I have been so upset ever since I read this article...another reason to buy organic...help those who don't have as many choices!

Can you imagine being a momma in this situation?

Wow, that's horrible! I feel foolish for not having thought of this before, but I usually don't buy organic bananas because I figure you peel them. Now I will be buying organic because I don't want to condemn anyone to live with the effects of pesticides.

It's very sad and what's sadder is the lack of choice that these nations often don't have.

It is beyond infuriating that American's owned companies and still produce these toxic chemical and sell them to other countries when they are illegal to use here. Its more murder in the name of profit and it makes me sick.

Me too cause after all we are talking about mostly poor people and certainly the US government has no stake in saving the lives of people who can't help to promote our selfish interests, i.e. middle east.
