abstract

Recommendations from World Health Organization encourage to increased intake of fruits and vegetables, concurrently as the use of pesticides and their influence of the quality of fruit and vegetable has been greatly discussed. Increased intake of conventional fruit and vegetables increases the content of certain chemical substances in the human body. The purpose of this study was to examine the pesticide residues in two fruits and two vegetables and to gain a deeper understanding about how different chemicals affect human health. The methods used were a survey based on a literature study based on article searches in the databases Discovery and PubMed.  Articles corresponding to the study’s aim were included. Exposure to pesticides can pose various risks to human health; increased risk of cancer and / or endocrine disruptors. However an intake of organic vegetables reduces the risk of exposure to pesticide.
