I like this quote from the article->
You’ll note that fruits dominate the list of foods with the most pesticide residue. The main reason for this is that consumers have become very, very picky about fresh produce, and growers have discovered that, from an economic standpoint, it makes sense to douse everything with toxic chemicals so the fruits are completely blemish-free
Good thing is if your on the candida diet fruits don’t really fall in diet too much So this shouldn’t concern most. I have never understood the american obsession with perfectly looking aesthetically pleasing food. Its the same reason they bleach white rice and sugar.
I have also read recently that the nutrient levels in non-organic produce are really not that different from organic produce. Good news.
