Everyone wants the best for their children but many of us don’t realize that our children are being exposed to invisible toxins every day of their lives. They are going unnoticed and usually appear harmless on the surface. Once you find out the hidden dangers that our little ones are coming in contact with on a regular basis, we may begin to understand where all of the allergies that were not recognized years ago have come from.

It’s one thing to be unaware of the possibility of hidden toxins and poisons, but once you know which products are responsible you should seriously reconsider exposing your kids to them in the future.

Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or health food manager if they can recommend a natural vitamin for your kids.

 

2. Fast foods and processed meats products

We have managed to raise our children with a palate that can only accept chicken nuggets, colas, chocolate milk, and anything fried.

To say that the “meat” that is used at most fast food restaurants is toxic is an understatement. The World Health Organization has declared that processed meats are “carcinogenic to humans.” Several years back it was discovered that McDonald’s had a mystery ingredient in their hamburgers that was orange and unidentifiable. There has never been a better time to seek out organic food as well as farm to table restaurants.
