According to research undertaken in the United States some 2.5 million tons of pesticide are used annually but only 0.1% reach their targetted victims -- other 99.9% ends up in our water supply and in the fruit and vegetables we grow. As these pesticides are designed to be neurotoxic, which is how they kill insects, it should not be surprising that they also effect human neuroligical tissues. Conditions associated with this type of toxic overload include chronic fatigue syndrome and a range of auto immune diseases.

Although pesticide residues are found in most commonly eaten fruits and vegetables the 12 most contaminated have been pinpointed by scientists as being grapes, strawberries, cherries peaches, apples, apricots, spinach, red and green peppers, celery, green beans, cucumber, and melons although The ideal solution would be to use only organic but if this is not a possibility then you might consider Enviroclean Fruit & Veg Wash, a new product from Australia that is now being sold in the U.K.

Enviroclean Fruit & Veg Wash is made from de-ionised water, coconut oil, palm oil and potassium salts and is designed to remove dirt, wax and chemical build up (herbicides and pesticides) from fresh produce.

Dry on a paper towel or clean teacloth and store (not in plastic bags) which helps keep fruit and vegetables washed in Fruit & Veg Wash in tip top condition for longer.
