Every year Coldiretti publishes a list of the most dangerous foods that arrive from abroad and end up on our tables. Needless to say, the world of health on the table is going in two directions: Italy and a few other countries in the world comply with all directives for controls. All the rest of the planet is at the mercy of the law of money alone, with zero prevention and plenty of chemical treatments. So, let’s check the origin of these foods well because according to Coldiretti, many of them are dangerous to our health and few know about it.
Always the usual suspects
We analyzed the last three reports available online, in Coldiretti’s official “blacklist”, which were confirmed byFinancial Supervisory Authority And the situation is worrying. The usual countries always send dangerous products around the world, new ones are being added to rather than taken off. As if the health of the eater does not depend on anything. Let’s check the origin of these foods well because according to Coldiretti, many of them are dangerous to our health and few know about it. And they always come from the same regions of the planet.
India, China and Pakistan once again play the podium with absolute ease.
Specifically, the products analyzed and accused are: chili peppers, goji berries, and rice.
On average, one in five products is at risk due to the massive presence of non-systemic pesticides, whose technical names we ignore. Compared to previous years’ reports, Santo Domingo, which exports sub-standard chili, also ranks first.
Beware of food and drink
Not only food, but also drinks are on this blacklist. Pesticides are not up to standard even in tea from China. In the first 10 reported, pay attention to the one that turns out to be a specialty: the Brazilian beans. In this case, the proportion of dangerous products decreases by about 5%, but the list of contained pesticides goes up. Less risky companies in the chain, but existing ones should be avoided. Finally, pay attention to two products that often appear on our tables: olives and Egyptian pepper. Let’s leave them alone and buy local products.
