If you ever worked on a farm and saw how produce is handled, you would think twice. Cooking foods kills harmful bacteria. There is a risk-benefit situation. Yes, it is true that there will be some destruction of nutrients. On the other hand the removal of pesticides and the extermination of dangerous organisms has survival value also.

An old girl friend ofmine has a large organic farm, and she is very careful about pesticides. Nevertheless, the harvesting process is not very sanitary. Organic is the way to go. Remember to remove the skins of tomatoes, eggplants and potatoes, as the skins contain neurotoxins mother nature developed to prevent insect infestation.

Raw ORGANIC veggies are the way to go... Peel them after washing.
