As the title indicates, this app from the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) helps you figure out what pesticides are on your food before you buy it. According to the app, an apple has a potential 42 residues, for instance.
The app comes with a helpful chart if you want to know which ones are neurotoxins, hormone disruptors, carcinogens, or developmental or reproductive toxins. Though by that point, you might already be standing in the organic section.
This is what Pesticide Action Network says:
“Use this app, share it with others: we built it to help move the public conversation about pesticides into an arena where you don’t have to be an expert to participate.”
