Eat as little poison as possible? Avoid these 12 fruits and vegetables at the supermarket

It is no surprise that much of the fruit you eat is sprayed. Yet you can avoid the most of the poison. After all, there is a big difference in the amount of poison used for each type of fruit and vegetable. The poisons used on fruit and vegetables are pesticides. Farmers use them to prevent insects from attacking the fruit. With fruit, the chance of being eaten by insects without any poison is bigger than with vegetables. That is why farmers sometimes spray several times.

Although the poison has its advantages; after all, it ensures that more fruit can be grown, pesticides also have their disadvantages. They are associated with several diseases and hormonal imbalances. While the European Commission stated in 2020 that there should be a reduction in the use of poison on fruit and vegetables, it has not happen so far. According to Pesticide Action Network (PAN), the use of pesticides on fruit has increased by 53% in the last nine years.

As a result, 29 percent of all fruit trees, plants and bushes in Europe contain the poisonous pesticides. But you can do a lot to avoid the poisons yourself. For example, by avoiding these twelve frequently sprayed vegetables and fruits or by buying a non-poisoned variety. The best and most delicious thing there is, of course, is to grow it yourself. If that doesn’t work out, put on your fearless boots and go visit the local farmer.
