What can I do about pesticides? If you missed the webinar…..

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Sep 02, 2011

Did you miss our webinar about how to get all the pesticides and herbicides off all your greens, veggies, fruit, and even MEAT if you eat it? (We’ve got over 160 chemicals sprayed on our food these days, and water/veg soap or even bleach removes only about 60%.)

This solution uses no chemicals. It’s inexpensive and easy.

It’s so brilliant. I’ve known about ozonation for years. I understand it as a way of cleaning the atmosphere, a way of cleaning your carpets, and more. It has many industrial applications.

But how exciting that it’s been miniaturized! I love mine—it’s giving me peace of mind, especially with my soft-skin fruit when I cannot get it organic.

Now all we need is a giant zapper to eliminate the most evil corporation on the planet: Monsanto. (They’re now breeding Roundup right into the seeds. Some fruits have pesticides INSIDE the fruit. I will be finding the best ways for us to get involved to stop the GMO, seed-monopolies, and pesticide-excess madness and keeping you apprised.)

Anyway, in addition to getting rid of all the external chemicals, it kills all viruses and bacteria, too, including e Coli! And you can ozonate water to be a very effective cleaner of pretty much any surface in your home (and also the carpet, upholstery).

Here’s my mini-report on it (this report has been removed because it is outdated), so you can learn about it quickly and easily. Especially check out the photos of how fruit lasts up to 4x longer when you treat it in the ozonation.

Enjoy! I have mine in my kitchen the past couple of months and I love the peace of mind it’s given me, eating a plant-based diet that does utilize some conventional (non-organic) produce. Very exciting–possibly the best thing I’ve found in the 4 years since I put the GSG site up. (Thanks to reader Donna H. in California who traveled several hours to my class, partly so she could tell me about this invention.)

Note: we no longer sell the Lotus Sanitizer in our store.

    Robyn, I thank you and do enjoy your blog. And I have respect for you. Tell me, are there other food blogs that you respect and follow?

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Lots of PEOPLE I respect, but I don’t honestly follow anyone just because I don’t have time! If something’s worth my time I read it, mostly books and research papers though. 🙂

  2. Paula says:

    Hi Robyn! I have been reading lately on the dangers of food that has been microwaved. What is your position? Do you use a microwave?

  3. Patti says:

    Robyn – I’m very interested! Is the Lotus product the LBU100 or LSR100? Thanks much!

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Patti, it’s the LSR100. 🙂

    I just received mine today and have been experimenting. It took 4 cycles to get conventional grapes clean! Maybe it took so long because the first 2 cycles I used water straight out of the tap, and here in TX it is practically hot. So then I used ice water. I also used the spray bottle to spray down the two toilets that my 7 year old pees all over and I can never get rid of the smell no matter how much I clean. There is a drastic improvement in air quality already! Yay! My only complaint is that my spray bottle doesn’t mist at all! Only seems to have a “soaker” setting no matter how much or which way I turn the nozzle. Did I get a bad one or is this just the way it is? The instructions say you can mist pet beds and upholstery to deodorize, but I could never do that with this bottle.

      Rachel, Tersano told me that soft-skinned fruits have a ton of pesticide and take longer–Steve said GRAPES are the worst! (And of course, they’re a “dirty dozen” food.) Worth the time to get it all off. Here’s what Steve told me about your issue with the spray bottle:

      She should be able to twist it in (clockwise I believe) to get into mist setting. If not, she may be able to take that end off and see if there is a piece of plastic there stopping it from screwing on further and getting it into that mist setting. We do just purchase that item and sometimes they don’t quite come in the way we like them. The other option is she takes a spray nozzle she likes from another product and instead of throwing it out using it with our bottle. The top threads are all interchangeable.

    Hey, Robyn, I just noticed the blog entry about 4 cycles thru the sanitizer to clean a bunch of grapes. The other day I was about to launch on my 4th cycle of a bowl of strawberries that were apparently very contaminated when I just decided it was too gross, so I dumped $6 worth of waterlogged berries in the compost. DId I give up to soon? Is there ever a time when you decide enough is enough and quit trying to sanitize? (also, if anybody has any tips on how to sanitize soft-fleshed items like berries withuot ending up with mush, please let me know!) 🙂

      Laura, the lotus won’t make them soggy–any more than putting them in water will–so I’m not sure what happened there? But Steve Hengsperger told me when he’s dealing with seriously contaminated stuff that takes several cycles, he calls it “good enough” after a few cycles especially when it’s getting up to 95%+.
