One of the big questions that comes up for people when they’re starting out Going Additive Free is how to start and how to know what’s ok and what’s not. It can be really daunting and sometimes fall into that “too hard basket” because understanding additives and what goes into our food is something that is confusing for many of us.
But learning about additives and how they can be harmful is one of the ways we can become more informed so that we can make informed choices on what we choose to consume and eliminate from our diets or our cosmetic shelves. Bill Statham has written a book which is a fantastic resource called The Chemical Maze. Essentially this pocket sized book is a shopping companion that you can easily refer to whilst you’re out shopping. Not only does it list food additives but it also has a section on safe and unsafe cosmetic ingredients.
We have a couple of copies of The Chemical Maze Shopping Companion to give away to two readers. Just comment below telling us why you’d like a copy by the 29th January for your chance to get your hands on one.
