1. Almond Farmers Using Pesticides
Sadly, almond farmers use large amounts of pesticides. As many as nine pesticides have been found in the state’s almonds, with the leader being chlorpyrifos. The Pesticide Action Network found that 35.7 percent of the almonds tested contained dangerously high levels of pesticides that could pose dangers to brain development in children.
Almond milk might seem like a safer choice than standard cow’s milk, but the above dangers and problems cannot be overlooked. Without a doubt, almond farming is not ideal and not without extreme dangers.
