The American Consumer Protection Organization «Environmental Working Group» (EWG), created after thorough research a list of the 10 most «contaminated» and the 10 most «clean» products that are on the market.
The EWG examined the pesticide level on the surface of 48 different fruits and vegetables and found that to 65% of cases they were above the permissible limits.
Top 10 of products with most pesticides:
7. Sweet peppers
10. Cherry tomatoes
Top 10 of the most ”clean” products:
2. Sweet corn
5. Sweet peas (frozen)
According to the National Consumer Protection Organization of USA, the pesticides can cause health problems including nerve damage, birth defects and cancer.
Children are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of pesticides because their internal organs are still in development level and therefore are easily influenced.
Additionally since children consume greater amounts than adults relative to their body they could potentially consume most pesticides in each such product.
