There are always consequences to what we consume and these “consequences” can either promote health or destroy it. Food can act as either a medicine or a poison to the body. It will lead the body to internal balance (homeostasis) or premature damage and early death.
There are huge consequences for everything we consume, regardless of how small the quantity. Our foods have significantly changes over the decades to such an extent, that our bodies do not recognize them. This drastic shift in consuming large or even small proportions of highly modified foods has led to a multitude of chronic and autoimmune conditions.
