Health experts always suggest to include at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Eating colorful vegetables and fruits have multiple benefits for health. But they can also pose the risk of infection if not cleaned or washed thoroughly.
Fruits and vegetables can become contaminated during growth, harvest, storage, transportation, or preparation. They may be exposed to contaminated soil, water, or animals, or they may come into contact with contaminated surfaces during processing, packaging, or handling. Also in India, we usually buy fruits and vegetables from markets that mainly supply to the masses.
