16. Avoid Harmful Preservatives.
Preservatives have a place in our dietary habits and they primarily serve the function to keep our foods good for a long time. However, preservatives, when consumed in high quantities, may have a devastating effect on your body’s organs, especially the kidneys. Your kidneys play a vital role in the processing and filtering of your blood, so by eating an abundance of preservatives places your kidneys at risk of illness. Purchasing organic produce means you avoid any harmful preservatives, but make sure to read all your food labels and ingredient lists if you are not consuming produce foods.
