If it’s Summer, it must be Strawberries..

…or not!  The news  from California is that the use of pesticides containing carcinogens and neurotoxins has been approved for use on strawberries. The fumigant previously used is being phased out to reduce the impact on global warming which is commendable but perhaps  a better alternative could have been chosen. Most of the strawberries in the grocery stores are from California so we now have the alternatives of buying only organic or not eating strawberries altogether…sad.
