Cilantro

Did you know that fresh cilantro can help remove mercury from your body? Yes! It helps bind with the heavy metal mercury and take it out of your body. It's good to load up on fresh cilantro after you've had mercury/amalgam fillings replaced or repaired. Or after you've had a flu shot this seaon, as we know, most flu vaccines contain thimerosal preservative (aka mercury.) You've got to eat the cilantro fresh to have the effect, and a lot of it :)
Need a recipe to add more cilantro into your diet? Fresh Salsa is a great way to load up on cilantro and to use up those fresh seasonal tomatoes!
