  • Safer Foods

    I recently read the following tips for reducing contaminants in your food, even if you don’t buy organic:

    1. Wash all produce. (Even if you are going to peel a fruit, cutting through the skin can transfer bacteria to the inside of the fruit.)
    2. Consume low or nonfat dairy and lean meat, because contaminants tend to be more concentrated in fat.
    3. Buy wild salmon, which is less polluted than farm-raised salmon, light canned tuna rather than white or albacore, which has more mercury.
