What is Hiding in your Fresh Produce?
Do you ask your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables daily?
Read on to discover 6 shocking facts about pesticides in your daily food supply.
Many consumers are aware that conventionally farmed fruits and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides to thwart critters, but do you know how many of those harmful chemicals remain after your food leaves the field? The Environmental Working Group has released its Dirty Dozen list, and their findings are shocking. Pesticides pop up on everything from celery to blueberries.
Want to know more? Read on to find out exactly how many pesticides researchers found in foods that likely have a place in your refrigerator. And remember: If you want to steer clear of these worrisome chemicals, the answer is simple. Buy organic.
It’s enough to make you rethink the salad course: 78 different pesticides were found on lettuce samples.
Their cheerful rosy hue belies a dark truth: Every single nectarine the USDA tested contained measurable pesticide residues.
As a category, grapes have more types of pesticides than any other produce, with 64 different chemicals.
Health food gone wrong: 13 different pesticides were measured on a single sample of celery.
They’re full of vitamins and antioxidants, but domestic blueberries tested positive for 42 different pesticide residues.
My Noah loves his strawberries, apples and grapes!
And because I love him, I clean the fruits and all the vegetables (on top of all the chicken, meat and seafood that I buy weekly) using the BIOZone Food Purifier before I allow him to eat them.
Why do I use BIOZone Food Purifier?
Because it is proven that BIOZone Food Purifier can helps to reduce the toxins via the ozone process.
When it comes to food, many of you will be shocked to know that even if you wash your foodstuff, you may still be ingesting the residual toxins.
Except for the organic ones, fruits and veggies are invariably sprayed with pesticides in the farms. Some unscrupulous farmers may add gum to the pesticides so that they don’t get washed away every time it rains. Unless you scrub, some pesticide may still remain after washing.
Secondly, remember that these pesticides are toxic chemicals which get absorbed into the skin of the fruits and veggies. Even if you scrub, you can only remove what is on the surface. Whatever has been absorbed will go into your body when you eat the fruit or veggie (unless you remove the skin, but for some fruits, the skin is rich in certain nutrients).
To remove some of the absorbed contaminants, you have to ozonise the fruits and veggies. The food detoxifier/ozoniser machine produces ozone (O3) which is bubbled into a container with the foodstuff submerged in water, just like how oxygen (O2) is bubbled into a small fish tank.
The O3 molecules will rapidly split and finally become O2. In the process, the molecules kill germs and dislodge contaminants from the foodstuff, leaving behind fresh, pure, oxygenated foodstuff. The chemical contaminants will be destroyed, and solid contaminants will separate and float to the surface.
So, why not provide the best for your family?
Make sure the food that your serve them is clean and healthy.
You are in charge of your family’s health.
