In this short video, I want to cover the foods that will counter obesogens. Obesogens don't have to do with calories. They are man-made chemicals in the environment that contribute to obesity.
A few things that can contain obesogens:
• Food containers
• Baby bottles
• Plastics and their related chemicals
• Non-stick Teflon cookware
These things give off chemicals that mimic estrogen. Estrogen is one of the hormones that make you fat.
Obesogens to look out for:
• BPA (found in plastics)
• Phthalates (found in plastics)
• Atrazine (herbicide)
• PFOA (found in certain non-stick pans like Teflon)
• DES (a banned drug that's still in the environment)
• SSRIS (anti-depressants)
The liver has the ability to turn these poisons into harmless particles. There are certain things you can do to stimulate this detoxification process.
Natural things that can detoxify estrogen:
1. Cruciferous vegetables
3. Sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables
