When people think about whole food, they think of healthy eating and healthy living. They think clean and organic. This is what whole food should be. Unfortunately, what we may find in these so-called healthy options could actually harm us.
Detoxifying Is More than Eating Organic Whole Food

Mercury in Ocean Fish
One study found that over the past 50 years the mercury levels in Pacific yellowfin tuna, often marketed as ahi tuna, is increasing at 3.8% per hear.
It is unfortunate that while these fish would normally be completely organic, healthy options, they are poisoned by man-made sources of mercury that are polluting the oceans and our food source.
