Are Fruits and Veggies really good for you?

admin Everyday Tips, Knowledge Base Leave a Comment

If you’re like me and over the years develop sensitivities towards certain types of foods you eat, especially if your diet is filled with fresh fruit and vegetables its likely stems to the amount of pesticides being sprayed on the produce we purchase from our supermarkets or local fruit & veggie shop.

These foods tested positive for a number of different pesticide residues and contained higher concentrations of pesticides than other produce.

    • More than 98 percent of samples of strawberries, spinach, peaches, nectarines, cherries and apples tested positive for residue of at least one pesticide.
    • A single sample of strawberries showed 20 different pesticides.
    • Spinach samples had, on average, 1.8 times as much pesticide residue by weight than any other crop.

Wash thoroughly and keep an eye out on:

– STRAWBERRIES
– SPINACH
– NECTARINES
– APPLES
– GRAPES
– PEACHES
– PEARS
– CHERRIES
– TOMATOES
– CELERY
– POTATOES
– CAPSICUM
– HOT PEPPERS

The much cleaner ones:

– AVOCADOS
– SWEET CORN

– CABBAGES
