You are exposed to various poisons present in your food and air everyday. Knowingly or unknowingly these poisons find way into your body and cause slow poisoning. We are addicted to junk and processed foods and rarely eat organic or healthy foods.
The milk we buy is also packaged and laden with chemical preservatives. We prefer not to opt for real and fresh organic products that are healthy may be due to the fact that the junk food is easier obtain and is much cheaper. But we mus realise that a change towards healthy food can improve the quality of our lives and also increase our life expectancy.
Fruits and vegetables are also laden with chemical pesticides that can damage the internals organs slowly. Most people also rely on artificial sweetener assuming that they are a healthy substitute for sucrose. However, it can cause many health issues such as arthritis, bloating and weight gain.
Have a look at some ten sources of toxins that you are accidentally letting inside your body daily.

Artificial sugars contain aspartame and saccharin. They cause many health problems such as arthritis and gastritis. People live in the misconception that this sugar is healthy. It is ironic that the artificial sweeteners consumed to help lose weight only contributes to additional weight.

You can have one to two cups of coffee but excessive consumption can cause many health problems. It causes insomnia, heart burn, indigestion and other such conditions. The other sources of caffeine are tea, soft drinks and energy drinks.
