Pesticides Experiment….

It’s a great science experiment for kids, but a sobering message for parents.

What kind of future are we giving to our children?

“Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.”

Plants aren’t just coated with pesticides.

“90% of lettuce tests positive for 47 different pesticides and 57 different chemical residues.”http://www.pesticideinfo.org/DS.jsp?sk=13045

Plants soak up pesticides.

And no amount of washing is going to remove substances that are embedded in their tissues.
