepherd keeps in
shape by being active every day and
looking after his health naturally.
For Shepherd, the keys to staying
healthy are choosing a fun activity,
eating well and staying hydrated.
“Some people like running but
I prefer to get my running done on
roller skates,” says Shepherd. “I get
a really good workout, plus I hydrate
with plenty of water, before, during
and after a skate.”
When you need more than rest,
ice or heat but don’t like the side ef-
fects of stronger pain medicines, all-
natural homeopathic products offer
safe, effective solutions for aches and
pains. For information on Hyland’s
homeopathic recovery products,
such as Muscle Therapy Gel with Ar-
nica, Arnica 30x, Leg Cramps, Leg
Cramps PM, and Bioplasma Sport,
visit www.hylands.com.
All the products are available na-
tionally in Whole Foods Market, Vi-
tamin Shoppe and other natural food
stores, grocery stores, supercenters
and pharmacies. A community of
active adults can be found at www.
facebook.com/HylandsFitTalk.
