The food we eat is of utmost importance to anybody who wants to live healthily.
No doubt that choosing the right food is adamant but so is its quality. And the tools we use to prepare it can greatly influence if our high quality food is as healthy after we process it as when we first bought it.
In particular, the kitchen appliances we use to stir, boil, blend, chop or mix our food together should be made from non-toxic materials. That is so important because the food does not simply sit in these appliances but is heated and vigorously thrown up and down as we process it.
We simply need to be sure that it does not rub any unhealthy substances from the walls of our appliances.
In most cases, this means to choose those appliances that are made from natural, non-toxic materials and avoid plastic/synthetic materials as much as possible.
Packaging plays an undeniably important role to protect and preserve our food, to keep it fresh, clean and safe.
There are different kinds of packaging such as paper or plastic. But which material is predominantly used? We all agree here – plastic.
If you look around in every shop, all you see are plastic wrappings. Be it fruits and vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, water… Even hot coffee, tea and other drinks for on the go are served oftentimes in plastic cups.
At the same time, the plastic packaging contains a number of chemicals that can be harmful to our health if they leach into the food we eat.
They are linked to disruptions of the endocrine system, play a role in unlocking allergies and asthma, among others. The chemicals are known to disturb the hormonal balance in our bodies and are especially toxic to young children.
There hardly is anything in our bodies that we put more effort in prevention about than our teeth!
Most people we know of would brush their teeth at least once a day, many use mouthwash or floss. We simply know deep in our minds that keeping our teeth in good shape is vital to our survival, to the basic ability to feed ourselves.
Yet so many people, despite their best efforts, still have issues with their teeth. We know. We do.
