How do I remove pesticides from my food?

Removing Pesticides

Wash fruits and vegetables using a dilute soap solution and peel them completely to remove surface residues. However, keep in mind this may remove some of the nutritional value and will not affect the residues that may have been introduced systematically into the produce. Therefore, it is very important to buy certified organically grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Even better, grow your own!!
