Toxic Fruit...read on?
Summertime is the height of fruit season. At no other time of year can
you get fruit that tastes as juicy and sweet as it does right now. The
only problem? Most of it has been soaked in pesticides.
Fruit is notoriously difficult to grow organically and without
pesticides, says Jeff Moyer, farm director at the Rodale Institute, an
organic research institution. "Fruit is colorful and high in sugar
content," he adds. "We all, many insects included, love sugar." Because
most fruits have soft skins, the pesticides that are used to kill those
bugs (and the molds and fungi that also love fruit) get into the flesh
and into your mouth, and no amount of peeling or washing can remove
them...this is WHY we eat OTV organic!!
