• In a study that lasted 10 years, conducted by 30 researchers and 7 clinics, 1312 volunteers took 200 mg of selenium or a placebo and the result was a large drop in cancer incidence and mortality: 63% prostate cancer, cancer 46% of lung and colon cancer 38%. Mortality was reduced to 50%. It was the first human study using selenium for cancer prevention.

• Nitrates in vegetables abound, especially in the greenhouse and in the highly paid fields. Subsequently, the nitrates are converted into nitrites which can cause hypertension, anemia and nerve problems, with children being particularly sensitive to them. The great risk occurs when nitrites are converted to nitrosamines, vitamins and cancer-destroying for the digestive system.

• Pesticides are abundant in vegetables and greenhouse plants, intensive cultivation. 40,000 farmers die every year as a result of applying pesticides and more than five million are intoxicated. Minimum waste can cause nausea, rashes, asthma and allergies. Some, like DDT, remain in soil for over 40 years. DDT is the suspect guilty of male sterility of our continent. Along with other pesticides, DDT is present in milk.

• A kilo of spinach or lettuce contains up to 1,200 mg of lead. This heavy metal alters the blood and nervous system and kidney damage occurs. It is also related to delays in child development.

Tartrazine (E102), yellow dye banned in many countries but still used in Spain, produces allergies, asthma, hyperactivity in children and digestive disorders. The daily dose should not exceed 7.5 mg per kilo of weight. With today's children and the high consumption of sweets, it's easy exceed this amount.

• Some foods contain mycotoxins moldy, extremely toxic fungi that grow in tropical climates. The most feared are the aflatoxins present in rice, corn, peanuts and spices contaminated. They can cause encephalitis and hepatitis. In the United States there are numerous cases of children who die from eating peanut butter, popular sandwich filling.
