The Truth About Trying to Wash Pesticides
By Fritz Kreiss, News Report
It’s a great science experiment for kids; and a sobering
reminder for parents. Simply grab some food coloring or
other dye that dissolves in water, fill a small cup or bowl
and place the cut end of your vegetable in the colored
solution (you can also substitute some juices).
Plants aren’t just coated with pesticides, plants soak up
pesticides; root vegetables in particular are vulnerable as
well as fruits and veggies with thin “skins” as they lack the
proper physical barriers needed for protection. No matter
how much you wash them you can’t get rid of the
pesticides that are now throughout your food. LInk: Nation
