    'Q mark' rated fruits, veggies fail toxic residue tests

    Just crazy.. Eat your fruits and veggies they said..

    'Q mark' rated fruits, veggies fail toxic residue tests | Bangkok Post: news.

    Prokchol Ousup, a Thai-PAN coordinator, said the overall results showed that 46.6% of samples contained residues higher than the accepted safety standard level. Notably, 57.1% of fruits and vegetables granted the “Q mark” by the National Bureau of Agricultural Commodity and Food Standards, were to be found contaminated at unsafe levels.

    She said 25% of the products certified as being organic, which were supposed to be free of chemicals, were found to contain chemical residues exceeding the accepted standards.

    The network said that fruits and vegetables collected from modern trade outlets where consumers pay higher prices did not have much higher safety standards than those in wet markets, with 46% of produce from modern trade shops containing residues exceeding the standards, compared with 48% from fresh markets.

    Ms Prokchol said residues of 11 prohibited substances were found in the samples.

    In breakdown, 100% of red chilli had harmful residues exceeding the standards, followed by basil and long beans (66.7%), Chinese kale (55.6%), Chinese cabbages (33.3%), morning glory (22.2%), tomatoes and cucumbers 11.1%.

    However, 100% of the cabbage samples were free from harmful residues.

    For the fruits, 100% of tested oranges and guava were contaminated with harmful residues exceeding the standards. Dragon fruit, papayas and nam dokmai mangoes also found to have residues at 71.4%, 66.7% and 44.4% respectively.

    We all have to die from something I guess.
    It's a bit like the people that say jogging for half an hour a day makes you live longer.......It's been discussed that you only live the amount of time you spend jogging longer than others....so if you don't like jogging, it's a waste of time 555
    A blowjob is better than no job!!

    I think it's half a joke, but it was a Danish professor that claimed that happiness is way more important than exercise to get a long life. If you like jogging it's fine, but if it makes you miserable every time you think of it, don't do it 5555
