One more reason to avoid meat: pesticides in animal fat

Another disadvantage of animal products is that pesticides accumulate in their fatty tissues. While traces of these chemicals can be found on grains and other plants, when animals eat them, these traces build up in their bodies over the years. And if you then eat these fatty tissues, pesticides remain in your body for a long time. Plant foods are generally much lower in pesticide residues, compared to animal products, and organic produce is lowest of all. The safest choice? A variety of plant foods that are grown organically.
