Fruits are delicious, sweet, and healthy. You can gain so many benefits from fruit because they are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants. However, like many other foods, they have also been abused by corporate greed.
CEO’s are the last person that you want to trust with your food. They’re only interested in one thing – money. Because of their primary profiteering concerns, they very seldom take our health into consideration. Fruit manufacturers are known to remove the natural wax that surrounds fruits such as apples. They reportedly do this because it makes the fruit last longer. However, there is little proof that this actually works. In fact, many people believe they do this because it makes the fruit shinier, and appealing to consumers.
The wax that they cover the fruit with is petroleum based and toxic for your health. They say that the wax keeps out fungus and bacteria, but it isn’t exactly the truth. The ingredients in the wax are startling. It can even be life threatening! If you’re concerned about the legitimacy of your fruit, all you have to do is pour hot water over them. The wax will appear immediately. It appears as a wax-like, white film over the fruit.
The wax coating is composed fungicides and preservatives, artificial dyes, and coloring that make the fruit look more appealing. When you are deciding which fruit to buy, go for the most organic brand you can. The smaller the brand, the better.
