Pesticides might be vital in keeping those pesky pests away from destroying and spoiling the freshness of fruits and vegetables, but these could have harmful effects when ingested. Before taking a bite out of that red, plump apple, make sure to use a special fruit and vegetable wash to ensure that you’re eating them clean.

The presence of pesticide in your food can cause a lot of health problems, especially for children. For example, many pesticides have been linked to cancer. Several types of cancer, such as brain and prostate cancer, have been traced to pesticide exposure. An example of this chemical is methyl bromide, which is found to cause prostate cancer. Moreover, infertility has also been traced to pesticide exposure. For example, chlorpyrifos, a popular pesticide for strawberries and peaches, has been linked to lower testosterone levels. With these effects, it should become a habit for you to do a thorough fruit and vegetable wash, whether these products have been labeled organic or not.

The reality is that even if you have been very careful and diligent to purchase only organic; the outside of the product may not match the purity of the inside. Your produce may still not be as toxic-free or chemical-free as you are hoping.

Quality, Organic Fruit and Vegetable Wash to Avoid Contaminated Food | iGOZEN | Scoop.it
How many hands have handled those fruits and vegetables from the farm they’re grown until they reached the grocery stacks? If any of those people are sick or have touched something else unsanitary, and the greens are not thoroughly washed, chances are the germs will be transmitted to you. Also, the fruits’ surfaces may already be teeming with microbes from the farm soil, which may have even come in contact with animal feces through leaching. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, listeria has caused the deadliest foodborne illnesses outbreak in almost 90 years among other harmful contaminants like salmonella, listeria, norovirus and E.coli. Also, a certain parasite called toxoplasma can be particularly dangerous to a pregnant woman and her baby.

All-Organic Fruit and Vegetable Wash Makes Apples Truly Good for You

All-Organic Fruit and Vegetable Wash Makes Apples Truly Good for You | iGOZEN | Scoop.it
Apples aren’t the only fruits laced with chemicals, though. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), other popular fruits like strawberries, peaches, grapes, blueberries, and nectarines are pumped full of pesticides, too. Of course, fruits are key components of a healthy diet, so simply not eating them is certainly out of the question. Peeling fruits prior to consumption can be an alternative, but some, like apples, tend to be more nutritious when eaten with the skin. You can also wash produce, which many people do, but doing so might not remove all of the pesticides present on the rind. Given the dangers pesticides pose to humans, you’re probably wondering how to wash fruits and vegetables properly so that no harmful substances make it to your plate.

Why Organic All Purpose Cleaners are Much More Important than you Think

Many consumers feel that household cleaners containing harsh chemicals are the most effective option. A Purdue University study tested the effectiveness of various natural cleaners such as lemon juice, baking soda and vinegar on both bathroom and kitchen dirt. The results showed natural cleaners as effective as chemical cleaners in disinfecting and reducing bacteria. Doctors are quick to point out that antibacterial products are actually hazardous to your health. Organic cleaning products allow your body to build defenses against bacteria resulting in a healthier immune system.
