Organic fruit and vegetables are in very small quantities in nature and all that in supermarkets is sprayed with pesticides. With some preventive ways, you can reduce the harmful effects of pesticides located on fruit and vegetables.
Over 90 percent of fresh fruits and vegetables in the market, it is contaminated with a dose of pesticides harmful to human health. Although we know that pesticides are used to defend the food of parasites and disease, but scientists have found that pesticides are harmful to the body and are carcinogenic.
We can not influence the origin of fruits and vegetables in supermarkets. They sell us products that have a suspicious origin. But there is a way to remove harmful pesticides.
It is not enough just wash with water
-If it is a higher concentration of pesticide, then wash under running water will not help. Green leafy vegetables, such as lettuce, kale and spinach – wash in the sink with water to which you add one to two teaspoons of baking soda.
-Pesticides can be cleaned with vinegar so that the two cups of water put half a cup of vinegar.
-If you want a completely natural way, using a combination of salt and lemon juice. Fill the container with water and add a teaspoon of salt and the juice of one lemon. Put the mixture into the desired fruit or vegetables and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse under running water, dry and serve.
-If you do not want to wash foods with other than pure water, then soak them overnight – soak fruits and vegetables in water and next morning rinse with lukewarm water. Vegetables and fruits do not wash as soon as you buy it and washed disposed of the fridge or pantry because it will quickly destroy and become toxic.
Washed fruits and vegetables with shell
Lemon, orange, mandarin, watermelon and other fruits and vegetables whose flakes do not eat should also be washed. Pesticides and bacteria are easily transmitted from hands and a knife, and lemon peel in no way should be shredded biscuits unless you are absolutely sure that they come from organic farming.
