With the wide availability of junk food today, it is so easy for all of us to make unhealthy choices that we will only regret in the long run. So much of the food that we consume today is filled with dangerous neurotoxins that make us addicted to the unhealthy food that we eat so much so that it is very difficult to break away from it.
