When I was diagnosed with Cancer 18 years ago, the type of cancer I was diagnosed with was from PESTICIDES being sprayed on our lawns - it was coming thru our tap water. I threw away all pesticides cleaning products etc and make my own with NON-harmful chemicals. We have NOT drank any Tap water for 18 years - we filter it all. We sometimes purchase organic but in the event we can't do that I wash and clean ALL produce before we eat it. It does not take alot of effort to do this. EWG is a great site for information on this and so many other things like water quality in every state and it is NOT good. But you can be proactive and clean all produce. Please see the article below for THE DIRTY DOZEN and THE CLEAN FIFTEEN.
NOTE - This is a post I did in 2018 which was based on a STUDY on which ways to clean produce and fruits worked best. CLICK HERE and this one in 2015 CLICK HERE.
