Food chemical poisoning is mainly caused by agro-chemical remnants. Among all pesticides in common use, organo-phosphates account for a large percentage. People who consume these often exhibit several symptoms: dyspnea (shortage of breath), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and excessive phlegm within minutes; these symptoms may disappear after an hour. Agro-chemical remnants can cause acute poisoning, while consuming small amounts over a long time might result in chronic poisoning, especially for farmers, vegetarians and agro-chemical factory workers. In other words, pesticides can cause life-threatening conditions after long exposure.
Research also shows pesticides can affect the brain, personality and even behavior. Cerebral cortex research indicates an internal relationship between these disorders and pesticide poisoning. Pesticides such as Dimethoate will cause body deformation and may cause cancer.
Agro-chemicals are widely used in modern intensive farming and it is becoming a big challenge to avoid consuming agro-chemical remnants.
Pesticides have chemical structures, which are similar to bacteria and fungi. Ozone breaks down these structures and damages the carbon chain bonds. This causes the agro-chemicals to decompose into CO2, H2O and other harmless substances. Test results show that Kona Ozone Water can remove a high percentage of pesticides from fresh food in seconds.
