Dear Ina, I agree with you. Comercial growers get exemptions to use some  
really nasty stuff. If you go online I think there is a site that rates just 
how  toxic a chemical is. Lets face it if you drink 5 gallons of water I 
don't think  you would survive. We live in a world saturated with too many man 
made  chemicals, antibiotics and weed/bug killers. It all started after WW1 
when  doctors wanted to save lives, then in the 1930s with farmers wanting 
to grow  more food. I doubt if there are many places that are chemical free 
anywhere  on earth. Have you ever seen the profit reports for drug/chemical 
companies. If  people would moderate the use of many of these chemicals it 
would help. But we  do not live in a perfect world.

Alberto,  do you have any idea of all the poisons which are sprayed on 
the  commercially grownveges here?  I don't know what it is like  
elsewhere, nor could I tell you,but have read enough articles to decide  
me I would rather eat my own home grown than even the supposedly organic  
ones, which have a mix of poisons sprayed on them which individually are  
safe, but altogether make another poisonous brew.

Anyonewhocan tell  me what is sprayed on commercially grown fruit and veges?

Or what will  kill Kikuyu grass? As neither vinegar nor boiling water 
affects it  unduly.
