EP07 – An Apple A Day & The Pesticides They Spray

Former fruit farmer Peter Walters joins the hosts Richard Clarke and Dr Mark Daniels in this latest podcast. In this episode Richard, Mark and Peter look at the spraying of pesticides on fruit and vegetables in farms today.

Peter talks about his experience of working at an orchid in New Zealand and sheds some light on the growing process of the apples on his orchid. The toxicity of the chemicals used on the fruit is discussed and the effect that these pesticides and sprays have on our health.

In a very commercial and financially driven world the importation and exportation of fruit is massive business, Peter, Richard and Mark talk about what corners are cut to ensure maximum yield and maximum profit off the fruit and if these again impact the consumers health.

The effect that peeling an apple before eating it has on the amount of pesticides that enter the body is also discussed along with what is the best coffee to drink, organic food, supermarkets and much more.
