Couple of years back, when I was in Bangalore, I went to the fruit market near Banashankari bus stand in Bangalore to buy mangoes. I asked the seller do you use chemicals to ripen them. He told if you are worried about all that stop eating mangoes. He told farmers use hormones to get 2 mango crops in a year. I left the place immediately without buying the fruits. Recently there was a news about watermelons - farmers/sellers inject a carcinogenic chemical dye into the watermelons to make them look red inside. Farmers dip the whole bunch of grapes (when they are on the vines) in pesticides because spraying is not keeping the pests away. What is there to eat? Don't tell me organic - a big farmer with hundreds of acres holding told he sells little worm infested and diseased produce (after doing all the pesticide sprays) as organic We are in a stage where air, water and food has become toxic. How long can we go like this?
