Home Cooking & the Dangers of Washing Food With Water

Although I eat out most of the time, I actually prefer home cooking. It is healthier, I think. We are constantly reminded of how important it is to lead a healthy lifestyle with the water we drink, the fruits we eat and the food we choose to consume.

In fact, drinking water not only maintains the regularity in our blood flow, the glow also radiates from our skin. Who doesn’t want radiant, healthy skin, right? Additionally, there is no doubt that fruits and vegetables provide us with the required vitamins, antioxidants and minerals to keep us feeling healthy and energised.

The consumption of “at least 2 litres of water a day”, or the use of water to wash fresh fruits and vegetables may sometimes lead us to wonder just where the source of water flowing from our kitchen sinks and water dispensers come from.

From the use of fruits and vegetables served in familiar high-end cuisine dishes such as Strawberry Compotes and Zuchinni with Ricotta, to the irresistible homemade fruit salad, it is safe to say that a major contribution to the preparation of the fruits and the prevention of a horrible food poisoning is CLEAN WATER. If you have been to India, you would never take clean water for granted!

But HOW exactly can we know if the water we use to wash our fruits and vegetables every day is clean? This is where water purifiers come in.

“It’s bound to be clean with detoxification with the use of a vegetable and fruit detoxifier!”


1. Detoxification removes presence of pesticides, insecticides and harmful chemicals used from fruits and vegetables.

We know how harmful it can be to our body if we have a large intake of food with harmful substances in them. Just running them over tap water does not remove all the dirt, pesticides and traces of human handling on these products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirms that nearly 75% of fruits and vegetables contain at least one form of pesticide in them. Hence, the use of a vegetable and fruit purifier enables full sterilization of fruits and vegetables to ensure they are safe to be consumed.

Pesticides and insecticides are proven by the U.S Cancer Panel Report 2010 to be one of the main causes of cancer. Hence, prevention is indeed better than cure.

● Pesticides are used in the growth of fruits and vegetables to control possible diseases caused by insects such as grasshoppers, bugs and rats.

● However, the failure to remove pesticides effectively from fresh fruits and vegetables can lead to a series of health consequences such as:

1) Birth Defects and higher chances of foetal death
2) Leukaemia
3) Brain Tumour

2. It protects those around you

The cleanliness of fruits and vegetables for consumption is as important to those around you. Food-borne illnesses spread quicker than we think, and a feast that we’ve decided to set up for our family with non-detoxed foods served may just take its toll in the long run.

● In three months, 4000 individuals fall ill with headache and diarrhea symptoms due to unclean food served to them.
