According to the National Academy of Sciences, up to 20,000 cancer cases are caused annually by pesticides. Pesticide use is linked to lymphoma, leukemia, breast cancer, asthma, and other immune system disorders. The USDA estimates that 67 million birds die from pesticide exposure every year in the U.S. And 67 million pounds of the herbicide Atrazine, linked to reproductive problems, were sprayed on U.S. crops in 2003. Studies estimate that 3 million to 25 million workers annually are poisoned by pesticides worldwide.
One of the most common stressors for those who eat a plant-based diet is this: “What if I can’t afford organic produce?” Once you’re sold on the benefits of eating a high-raw diet of greens, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and more, what about the fact that most people can’t afford to buy everything organic?
(Keep in mind that the alternative to plant food is animal protein—which is consistently measured to be higher in pesticide concentrations than conventional fruits and veggies. You’re STILL better off eating conventional produce than meat or processed foods—and at least you can wash most of those chemicals off, unlike when they’re trapped in animal flesh, or things in boxes and cans.)
But we want the healthiest diet possible, even on a budget that doesn’t allow for 100% organic.
Processing your fruits and veggies in the lotus makes them fresher, far longer. These strawberry photos were taken 8 days after the moldy ones were washed with tap water, and the fresh ones were processed in the Lotus!
I was over the moon to discover the lotus Sanitizing System! Using aqueous oxygen, you can neutralize and eliminate pesticides and herbicides from your produce. With absolutely no chemicals involved, and no negative impact on your health, it also lets you quickly and easily rinse your foods in ozonated water to last up to four times longer in the fridge. And it’s a perfect household cleaner for all surfaces—less expensive than any cleaning product on the market.
I tested the product myself for a month before recommending it to you.
