If you’re a potato or coffee lover like us, then we’re afraid we’ve got some bad news for you…unless you’re religiously buying organic, that is.

You see, as a root vegetable potatoes absorb all of the compounds in the soil they’re grown in.  For conventionally grown potatoes, this means they’re soaking up loads of herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides on a daily basis.

According to the USDA, 37 different pesticides have been found on conventionally grown potatoes.  Seven of these are possible cancer causing agents, 9 are brain and central nervous system toxins, and 12 are possible hormone disrupters.  Even worse, 6 have been shown to potentially cause developmental and reproductive harm!

But it doesn’t stop with potatoes.  In fact, did you know that there’s an ingredient in your daily coffee that could be KILLING your brain?  Truth is, this ingredient is so toxic that the United Nations is considering a worldwide BAN, but the food industry is keeping it under wraps in hopes that you don’t hear about it.
