The Solution

It is found that women who ate pesticide-treated fruits and vegetables had lower success rates getting pregnant. Whereas, women who consumed organic food reduced the risk of pregnancy loss and increased fertility.From the study, physicians are encouraging people to move towards eating more organic foods.

What now?

Sometimes, it is not just fruits and vegetables you would need to look out for when it comes to pesticides. So, any food at all that is made from produce on a farm would need your attention as to how the crops were taken care of.

Be mindful of what you are putting into your body, even if the packaging says it’s organic. You have to check the back the products to ensure that is free from genetically modified organisms (GMO), additives, and is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilisers.
