Liver dysfunction leads to chronic poor health, disease and death.

The EWC, which stands for the Environmental Working Group, has just recently come out with its newest, most recently updated list of toxic foods.

Canola oil actually comes from the rapeseed plant, which isn’t the most appealing name in the world. During WWII this oil was used for industrial purposes and the oil was so toxic that it was actually banned by the FDA for human consumption in 1956!
