That is some serious misinformation! Enjoy your pesticide laden produce, and don't worry about the the coincident increases in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, autism, ADHD, etc that came with the use of modern pesticides and herbicides. I'm sure it's just coincidence.

It's called science, my friend. Just because you see cause and effect doesn't make it that way.
