I worked in a food laboratory for a very famous company and I can tell you that even organic vegetables are full of stuff that you don't want to know
about. Mainly because you can't grow anywhere far away from toxins. Car exhausts, airplanes, factory fumes will all find their way into the most
organic vegetables. Even if they are grown in a green house, the contaminants will come from water, soil and composts. As a matter of fact, the
concentrations are much higher in vegetables than in meat and vegetarians will eat more of them and face the consequences.
It is disgusting but true that almost no food stuff is completely 'safe'. In the end we almost felt like giving up food altogether [me and
colleagues in the lab] but we decided to go with the opposite and just eat what is there or you will go mad.
Consumers are a little at fault for wanting big homogenous food. Meat has to be red, apples have to be the same size and we want all of it to last
Apart from that it is all about money. I hate what humans are doing. We may have evolved capabilities but we are not adult enough as a species to
handle them properly.
