Cancer prevention continued -

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 60 percent of herbicides, 90 percent of fungicides, and 30 percent of insecticides to be carcinogenic.
It is not a coincidence that , farming communities have higher rates of leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and soft tissue sarcoma, as well as cancers of the skin, lip, stomach, brain, and prostate.
Choose organic for all your dairy, fresh fruit and veggies.
It’s an easy rule of thumb: if you’re eating the skin or peel of it, buy it organic. It’s that simple.
