Nutrition thieves

Milk and dairy products: robs zinc and calcium

Trans-fat and saturated fats: interferes with enzymes activities

Sugar: increases copper deficiency and leaches magnesium which are excreted in the urine

Sodium: constantly depletes magnesium and potassium from the body

Phosphates: is an essential mineral but large amounts from processed foods cause the digestive tract to be sluggish, thus preventing absorption of vitamins and minerals

Pesticides: interferes with the body's ability to use vitamin B6

Free radicals: deteriorates the body's immune and defense system
