It turns out that many of them were filled with dangerous chemicals and toxins that have been shown to negatively impact human health.

It's not about being perfect, it's about being armed with the right information so that you can put your family on the path to better health. Segedie includes: Delicious, kid-approved recipes for readers looking to detoxify their cooking routine - The brands that contain toxic chemicals and dangerous additives - How to choose organic produce that's pesticide-free (it's harder than it seems) - Instructions on making the move to meat, dairy, and eggs that don't contain GMOs, growth hormones, and dangerous pathogens."--
