Top Ten Worst Diet and Healthcare Choices
& Ten Better Choices

2.  Green drinks
Proponents claim that the best way to get your green is to throw them in a blender. But there are no nutrients available from raw food, nor from raw juices. Worse yet, blending or juicing raw greens is a really good way to get serious food poisoning.       

How does the body work? Almost all raw plants harbor bacteria, viral particles, and even minor parasites that can injure or kill us. When blended or juiced, those unwelcome creatures multiply furiously, sometimes by ten thousand times in a few minutes. The first person to die in the spinach/e-coli recall was a young boy whose mom made him a green drink.       

Instead: Drink nourishing herbal infusions. Because they are made from dried plants steeped in boiling water, all bacteria, viruses, and parasites are killed. Learn how to make and use nourishing herbal infusions here:

Learn More: The CDC estimates nine million foodborne illnesses yearly in the USA resulting in hospitalization and death. They attribute 46 percent of these to produce. Produce accounted for 66% of viral, 32% of bacterial, 25% of chemical, and 30% of parasitic illnesses reported. This is a greater proportion then caused by land or aquatic animals for Bacillus cereus; Clostridium botulinum; enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli; Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157; non-O157 STEC; Salmonella enterica serotypes Javiana, Newport, and other; Shigella spp.; mycotoxins; all chemicals; hepatitis A; Cryptosporidium spp.; norovirus; Cyclospora cayetansesis; and sapovirus.
