    How about scaremongering people about Junkfood? The solution to this is to discourage toxic pesticides,

    Then wash it thoroughly with baking soda and water. Or just peel the skin off!

    The dirty dozen from the EWG is terribly misleading claptrap. https://vitals.lifehacker.com/why-you-shouldnt-buy-organic-based-on-the-dirty-dozen-1689190822 https://groundedparents.com/2015/07/20/follow-the-money-why-you-cant-trust-the-ewgs-sunscreen-guide/ http://safefruitsandveggies.com/blog/ewgs-next-move Fear mongering. For an actually science and evidence based analysis of pesticide residues: http://safefruitsandveggies.com/pesticide-calculator It's all based off USDA pesticide survey data (just that the dirty dozen mangles the numbers) - the levels measured are well below those that would pose a safety concern.
