Pesticides In Your Diet? Cut It Out!

Dr. Chensheng (Alex) Lu, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at the Harvard School of Public Health, explains why reducing pesticides in your diet is critical to reducing the toxic effects of pesticide exposure for you and your family.

According to the Environmental Working Group:

Though the EPA has been restricting the uses of the most toxic pesticides, they are still detected on some foods. For example, green beans are often contaminated with two highly toxic organophosphates. Those pesticides are being withdrawn from agriculture. But leafy greens still show residues of organophosphates and other risky pesticides.
