US: Small fruit and veg increase could prevent many illnesses
Because some Americans have concerns about pesticide residues on their food, the study also examined potential cancer risk from residues. The study concluded, “The overwhelming difference between benefit and risk estimates provides confidence that consumers should not be concerned about cancer risks from consuming conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables.”
It should be noted that despite the recommendations of the government, health experts, consumer advocates and environmental groups to eat more conventional and organic fruits and vegetables, consumption has stagnated in recent years. There are hopes that this new message will have an effect upon this.
This study clearly illustrates that the key message for consumers is to choose either conventionally or organically grown fruits and vegetables with confidence, but remember to eat more for better health.
