Remove Pesticides from Fruit And Vegetables – Veggie Wash
Conventionally-grown produce has been shown in random testing to contain unacceptable levels of pesticide residues. Even organically-grown produce is allowed to use some approved pesticides and chemicals. Long-term exposure to pesticides has been linked to cancer, damage to the nervous and reproductive systems, birth defects, and severe disruption of the immune system and GI tract. The effects are even more severe in children and evidence suggests that parental pesticide exposure can affect future generations.
Simply follow these steps:
With a sink full of water, add 60-120 ml of Hydrogen Peroxide 3% – Oxygen PlusTM and soak your produce in it for 20 minutes.
Rinse with water and dry them off.
We all know to wash our fruits and veggies before eating them by running them under water, but is that enough to protect us from harmful pesticide residue? While plain water and friction will remove some pesticide residues, it certainly won’t remove all, or even most, of it—and is there really an acceptable level when it comes to a toxic substance?
Aside from harmful pesticides, produce can be covered with dirt and debris, wax coatings, parasites, and harmful bacteria and oils from the hands of store employees and other customers. It’s even important to wash fruits and vegetables with thick skin, as knives will carry germs or parasites from the skin to the flesh. Needless to say, it’s very important that you properly clean your produce to ensure you and your family don’t inadvertently experience negative health effects—from eating fruits and veggies of all things!
