Foods You Should Buy Organic (Chapter I) 你應該選擇有機食品!

If you could only choose some of your fruits and vegetables to be organic, which ones would you pick? It’s a no-brainer that produce with high levels of pesticides are bad for your health, so which ones should you keep an eye out for in particular?

如果在你只能選擇部分的有機水果或蔬菜,你會如何選擇?如果擔心食物中過高含量的殺蟲劑將有害健康,那你特別會關注哪些食品的安全?有機食品並不意味著不含殺蟲劑,只是代表未經工業加工喔!

 

1) Strawberries 士多啤梨
Strawberries topped the 2016 list of foods that were contaminated with the most pesticides. According to the Environmental Working Group, there are 300 pounds of pesticides applied to each acre of strawberries! So it’s a good idea to buy them from an organic source.

在2016食品排行名單上,士多啤梨含高含量的殺蟲劑。根據美國環境工作小組的調查,每公頃種植士多啤梨的土地上,含有約300磅殺蟲劑!所以選擇有機士多啤梨可謂明智之選!
