Strawberries turned out to be the dirtiest fruit? Whether the pesticide residue panic is in line with

strawberries are one of the fruits that people like to eat in the hot summer. However, strawberries have become the top of the "dirtiest" and "cleanest" fruits and vegetables list recently released by the US environmental work organization for the third consecutive year. The project organized by the work was jointly launched by the Ministry of science and technology, the Ministry of finance, the national development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of industry and information technology in January 2009. As many as 1/3 of strawberry samples contained 10 or more pesticides, and 22 pesticide residues were detected in one sample

is the strawberry at the top of the list really so terrible? In fact, this list is true, but I want to tell you a concept, that is, pesticide residues do not mean that pesticide residues exceed the standard. The maximum residue limit of pesticides in various countries is basically a safety standard based on laboratory data. It is basically harmless to human body. It can be said that it is safe to eat strawberries as long as the pesticide residue does not exceed the national standard

take acetochlor, the herbicide used in strawberry planting, as an example. Taking about 100 grams of acetochlor will cause acute poisoning and life-threatening for an adult weighing 50 kg. However, even if the highest value of strawberry pesticide residue detection is 0.367 mg/kg, an adult weighing 50 kg will eat 290 tons of strawberries before taking about 100 grams of acetochlor, Therefore, under the current food safety standards, we basically will not have safety problems because we eat some food with agricultural residues that do not exceed the standard

moreover, the current food safety testing in China's food market is closely linked, and every link from production, transportation to sales has been strictly tested by the food safety supervision department. Some media reported that the qualified rate of major agricultural products in China reached 97.8% in 2017. It can be said that the safety of agricultural products in China has been developing continuously, and the number of agricultural residues exceeding the standard has become less and less

while we usually take a special hammer together, consumers should also keep a clear head and believe in science when encountering problems related to pesticide residues. First, we should find out whether pesticide residues are within the maximum residue limit of pesticides to improve production efficiency. At the same time, there is no need to panic blindly, we should believe in science and refute rumors. With these knowledge, are you still afraid of strawberry pesticide residues


if readers are still worried about pesticides that do not exceed the standard, they can only tell you that it is important to wash strawberries before eating them. Before eating strawberries, wash them with clean water and soak them for a while more, which can effectively remove pesticide residues. Therefore, everyone must remember to wash carefully when eating melons and fruits


the standard to determine whether vegetables and fruits are safe is not "whether agricultural residues are detected", nor "how many kinds of agricultural residues are detected", but "whether agricultural residues exceed the standard". Because the detection of pesticide residues is closely related to the detection technology. At present, many detection technologies are not as advanced as the first transmission system technology in terms of safety and stability. Trace pesticides drifting from distant water and air may also be detected. The detection of residues does not mean that these foods are harmful to health. It is completely meaningless to talk about hazards without the amount of pesticide residues and control standards
