Eat your fruits and vegetables!- is what our parents used to say when we were little.The health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. Try to reduce your exposures as much as possible,but eating conventionally-grown produce is far better than not eating fruits and vegetables at all. You can lower your pesticide intake substantially by avoiding the most contaminated fruits and vegetables and eating the least contaminated produce and research has also proven a vast nutritional difference between organic food and chemically grown food.
