Yes, pesticides are in everything -- but you'll never guess the source

Fruit is chock full of delicious nutrients and deadly pesticides that science didn't even foist upon them. This is because nature wants to protect itself and wishes death upon us at every turn. Stu Burguiere addressed celebrity-hyped pesticide scares on "Wonderful World of Stu."

Chief among the pesticide nay-sayers is Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle company GOOP, which frequently features breathless blog posts claiming that the pesticides in your fruit are killing people. But...they're not. Fruits make and always have made their own natural pesticides. They "started the deadly biological war" against pests, Stu said.

But don't take his word for it. Dr. Bruce Ames, a professor of molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley found that 99.9 percent of pesticides consumed by Americans are plant-produced. In fact, we eat ten thousand times more natural pesticides than synthetic.

Stu came to the sobering conclusion that "the only sure-fire way to eliminate pesticides from your diet would be to not eat anything. At all. Ever." However, it doesn't actually seem to be the problem actresses like Paltrow would have you believe.
