There are so many good reasons to eat healthy, but perhaps one of the most important is that a nutritious, toxin-free diet can prevent and treat some chronic illnesses. Although it is true the origins of these diseases are complicated, today’s lifestyle, with its easy access to foods that are highly processed and/or exposed to toxins, can almost certainly exasperate health problems. While there is a lot of conflicting information out there about what foods are safe and beneficial, we at CMSRI highly recommend the following sites for the most comprehensive and up-to-date tips on eating – and living -- healthy:
