Pesticides in fruit

Pesticides in fruit exceed Government ’safe’ levels

The UK Government’s Pesticides Residues Committee lead by Dr Ian Brown has shown that although the majority of fruit contains pesticides below the defined safe limits, some imports do not. Apples from France and Brazil and a number of samples of cherries exceed ’safe’ levels. Equally no comment was made on how even ’safe’ levels might accumulate in our bodies.

Six different pesticides were found in supermarket food, from lettuces to pears, raising the issue of a potentially dangerous ’cocktail’ of chemicals affecting our bodies.
