ten most adulterated foods

I was researching sugar and the damage it does to humans when consumed.  I ran across the ten most adulterated foods today.   I found honey was among them.  I think everyone should now have their own bee keeper, just like many have their own farmer to provides them with hormone free beef, pork, chickens and of course organic veggies. I just cannot get over what we are consuming that is causing damage to our bodies and our immune systems.  John
