Fruits, Veggies, and Pesticides? [INFO-GRAPHIC]

Share this article


"It has been drilled into us that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It’s a nice phrase, and hey, it even rhymes, but what if that glossy miracle apple is coated in pesticides?

The infographic below suggests that continual exposure to pesticide-laden fruit and vegetables can lead to health risks like nerve disorders and, in children, possibly early onset puberty. It seems to me that these health risks counteract any good fruits and veggies are supposed to do. So, what to do?

The infographic suggests the ubiquitous “go organic!” route and also brings up shopping locally. While it might be a little less convenient to support a local farm or drive a little further to shop at an organic grocery store, popularity of farmers’ markets, organic food chains, and local farms’ snazzy delivery services makes these options a lot more practical." by Lindsey Savino at http://dailyinfographic.com/author/lindseysavino
