Michael Pollan says yes.
I am going to try my best to make this not just another post about eating organic. We’ve all heard the apocalyptic studies about chemicals in our diet and their effect on our health, but sometimes we need a reminder.
A friend recently shared this TED Talk with me by William Li, head of the Angiogenesis Foundation. In it he discusses how most cancers are caused by environmental factors, and that diet consists of a third of those environmental factors.
What does this mean? It means that we have more control over our outcomes than we thought. We can essentially feed or starve disease, like cancer, with our diets.
