25 Foods That Can Contain Harmful Chemicals

No matter where you are, no matter what time it is, it’s probably not hard for you to run off and buy some strawberries. (If you’re in the States, that is.) They’re available at every hour of the day during every month of the year. And that’s great. They’re a delicious food, full of vitamins C and K, fiber, and potassium, making them significantly better than the Ruffles you were planning on buying. Heck, those strawberries were probably even on sale when you got them.

So, what’s wrong with this? Well, strawberries aren’t supposed to be a food that you can buy at any month of the year for the cheap prices we can find them at. Modern technology is amazing, but sometimes, we rush it without thinking about the consequences. The problem here is that we have such great access to so many strawberries at such low prices because they are covered in chemicals. Pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides cover so many of our foods. They’re great because they keep the creepy crawlers from eating our food, but in the quantities that they’re applied to our foods, they can be harmful to us as well.

These are the foods full of harmful chemicals.
