03 Apr Mycotoxin Avoidance to Obtain Maximum Health
The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations estimates that each year mycotoxins contaminate approximately 25% of the world’s crops. The National Survey of Lead & Allergens in Housing (NSLAH) estimates that nearly 25% of U.S. homes have mold or moisture problems. Mycotoxin exposure impedes optimal health, especially brain health so every effort must be made to minimize the exposure or eliminate it when possible. Minimizing mycotoxin exposure requires a world-wide effort . The expense can be staggering and there is research that indicates global warming will increase mycotoxin production. Countries, businesses, organizations and citizens need to cooperate to ensure safe growing, handling and testing food and feeds all over the world. I am always scouring the literature for new options in this area of prevention. I would recommend a product like G-Pur to help support bowel health.
