WARNING: If you're juicing non-organic produce, you're just poisoning yourself with a pesticide cocktail


Juicing
(NaturalNews) I have an important warning today for all those people who are poisoning themselves to death by juicing non-organic produce: STOP what you are doing and think for a minute about how juicing really works.

Juicing is an extraction technology that pulls liquids and nutrients out of fresh produce items like apples, carrots, celery and greens. One of the things I've learned as the lab science director of CWC Labs is that most pesticides are water soluble, meaning they are extracted with the juice and stay in the juice until you drink it.

A glass of fresh juice made from non-organic fruits and vegetables is a glass of pesticide juice.

Juicing removes the very plant fibers that can protect you against pesticides and heavy metals

Even worse, consider the fact that juicing, by definition, removes all the plant fibers, leaving behind just the absorbable liquids. Plant fibers actually block toxic pesticides and heavy metals in your digestive tract, capturing them so that your body eliminates them. But when you drink juice without those fibers, you body absorbs the juice -- and everything in it -- far more efficiently and quickly.

Thus, if your fresh juice is filled with pesticide chemicals, you will be rapidly absorbing pesticide chemicals the moment you start drinking the juice.

And yes, pesticide chemicals persist for a very long time. They survive sunlight, harvesting, cleaning and juicing. (And no, you can't "wash off" all the pesticides because they are INSIDE the produce!) They even survive human digestion, which is why pesticides can be easily detected in urine and breast milk.

The answer? Only juice ORGANIC produce or things you've grown yourself

You should never juice fresh produce that has been produced with chemical pesticides. There are only two categories of things which are safe to juice:

1) Organic produce.
2) Produce you grow yourself.

This is why I grow so much of my own produce using the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Boxes I invented a couple of years ago. They use no electricity and no pumps, yet they grow huge quantities of beets, parsley, cilantro, strawberries and as much lettuce as you'd ever want to juice.

You can get these systems at SupplySource.com or learn how to make them yourself at FoodRising.org.

If you do juice non-organic produce, blend with organic produce fibers in a Vita-Mix

If you must juice non-organic produce, here's the solution to protect yourself: Blend whole fruits in a Vita-Mix to get the fruit fibers into the juice, then combine with the juiced greens from your juicing machine.

Importantly, the organic fruit fibers will help block the pesticides during digestion. What are the best fruits for this? Strawberries, grapefruit and apples.

All three have powerful fibers with a strong affinity for pesticide chemicals. They serve as a kind of biological border against pesticide toxins, preventing some of them from being absorbed into your blood. (Yes, borders are a good thing when you need to keep the enemies out!)

Summary: Three crucial things to remember about juicing

#1) If you juice conventional produce, you're just drinking a pesticide cocktail.

#2) Fruit and vegetable fibers block your body's absorption of pesticide chemicals. (This is a strong argument for consuming whole foods, not just extracted juices, by the way.)

#3) If you must drink juice from conventional produce, mix it with fiber-rich organic whole foods blended in a Vita-Mix or other blender. The best "defender" foods are strawberries, grapefruit and apples. For defense against heavy metals, chlorella and peanut butter are also very effective.

Yes, I know what I'm talking about

As the lab science director of CWClabs.com, I use various extraction techniques for extracting water soluble pesticide chemicals from many different types of foods and supplements.

CWC Labs is an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) laboratory with proven analytical excellence. There, I also run an LC/MS-TOF (Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry) instrument to quantitate pesticide chemicals at very low levels (such as 5 ppb). So I know that pesticides persist in all sorts of fresh produce items, and I know that pesticides are soluble in water and juice.

I've also conducted extensive studies on how food fibers protect your body from absorbing heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium. This research will soon be expanded into analyzing how well fibers block popular pesticide chemicals (and eventually, glyphosate!).

My lab is about to launch commercial testing services for pesticide analysis in food, beverages and water. To learn more about my lab's commercial testing services, contact us at this link.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
