Weekly Link- Strawberries! (4/4)

This weeks link is about a new pesticide being used on strawberries. It’s called methyl iodide. The pesticide can be injected into the ground or the plant. Many people are opposed to the plant because there are extremely negative affects to the farmers that have been required to use it. The chemical was named toxic, so why the heck are we going to use it in our food?!

    Dear god… this is kind of terrifying. And what’s more frightening is that we really don’t know what else is already used on the produce we buy at supermarkets.
