Forty-five different pesticides are regularly applied to succulent, delicious peaches and nectarines in conventional orchards. The thin skin does not protect the fruit from the dangers of these poisons. Ninety-seven percent of nectarines and 95% of peaches tested for pesticide residue show contamination from multiple chemicals. Apart from pesticides the common bacteria that contaminates these two fruit types is Listeria. These produce may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that can cause fatal infections in young children, seniors and those with weak immune systems. The bacterium can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
