An apple a day in America could have you running to the doctor with the EPA taking a ‘lighter’ view of this potentially deadly residue.
“What does that have to do with the US-grown apples now gleaming, spot-free, on supermarket shelves?
“According to EWG, in 2010, when the US Department of Agriculture last looked for DPA residues on US-grown apples, it found them on 80 percent of samples.
“Average reading: 0.42 ppm, or about four times the new European limit. In other words, the apple on your countertop would likely be deemed unsafe by European authorities.”
Somehow, I just don’t find this surprising. How about you?
