Detox: The Storm Within

Detox: The Storm Within 0

When the April showers turn to trickles and the sun emerges with the slate clouds overhead, I can’t help but relish in the rainbows that are born from such a transition. Just last week, a tyrannical rainstorm passed over my house. Within minutes the gutters were rushing with cool water and the rain drops sounded like pebbles on my roof.

Detoxifying from Alcohol with Green Foods 0

Acetaldehyde is toxic to tissues and may produce genetic mutations by damaging DNA. Normally, alcohol is metabolized in the liver to carbon dioxide and water via several enzymatic steps. However, some people lack the gene that is responsible for the production of the enzyme, aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), which helps break down acetaldehyde. For those who lack this enzyme, drinking alcohol may not only be unpleasant but may have long-term health consequences. Chronic drinkers and people who...
