It’s both scary and ironic that if you’re in the normal weight range, you’re actually in the minority. Equally appalling is that fact that American’s spend more money on healthcare than any other country in the world and yet we have the highest disease rate. And almost all of the diseases we suffer from are caused by the Standard American Diet (SAD). We are literally eating ourselves to death!

Much of the estrogen dominance is caused by exposure to environmental estrogens (xenoestrogens), and one of the most notorious offenders is plastic.

2 Major Diabetes Perpetrators That Are Rarely Acknowledged
