As parents, we push our kids to consume more and more vegetables and fruits. Unbeknownst to us, these supposedly nutritious fruits and veggies might lead to pesticide poisoning in kids.
It is not unknown that farmers spray a generous amount of chemicals on their produce to protect them from insects. While some of them are easy to get rid of by washing, some get absorbed in the fruits and veggies and enter our bodies. These chemicals that are entering our children’s bodies can cause many health problems and even increasing the risk of cancer. This is why a natural veggie wash should be used to thoroughly wash fruits and vegetables before they are munched down by kids.
Adverse Effects of High Pesticide Exposure on Children
Pesticides are more harmful to children and infants as compared to adults because their immune systems are still developing. Harmful effects of pesticides in kids can include childhood cancer in children and autism. A study conducted on 1,139 children found that kids with higher exposure to pesticides were at an increased risk of ADHD. The risk percentage was placed as high as 50-90%. A study conducted on organic pesticides used in gardens revealed that rotenone might cause Parkinson’s disease later in life.
Pesticides enter children’s body slowly with every food item that is not washed correctly and accumulate over time to cause serious health issues. Accidental exposure to a massive amount of pesticide can also cause death.
It can also enter their body when they:
- Swallow pesticide directly
- Breathe in large amounts from the air
- Absorb large quantities through their skin
Signs of Pesticide Poisoning
Some immediate signs of pesticide poisoning include:
- Stomach pain
- Nose bleed
- Gum bleeding
- Breathing distress
- Vomiting and diarrhoea
How You Can Protect Your Child
- Pick organic fruits and vegetables for your child.
- Always buy in-season fruits and vegetables.
- Peal fruits and vegetables and discard the outermost layer.
- Wash the produce under running water to remove pesticides present on the top layer.
- Choose an organic veggie wash product that will offer thorough cleaning.
