Stop using clingfilm for food storage
- Avoid clingfilm when storing foods. It contains plasticisers that can leach into food. The FSA says to avoid wrapping high-fat foods such as cheeses in clingfilm, and not to use it in contact with food in a microwave.
- Wash and peel all fresh fruit and vegetables to reduce exposure to pesticides – even if it claims to be ‘ready washed’. Then discard the outer leaves of leafy vegetables.
- Increase the proportion of seasonal produce you eat. It will reduce your exposure to anti-fungal and anti-bacterial chemicals commonly used to extend shelf-life.
