The problem with today’s food is that most of the fruits and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides, poisonous substances that can be harmful to our health.
Buying organic food is especially challenging for people living in big cities, where most of the fruits and vegetables are imported and suspicious.
Pesticides and Human Health
Pesticides have been linked to several diseases, from short term impacts such as nausea, headaches and vomiting, to chronic and long term diseases and conditions such as cancer and endocrine disruption.
Some of the side effects of the constant use of pesticides, such as skin and eye irritation, or headaches, dizziness, fatigue and nausea, can be dramatic and fatal.
And the worst part is, chronic health effects might occur even years after you have been exposed to pesticides.
Not always effects of pesticides are instant. Sometimes, it takes several years for pesticides to start causing harm to your body.
Some of the most common long term effects of pesticides include brain, bone, ovarian, prostate, testicular, liver, breast cancer, as well as diseases like leukemia, Hodgkins disease and non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
What you need is one cup of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of baking soda, water and two tablespoons of lemon juice.
Put all the ingredients in a big bowl, and mix them. Once you have the mixture ready, put the fruits and veggies into the bowl and let them stay there for five minutes.
Afterwards, wash the fruits with water and let them dry. Now, they are ready for eating.
