Tell me this, when was the last time you saw a worm in your apple that was bought in the supermarket? You probably can't recall, as it was a very long time ago or never.
The reason why you can't find little critters munching away in your produce isn't hard to guess. Your supermarket only sells the most appealing produce to you. To keep the fruits and vegetables unblemished, farmers douse them with pesticides. So if you buy them in any developed country, you end up eating a lot of pesticides.
Just how big is the danger you ask?
Approximately five billion pounds of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other biocides are being added to the world each year. Remembering that hormones are secreted and act in very minute quantities, you will appreciate the fact that we have enough contaminants to ruin our health many times over.
The New Dirty Dozen warn consumers of the highest pesticide offenders. Apples consistently rank at the top of the list. Some more than 45 different pesticides have been detected on the fruit of sin. Don't be surprised to find a cocktail of pesticides in apples juice, apples sauce and all apple products if not organic.
