New scientific study reveals that rinsing apples - the most contaminated
produce item on the market - is ineffective in removing pesticide
LOS ANGELES, CA, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Grow Green Industries, Inc.
(GGI) and Ultimate Labs in San Diego, California, initiated a pesticide
reduction test last week that concluded that red, green and yellow
apples found at your local grocery stores may be harmful to your health
if only washed and dried with water.
However all is not lost, as the study suggests that when the apples were
treated with EAT CLEANER All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash and Wipes (http://www.EatCleaner.com), they proved a 99.8% reduction of the Atrazine pesticide and 99.7%
reduction of the Simizine pesticide - both of which are commonly used
in U.S. agriculture but are banned elsewhere due to their toxicity.
EAT CLEANER was more than 99 times effective than water, the control.
Mareya Ibrahim, the founder and president of GGI says, "We believe, and have now proved, that using the EAT CLEANER Wash and
Wipes can play a significant role in safely in effectively reducing and
almost eliminating dangerous pesticide residue from apples both at home
and on the go with our Fruit + Vegetable Wash and Concentrate and our
"Many harmful pesticides are not water soluble and since the majority of
produce is waxed, they can get trapped under the surface. Pesticides
such as the ones we tested are not only dangerous, they're banned in
the EU and have been linked to cancer and hormonal disruption.
Families and food service companies can safely and effectively use EAT
CLEANER to remove wax and pesticides from fresh produce" added Dr. Shawki Ibrahim, Chief Scientific Officer, GGI.
According to a yearly survey by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture), 98% of apples have pesticide residues, ranking them as the most
contaminated product in America, jumping from third to first place, in
front of celery and strawberries.
