valentine_candy_GMOValentine’s Day is approaching and your sweetheart may be planning to surprise you with the traditional gift of a a dozen roses and a heart-shaped box of candy. While you may appreciate the thought, the candy might be terrible for your health. Most commercial candy manufacturers use toxic genetically modified ingredients.

Toxic Genetically Modified Ingredients in Your Valentine Candy

Genetically modified foods are foods that have been genetically altered to be resistant to pests. This is because the pesticides are built right into the genetic material of the plant! Almost all of the corn, soy, and beet sugar produced in the United States is genetically modified.

Common Valentine candy ingredients such as soy lecithin, high fructose corn syrup, cornstarch, partially-hydrogated soybean oil, and beet sugar can be harmful to your health.

Eating anything containing even small amounts of pesticides can lead to the development of digestive disorders, autoimmune disease, neurological impairment, and even cancer

In the United States, there is no clear regulation for the labeling of genetically modified foods. This means unless you buy your candy from Europe, you just can’t be sure what you’re going to get.

Step it Up a Bit – Invest in Healthier Candy

If your sweetheart is always in the habit of getting you sweets on Valentine’s Day direct him to The Natural Candy StoreI’ve recently started shopping here because we’ve decided to start cleaning up our diet this year I don’t want to completely deny my kids the pleasure of an occasional sweet treat. Right now, they may be a little skimpy on gift box sets but they have plenty of great candies to choose from and plenty of them are 100% organic!

Valentine’s Day is a great day for couples to express their love. Just try doing it without the usual box of candy. Also, avoid perfumeNearly all of the popular fragrances on the market contain chemicals that have been proven to be neurotoxic.

Also, just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to go the traditional route of exchanging gifts. Sometimes just being able to spend a few hours alone together without the kids can be enough to put that romantic spark back into your relationship. Leave the little ones with a sitter and spend a night out on the town. Or better yet, splurge a little by renting a room at a swanky hotel.

What about you? What is your favorite gift to receive/thing to do on Valentine’s Day?
