DAY 5

THE BLOOMIST X DR. ROB BROWN HOME DETOX

Good morning!

For the final day of our home detox, I wanted to talk about one of our society’s biggest challenges: the use of pesticides in our food.

This is something that scares many people — and rightfully so.

It’s easy to understand why farmers and foodmakers incorporated pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides in their growing process. Keeping crops healthy, and free of disease and bugs, is a terribly difficult job. At first, many of these products must have looked like godsends.

With time, we’ve been able to better understand the concomitant harm these products portend for our food.

I’ve personally adapted some practices to help keep my family (and our food) safe. I buy organic fruit and vegetables. I peel my fruit when possible, which removes the greatest amount of pesticide residue. And I keep an eye on the Environmental Working Group’s “dirty dozen,” of the produce most affected by pesticides, led by apples, peaches, nectarines, and strawberries.

This is a fast-moving, and crucially important, field of study, especially as we learn more about the effects of GMOs, glyphosate, and other issues. Refer to the EWG for new developments and pay attention to ongoing developments.

Few people will be able to develop their own supply of apples, for example — not many of us have a spare orchard in our backyard. Regardless, people can take more control over their food, growing what they can either in a backyard or balcony; it doesn’t take much space to grow a wide range of herbs, and not much more for a couple tomato plants, depending on your climate.

Beyond that, look to your community and participate whenever possible in local growing schemes. Ask your local growers about how they use pesticides — farmers typically take their roles as guardians of our food supply with the utmost seriousness and will be happy to share their strategies for ensuring its safety.

Wishing you a healthy, joyful day,

Dr. Rob & Bloomist
