  1. So this isn’t very scientific at all. “According to researches” Please. It’s articles like this this that give Vegans and thus while food movement a bad name and reduced credibility. This is not the first crappy article from you. I’m seriously about to “cancel” my subscription.

  2. Vegan Addict- I have never heard of a product who deeply would take all the bad side effects and all the pesticides from a veggie or fruit, if this product is so miraculous , please tell us how it does it, cause we need to know so, I wasn’t criticizing just for fun, you took that way I have no idea why, maybe you’re the troll, because you should be selling your product instead of attacking someone who liked your page. It is not clever, nor nice, nor intelligent, I have no idea if I am talking to a woman or a man..so can’t use sir. Thank you. Just let us know please how it does, for sure because once inside the fruit I just cannot see how we can take it off with a superficial cleaner. And I am not apologizing for anything because my intention wasn’t offense, but starting an intelligent conversation here what didn’t happened. You must probably be a miss, because when people take things personally normally it is a case of females….lol, not a sir, right? what do you want? people to bow down to your comments? like Hitler? Good try.

  3. Just will add salt to your food, I prefer to use apple cider vinegar it’s just 1 tbsp for a few cups of water or buy organic because it’s more than just pesticides, it’s growth hormones to make them grow bigger and gmos and many fruits have pesticides that grow into the produce through the root like apples through the core. I doubt any of those pesticides are removed I’m sure it’s just the residue that gets removed
