You must wash your fruits and vegetables. Nothing can beat fruits and vesgetable out of your own garden. A lot of us have to purchase our fruits and vegetables from our locals stores. Produce maybe sold out in the open where anyone can handle it. It may be handled hundreds of times before you purchase it. Our hands can carry a lot of germs and viruses. It is important to wash all your vegetables and fruits before serving them to your family. We have no idea who handled our prouduce and where their hands were last. Wash your produce!
