Growing vegetables and fruits with the use of pesticides and other chemicals is fraught with further increases the risk of cancer, provided that their child eats. According to The Daily Mail, can be particularly at risk preschoolers.
Experts at the University of California under the leadership of Professor IRVA Hertz-Picciotto investigated 364 children. Not attained the age of five years, 207 of them. It turned out, the consumption of arsenic, dieldrin, DDE (dichlorodiphenyl of dichlorethylene) and dioxins has reached a dangerous amount.
The excess of the safe level of toxin acrylamide detected in more than 95% of patients. The contents of this byproduct differ processed potato chips.

Program research was provided by the study of heavy metals (arsenic, lead and mercury) and persistent organic pollutants (dioxin, DDT, dieldrin, chlordane) and by-products generated during the processing of food, for example, acrylamide.
In accordance with the recommendations of scientists food should assume a variety of products used in food. This will avoid the accumulation in the body of one toxin in too large quantities. In addition, the location of some of the compounds have on the upper part of the fruit that gives the chance to wash them away.
