What’s REALLY in Your Food?
Many of us don't know where our food comes from, and we don't know what's really in it.

Many of the edible-appearing products on grocery store shelves contain ingredients that have the potential to be harmful.

While you may be seduced by the pretty pictures on the box, or the marketing claims by the manufacturer, you often don't really know what's in your food. You trust that if they are selling it, you can eat it.

Unfortunately, that's not always the case.

Special guest, Mira Dessy, joins Dr. Mike to help you wade through all the confusion and shares tips for finding truly healthy foods.
