Its not just the peels and rinds that may contain traces of hericide and or pesticide. Systemic pesticides are designed to be taken up by the plant and incorporated into its tissues. Some of these, such as such as Dimethoate, may be incorporated into berries and can poison birds which consume them in the fall and winter.I hope unscrupulous growers arent using this stuff on edible fruit and vegetables,if they are you can imagine what the long term consequences would be to some one drinking major quantities of it every day.My juicer has been collecting dust for many years as i'm not sure we should be drinking 10 times more fruit and vegetable matter than can be consumed in a natural manner on a daily basis.

Stay away from fruits and veggies grown in South America and countries outside the USA, except for Australia. Govt oversight of their growing practices is sketchy at best.

My late sister once visited a food plant in Chile and got a tour of the growing fields they used for grapes and other fruit.............she said it gave her the willies................
