    • I have read about strawberries, celery, and other fruits and veggies that have the higest residues. And in case you‘re wondering why there should be even a low level of pesticide residue in some organic food—it’s because of groundwater contamination and pesticide drift from neighboring farm fields, and from prior soil contamination with now-banned but still-present persistent organic pollutants (such as DDT). Steps are taken by organic farmers to minimize such contamination, but it’s not a perfect world.

      Just another reason, I feel so great about cleansing for optimum health! Not to mention the nutrients that are being destroyed.  

      Thanks for sharing this Cynthia! estatic

    • I don’t know if I’d use soapy water on a thin skinned fruit like strawberries. There is a fruit wash I used to buy for grapes, think it was called Veggie Wash. I must have eaten a mess of them little bugs, because I only rinsed them and would pop the tops off as I put the fruit in my mouth.

      I’ll stick to blueberries.....

      Thanks for the eye opener!

    • I watched the clip 2x and never heard the word pesticide mentioned. I assumed the washing was to get bugs off. Yes strawberries do have residue and should be washed,as should any fruit or vegetable you intend to consume. The regulations on farmers in CA are some of the strictest in the nation. I won’t buy produce grown out of the USA-other countries don’t have the regulations in place that our farmers have to follow here. But that’s just one farmer’s opinion.
