Dee McCaffrey, CDC is the founder of Processed Free America and the author of "The Science of Skinny."

During the years in which she practiced chemistry, McCaffrey became intimately familiar with the chemical names and toxic properties of the majority of common environmental pollutants, particularly those used in and on America's food supply. 

She made the connection that pesticides, preservatives, flavorings, colorings, and refined carbohydrates affect body chemistry in such a way that balanced health is difficult to sustain. 

It was this understanding that led to a dramatic transformation in her life, she overcame a lifelong battle with obesity by eliminating processed foods from her diet.  The result was a 100-pound weight loss, which she has sustained for 20 years.

In The Science of Skinny: Start Understanding Your Body's Chemistry - and Stop Dieting Forever, McCaffrey reveals how as the food industry continues to replace natural foods with synthetic ones, our bodies are subjected to unnatural chemical reactions which often result in major health issues - everything from obesity to arthritis.
