first, your body was designed to filter toxins. so, small amounts of undesirable substances should have little or no effect.

You don't need to worry about any damage at all, let alone long-term damage.

You're doing an awesome job man. You're doing all the things most of us would do if we could go back (and if we could muster the willpower, which is easier said than done).
Yeah, I guess that puts it into perspective.

Thanks for the reassurance.

Reassurance goes a long way with my worries obviously, so thanks.

Good point, and good to know there are others on here with a similar thing with the anxiety.

Thanks man.

Why are you avoiding gluten? I understand those that have to avoid it because they have issues with it but not others.
Well with this thing with the acne, like you say there are people who have to avoid it because of their skin.

It's the second biggest contributor to acne in people, only beaten by the joint first of milk and sugar.
Turns out quite allot of people have this intolerance, hence that statistic.

I haven't got terrible acne or anything, but it sort of seems to come in waves.
Not huge breakouts, relatively small ones, but I've had it for 5 years now and I'm really sick of it.
I've been trying to pinpoint what it is causing it, and since cutting out sugar and dairy it's improved a hell of allot, to the point where now I just have some hyper pigmentation that will clear up soon enough, and just a few spots.

The acne is on it's last legs now, but in people with a gluten intolerance, the hyper pigmentation fade time is often lengthened, and the reason the spots, although on their last legs still keep annoyingly coming back.
So if you have the intolerance, you could be nearly free of it, like me, but remain in the final stages because of gluten (preventing hyper-pigmentation from fading and creating more spots)

So I thought I'd try pretty much gluten free for a while and see if I do in fact have the intolerance and it's stopping me from getting rid of this.
I don't mind though.
As I said all my carbs pretty much come from quinoa, sweet potato, vegetables and fruit, and I actually like my diet now.

I'll have to see in a couple of months if going without gluten have helped.

Many ingredients may be listed by long name references but that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't natural or even good for you, just something to bear in mind.
That's true, very good point
I think perhaps there's quite a bit of misinformation about this food having read all of yours and the others comments.
I'll have to look into it a bit more I guess.


Thanks for the help Babs.

Ahh yes, of course.

Thanks for the reassurance.

And that quotes certainly something I should follow. Maybe then I wouldn't worry so much.

Thanks again JD.
