Pesticides are used by farmers to save the crop from the attack of pests. It helps them to yield an unharmed crop and keep its selling price low. But these powerful chemicals provide a lot of harmful effects on your health, as they are a poison for us. In other words, our diet is being poisoned, against our wishes. It all happens when we consume vegetables and fruits, grown in this non-organic way.
This issue is denoted with the title of 'Pesticide Poisoning'. It arises when the chemicals intended to kill pests, start affecting the non-targeted organisms like human beings and wildlife (like bees). This condition occurs from a long time exposure to the pesticides residue in food, air, water, soil, sediment, food materials, plants and animals. This process gives rise to a lot of health troubles. It mainly includes skin and eye irritation, nervous system disorders like Parkinson's Disease, reproductive diseases and severe types of Cancers. There may also occur the problems of neurological, birth defects, fetal death, and neuro developmental disorder.
To avoid the side effects of pesticides, soak all your fruits & vegetables in warm water, for a few minutes, at least. Then drain out the water.
- Peel their hard skin and wash them with the water that is mixed with salt, lemon juice or vinegar.
- Prefer buying only organic foods.
- If you have sufficient resources for home gardening, then nothing could be better than that !!! Grow your own vegetables & fruits in your home garden, without the use of any chemicals.
