Alarming chemical cocktail sprayed on your fruit and veg:
How what your buy in the supermarket could have up to 32 active ingredients to get them to your plate in peak condition

'Doing the family shop, you’ll probably feel virtuous as you fill up your trolley with healthy fruit and vegetables.

But worrying new research reveals that these wholesome foods have been treated with a complex mixture of pesticides to get them to your table in peak condition — and there may even be some residues of these chemicals left on the produce you buy.

On average, new research has found, a supermarket potato will have been doused with an astonishing 30 active ingredients (an active ingredient is the part of a substance or compound that produces its chemical or biological effect).

Compare that to 40 years ago — when a potato would have been treated with just 5.3 active ingredients — and you start to see how mind-bogglingly dependent farming in Britain today is on chemicals.

The Soil Association research is based on four decades of Government data and has thrown up all sorts of worrying facts.

For example, it found a leek or an onion bought in 2014 was treated with 32.6 active ingredients on average, compared to 1.8 in 1974. Wheat — ground into flour and used in everything from bread to thickening ready-meal sauces — was treated with just 1.7 active ingredients in 1974, rising to 20.7 in 2014.'
