The less contaminated product
The least contaminated fruits are:
Very few mangoes and pineapples have pesticide residues on them, and when they usually contain only one type is. Bananas often contain pesticide residues, but rarely multiple ones.
To avoid pesticides, the best thing is to consume organic products. When this is not possible, choose those who have the least pesticides on them
---> Other important towers to help reduce our pesticide exposure:
* Non-organic fruits skin, as often as possible *: This means pears, apples, etc. I know that many nutritionists say that the skin contains the most vitamins, the skin of the fruit is indigestible, and although it may contain lots of vitamins, they are not treated like vitamins in fruit flesh.
Wash your product with a non-toxic soap. You can buy a non-toxic soap detergent in most health food stores. Use this soap to wash your non-organic peaches or other fruit if you happen to buy them.
Remember though that eating fruits and vegetables non-organic is even better than drinking beer or eating organic organic pizza!
