In a recent episode of ASAPScience, creators Gregory Brown and Mitchell Moffit explain via whiteboard animation that all food is made up of chemistry and de-bunks common myths and misconceptions about “chemical-free” and detox diet claims.
Everything around us is made up of chemicals from the water you drink to the air you breathe -literally water is a chemical substance which is why it’s frustrating when companies consistently tout their foods as chemical-free or you hear somebody say if you can’t pronounce an ingredient you don’t need. …Now this isn’t a defense of processed foods and it’s not to say that one side is better or worse than the other but simply that foods are complex things and a little perspective can go a long way. You simply can’t leave a chemical-free life like some brands would like you to think the word detox is strictly a marketing myth.
