Phthalates are bad for you and nutrient robbing. I also know there are chemicals in most plants that are natural pesticides and when ingested cause harm. Phytonutrients are refered to as aspects of the plant that help it resist insect damage and disease. This sounds like something I wouldn't want to ingest. Carotene doesn't even readily convert into Vitamin A, so why eat it! I always feel better when I keep my vegetables to a minimum and since it's possible to eat a zero carb diet, there's no need for them anyways. I do eat fruit and vegetables in moderation. I couldn't find a single source that didn't praise phytonutrients as a miracle food with no side effects. Help?
