      Some GMO crops have the pestides in them so no amount of washing will get it off. Washing helps for some foods non gmo crops however I personally don’t like the idea of my food growing on soil contaminated by chemicals because the plants I’m sure absorb that into them so I stick to organic and non gmo.

      I read that in some produce it does work to wash off a good amount of it, but not necessarily all of it. Especially if it has a waxy coating or soft skin washing it won’t help too much. Also GMO corn has the pesticide built into its DNA, so there is no way to wash that off. The best bet is to buy organic fruit and vegetables that have soft skin, a wax surface or are on the “dirty list”. You can also try to see if in your area their is local farms or farmers markets and talk to them and see if they do spray the plants. But washing your fruits and veggies is a good idea either way, just in case.
