According to a new study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, women undergoing infertility treatment in the U.S. who consumed conventionally grown fruits and vegetables (and therefore covered in pesticides) had a lower chance of pregnancy and a higher risk of pregnancy loss. However, consuming low-pesticide-residue fruits and vegetables was associated with higher odds of pregnancy and giving birth.

“This is more difficult for those already vulnerable due to their socioeconomic circumstances. Avoiding pesticides becomes an ‘environmental justice’ issue, making it all the more important to reduce use of pesticides throughout agriculture and adopt more sustainable and health-promoting methods for food production.”
