Unfortunately, while many people pile their shopping carts with plenty of fresh produce, the fact is that conventional produce isn’t nearly as healthy as most people think. Sure, you are still getting vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but along with the good, you are getting plenty of the bad. Conventional fruits contain numerous pesticide residues which cannot be completely removed by washing. More than 98 percent of all conventional produce, especially the “dirty dozen,” is known to be contaminated with cancer-causing pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides, according to The Environmental Working Group.

Chemicals used on our foods, including those found in the fertilizer conventional farming methods use to replenish the soil, contaminate our food and, therefore, contaminate the body. You can avoid all this by enjoying organic produce. Growing your own, even if all you have is container space, is a great way to drastically cut the cost of organic produce.

My lemons are up to $2.00 & avacados $3.00. Anyway, our soil we grow all our food in, is not only contaminated but so nutritionally deficient, those lemons and all our foods, aren’t as healthy as we think. Sad!
