Summary According to the FDA, 99% of all conventionally grown food contains cancer-causing synthetic chemicals. Every person who eats a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy and protein products potentially consumes over 32 different types of synthetic chemicals everyday. The amount of different synthetic chemicals a person consumes depends largely on the diversity of foods in their diet and the amount of organic products they elect to eat. Choosing Safer Foods presents extensive research conducted on foods in thirty-six US cities. The number of chemicals in specific foods is presented, diets are analyzed and foods that should be purchased as a USDA certified organic product are identified in this consumer-friendly guide to informed food decisions.
