15. Non-organic fruits
Atrazine is banned by law in European countries, but still used in the US. This is a weed killer that causes severe problems in humans, especially to your reproductive capabilities.
A 2009 study found that when pregnant women drank water contaminated with atrazine, their babies had reduced body weights. How about the fact that the sewage from cities in the USA (nicely called bio solids) is used in the fields of farms in the USA as a form of fertilizer! You will never find ORGANIC food being cultivated in composted human sewage waste!
Common foods are also subjected to an enormous amount of chemicals as well as hormones, to make the fruit and veggies grow bigger and in standardized shapes. Apples are probably the biggest concern with pesticides showing on more than 98 per cent of all apples tested. Fruits with a 90% positive rate of pesticide residue include oranges, strawberries, and grapes.
WARNING: Washing fruit does not remove 100% of the pesticide residue. Pesticides are toxic chemicals to insects as well as human beings.
