Everyone tells you that pesticide-sprayed produce will give you cancer and plague you with other health problems.

Ames doesn’t think the small quantities of synthetic pesticides on fruits & veggies are anything to worry about, and he explains why in a way that you’ll find really interesting. Video Rating: / 5
