Toxic apples?


Thursday, May 01, 2014

I eat apples very rarely because of the high sugar levels but at least make sure they are always organic.
Here is another reason:

    My baseline glucose is high and the spike from food wasn't that great of which an apple is included with every meal. I think if I add more fat, that will lessen the spike more so I don't see the apple as an enemy, at least for myself.

    Our government just does not care if it causes cancer and other problems they just want the money and a way to kill us off. They keep letting the EPA keep toxins in and on our foods but stop foods that have been around for centuries and not harmful from getting to us. Soon they will stop us from growing our own food and make the big farms that are bad for you because there is no nutrients in them be our only source of food. They just want to control the people.

    As I understand this, DPA addresses browning of the skin (not the flesh). So is it sufficient to discard the peel? (Yes, I understand that it would be far preferable to buy apples without DPA!)
