Riesgos de los pesticidas en las frutas y verduras


Para ayudar a protegerse a sí mismo y a la familia de los pesticidas sobre frutas y verduras, elimine las hojas externas de las verduras de hoja y luego enjuáguelas. Pele los productos agrícolas que tengan cáscara dura o enjuáguelos con abundante agua tibia mezclada con sal y jugo de limón o vinagre. Otra alternativa sería comprar y servir productos agrícolas orgánicos, ya que los cultivadores de estos productos no usan pesticidas para producir sus frutas y verduras.
