Would you like to discover just how many chemicals are in your fruit and vegetables? Many people are completely unaware that their everyday fruit and vegetables contains many different chemicals including some of Australia’s most popular produce. But why on earth do we have to suffer from a potential chemical toxic intake in the first place?
The core to this problem is something called a pesticide, often advertised a fruit and vegetable saver. Pesticides are sprayed over crops at various stages before harvest in an attempt to prevent pests such as small animals or plant species from harming the crop. The problem is, although rain and sprinklers may attempt to wash away these chemicals, most produce that reaches our homes still contains traces of such substances.
