How dangerous it is to eat unbleached fruit
A rushed snack, bacteria and pesticide residues are the difference between washing and quickly removing the shirt.
"Obviously, the worst thing that can happen is to have a pathogen on him and who's eating to die," says Sandria Godwin, professor at the University of Tennessee, Department of Family and Consumer Science.
Apples go a long way from harvesting to our homes, while fruit can come into contact with pathogens and harmful microorganisms. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 9 million people get sick each year due to the consumption of contaminated food, and fruits and vegetables account for 46% of the food.
"Someone with the compromised immune system can get sick from a single apple, while those with immunity can eat hundreds until bacteria will do harm," Godwin adds.
But pathogens are not the only problem, studies from the University of Tennesee show that the plants are the dirtiest part of our refrigerator. Their scratches and cracks are open to hide bacteria.
"Apples that fall during harvesting can come into contact with animal feces," says David Margolin, a professor at the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Biomedical Sciences at the University of New Hampshire.
Fruits have been ranked by the EWG as the 2nd most pesticide-infected food.
Looking at the apples at the supermarket, processing them until they reach the district is important. Margolin tells us that if the mechanical washing there is not done well at home it will have no effect because it will not penetrate the wax.
