Word 2007 cannot get rid of tracked changes

I have created a word document that I needed to track changes etc.  But now that I no longer need to do this, every time I email the document to someone, it still retains the tracked changes.  I can tell Word not to show the tracked changes, but they are really still there.  I do not want people to have this document because all they would have to do is ask Word to show the tracked changes and it will do it.  How can I re-save the document with NO tracked changes EVER so they cannot reveal them?

You could also hide all the changes, select the entire document and copy and paste it into a new file.

Just accept (or reject) the changes. The buttons are in the Changes group on the Review tab.

Once you have accepted or discarded the changes, don't forget to turn Track Changes OFF.
