Food is the way all mammals sustain life. For humans it means much more then that – we use food for emotional comfort, for socializing, it is a part of many human activities and finally it is also the tool for treatment of many diseases. Nutrition is the science about the food that breaks our meals into invisible proteins, carbs and fats, calculates calories, and delivers complex formulas of daily values and caloric intake.  You’ll ask – what is so important about all these numbers when I just want to eat a healthy meal? And that would really not matter if that was a culinary website. Well, for medical purposes here we will discuss all that interesting food chemistry and math.

It is well documented that pesticides are incredibly harmful for human beings. Some of the harmful effects of pesticides include neurological problems, birth defects, fetal death, lymphoma, leukemia, reproductive problems, skin problems and nervous system maladies.

Some vegetables, such as leafy greens, are by their very nature more likely to have a higher concentration of pesticides than say, an orange, which has a thick, protective skin to keep out pollutants.
