No, it's not your imagination. Non-organic produce has additives to make the food last longer. Years ago people would make daily trips to the market for fruits and veggies, now we often only go once or twice a week, so we expect produce to last longer. Unfortunately the methods of production and distribution of the food has changed to meet our lifestyles.Originally Posted by brunette trixie;3953714;
I don't like anti-bacterial cleansers myself, though they're a necessary evil in my workplace (hospital). In my area, it's just not possible to wash our hands every single time we touch a patient so we must use the cleansers. In the winter our hands are absolutely raw with the combination of the cold weather and the high alcohol content of the hand cleansers. I have a small bottle in my truck for emergency cleanups, but we don't use them at home.
