Desifection of Greens and Fruit

(1/2) > >>

TugaMan:
Hi all!

Today I was shopping some fruit and greens and was also about to buy something called "Amukina". It probably has some other name in other countries but, to put it short, it's a disinfectant used do add to the water where we wash greens and vegetables we eat in salads and so.

My doubt is: is it really needed? Is, sometimes, too much "cleanness" bad for the immune system? Can my immune system become lazy from too much disinfection and someday in the future not know how to fight back? I'm asking this knowing that my immune system is already weakened by "nature".  ;).

My VL is undetectable and my CD 878 (24%)

Your numbers r so good. On top of that if u still have doubts ???
U can try peeling all fruits whenever possible.
When u wash green, u can add a little vinegar ( go into google & check out the properties)
Hope this bring alittle peace.

With a weakened immune system, food sanitation cant be overlooked, even when dealing with vegetables. Outbreaks of E-Coli and other food borne illnesses get traced back to fruits and vegetables all the time.
I recently read an article about various vegetable wash products that concluded that they did a good job of washing out your wallet and little else. I use a weak bleach solution (1 oz per Gallon of Water) to soak ALL of my vegetables  for a few minutes regardless of how clean they look.  I guarentee its cheaper and more effective than the products out there.

Ive heard the idea of allowing your immune system to get "Lazy' but I dont know if its valid, or if disinfecting vegetables would have any effect....

Also, the vegetable washes all seem to contain alot of Alcohol ( dont get any in a cut !!) and seem to speed up wilting quite a bit.

just greens? i use Heinz white vinegar (diluted w/water) to clean all fruits and vegetables especially raspberries

the chef in me forbid me to wash mushrooms, strawberries, raspberries, they absorb so much water , it becomes like sponge.
i usually use a kitchen brush.
