A healthy body needs healthy food and we all know that a diet which has fruits and veggies in it is healthy. But what we might know is that the fruits and veggies may be full of pesticides. Yes it is true, the pesticides which we spray to get rid of the bugs is actually harming the produce.
In US alone, 1.2 billion pounds of pesticides are sprayed. Out of which, only a mere 0.01% reaches the intended target. The rest of them ends up in the soil, air and water and contaminate them. The diseases that are associated with pesticides are cancer, hormone disruption and skin irritation.
It is time we make the better choice of choosing organic and giving our body the nutrition it needs.
