Apples are one of the most common household staples, as we have in the kitchen most of the time. Some of you buy apples from the store and feel satisfied, because they believe they have purchased a healthy food for the family.
However, this may not always be true, as more recent research has shown that store-bought apples are often covered with wax dangerous.
Of course, these fruits produce a natural wax, in order to seal moisture, but has been found that apples are covered often with a food grade wax order to stay in longer storage, and some food grade wax is made from petroleum products. Of course, oil is harmful to the body and health.
Therefore, you should try to find a local farm stand or a farmer’s market and buy their apples there, like those fruits contain only natural wax. However, you should clean your apples well before consumption in order to ensure that they are clean of hazardous substances.
On the other hand, you can try to clean the wax from the skin (not inside the fruit) by adding them in your sink full of warm water, a tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Rub apples and fruit with a brush, rinse and pat them dry. But the only true way to systematically reduce the intake of pesticides is to eat organic whenever possible.
