Today’s Healthy Dose – An Apple A Day

Overlooking the fact that as of late most conventionally grown apples are mushy (due to freezing during transport), apples are the most popular fruit in the U.S. as well as the most heavily sprayed. The average apple contains residue from 47 different pesticides including:

  • 6 Known Carcinogens
  • 16 Hormone Disruptors
  • 5 Neurotoxins
  • 6 Developmental or Reproductive Toxins
  • 11 Honeybee Toxins

Yum.
