On 31 October 2017 Reuters reported:
Women who eat more fruits and vegetables with high levels of pesticide residue may be less likely to get pregnant than women whose diets don't include a lot of this type of produce, a U.S. study suggests. ... women who ate the highest amounts of these foods ... were 18 percent less likely to have a baby. 'We already knew that women occupationally exposed to pesticides and women exposed to pesticides used in agriculture by virtue of living in or near agricultural production areas experience greater risk of infertility, pregnancy loss, and other adverse reproductive outcomes,' said senior study author Dr. Jorge Chavarro, of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. 'Our study is the first to show that exposure to low doses of pesticide residues, such as those achieved by consuming conventionally grown fruits and vegetables, may also have adverse health effects,' Chavarro said by email. ... buying organic fruits and vegetables makes sense for foods that typically have high levels of pesticide residue, he said.
