Made in America… time for a boycott?
No this is not anti American rhetoric coming from South of the Border, but a look into what damage Fruits and Vegetables grown in America does to the bodies of Americans..
In the USA, when an average talks about Fruits, they usually mean Bananas, Oranges and Apples.
Where do Bananas come from, that is sold even in supermarkets in snow drenched North Dakota? At any time of the year? From Ecuador, From Colombia etc..
Oranges and Apples are homegrown products.
Which of the three have the highest amounts of Pesticides detected in them? Out of the highest pesticide load of 100? No surprise.. Oranges at 42 and Apples at 89.. their latin cousins are at a lamentably low pesticide level of only 16…
Strawberries pack in a 89 and peaches a full 100..
