Many consumers are concerned about the pesticides used on commercially grown fruit and vegetables. But do the pesticides on produce really cause any health problems? This Sunday, on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen get the answer from Dave Stone, a toxicologist and director of the National Pesticide Information Center.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
