I don't wash my fruits/veggies- HELP

forzagto | Feb 27, 2009 11:31 AM

The good news is that I eat a bunch of fruits and veggies every day- bananas, apples, carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, berries, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, peaches, etc. The bad news is that I never wash any of them before eating. I don't know what it is but I either forget, am lazy, or eating in the car or at the office where there is no sink. At best I will use a paper towel to wipe off dirt on the mushrooms but that is about it. I know it's probably very unsanitary but have never been sick at all from it; convince me that this is pretty bad and that I need to change the habit. Thanks
