CNN has published a list of the most contaminated fruits and vegetables that you could buy in a supermarket in the developed world.
Are things different in India?
I would argue that it is much worse in India.
Indian farmers make indiscriminate use of pesticides and, to make things worse, several pesticides that are banned in the developed world are still allowed here.
It will be useful and interesting to have a ‘top 20 offenders’ chart for fruits and vegetables sold in supermarkets, or by vegetable and fruit vendors, in India’s largest metros.
