<< can we assume that a lot of the food in the store does not come from
American farms but are crossing the border in big lots. can we assume that
most those pesticides come from the good old USA and the food is coming
back here. can we assume these trucks are not inspected very good so we
have no idea where what is going. can we assume that even if pesticides
are found unsafe in America the American farmer will fight to keep them
because of money. >>
Actually, this stuff was documented from FDA records in testimony before
Congress. Much of the produce is arriving by ship, but the idea is the same.
It comes from countries which import pesticides that cannot be applied in the
US, but are still manufactured here for export. The percentage of these
shipments that are tested is miniscule, tests often reveal excessive levels
of pesticides, yet much of the produce in those shipments that test
contaminated have already moved on into the foodstream by the time the results
are returned from the labs.
