This applies to both plant based food sources and animal sources of food. In a number of cases, these toxic substances are in our environment (like in our water supply, in the soil, and in the atmosphere) and in other cases, it is part of the processing used in preparing food for human consumption. For plant based foods, the use of pesticides and other chemicals in growing food can cause health issues. The use of chemicals in processing foods poses another concern or chemicals used as additives to food supply and beverages. The use of antibiotics in livestock raised in factory type of environment can cause a number of other problems. We have one resource that addresses these concerns in detail. This review includes page numbers in parentheses where the information is posted in the book.
