Hidden Dangers in Food: The Dirty Dozen of Ingredients

Thursday, June 29, 2017 

So many foods in our modern food supply carry additives, pesticide residues, preservatives, and other artificial ingredients. While many of these not so innocent bystanders are considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe), many fields of research and public health epidemiology suggest a very different narrative.

In this webinar Dr. Mark Pettus, Medical Director at Functional Formularies will review the most common and potentially problematic offenders when it comes to human health. Dr. Mark Pettus is a triple-board certified Internist, Nephrologist, and Integrative Medicine physician practicing for over 25 years. He serves as the Medical Director for Functional Formularies, manufacturer of the World’s only organic, whole-food, enteral formulas for critically ill patients.
