Horticulture chair Marvin Pritts appeared on WSYR news March 3 to respond to the Environmental Working Group’s annual release of its “dirty dozen” list of produce most likely to have pesticide residues.
Pritts says the list shouldn’t discourage you from eating produce:
“I don’t think you’ll find very many scientists at all that would conclude that pesticide residue on conventionally grown produce is a problem. Most, I think 99.9 percent, would say it’s far better to eat that healthy apple or strawberry than it is to avoid it because you think there might be a pesticide residue on it,” said Pritts.
If you missed Monday’s Horticulture Section seminar, The role of botanic gardens in bio-cultural conservation with Christopher Dunn, E. N. Wilds Director, Cornell Plantations, it’s available online.
