The rest of Pesticides On Fruits and Vegetables Can Cause Cancer
A study found that residual pesticides used for growing vegetables and fruits can trigger cancer in children. The study was conducted by a team from California University, USA.
364 children aged between 2-5 years were included in the study. Davis, a team of researchers took data on food consumption and other factors causing toxic exposure on the child.
From the variety of foods consumed were found 44 species with a high content of toxic concentration.
Pesticides are toxins found in some fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, broccoli, spinach, green beans, apples, grapes, strawberries, pears, and other fruits.
Quoted from Dailymail, Dr Rainbow Vogt as lead researcher said:
“The focus of the research conducted on children’s exposure to harmful substances for the early lead on a long-term threat or in adult life.”
How to avoid bad risks without fruits and vegetables away from children is quite easy.
- First, eliminate pesticide clean by washing fruits and vegetables before consumption.
- Second, if possible, then choose organic fruits and vegetables that do not use the alias of chemicals destroy pests.
- Third, give the children a varied diet. Not just one type of vegetable and fruit only, but a wide range of food sources of vitamins.
