Everyone wants to become smarter, thinner and more beautiful in a cinch, but most don’t have the patience to wait. When you take that into consideration that generally equates to a bad choice, especially when it comes to juicing. Imagine taking jet fuel and pouring it into your car’s gas tank, would it run?

Harnessing the power of the sun does come at a cost, vegetables unless organic are usually exposed to pesticides and fertilizers.

One thing you can do to combat veggies exposed to pesticides and fertilizers is to
Wash them using soap, the FDA Isn’t currently recommending using soap or detergents to clean your fruits and vegetables however some health food stores sell food-safe cleaners to remove these toxins.
