Long term exposure can result in mind and body disorders and can cause cancer. Bananas are rich in a substance called pectin which can gently remove these heavy toxins from the body through urination.

* Bananas act as a prebiotic and can stimulate the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel.


* Like most fruit, mandarins are rich with antioxidants. A large mandarin has 32 mg of vitamin C and 41 mg of vitamin A. Both vitamins C and A fight free radicals that damage cells and cause illness and premature aging.
