Watch out - Color to your eyes,Poison to your health

I just thought of sharing this with you,after my visit to a vegetable shop yesterday.Just look at the photo carefully.The GREEN peas.This is what attracted me.I just took few peas and rubbed it with water.The color of the water changed to green.This means that the peas are smeared with some chemicals,to give it a fresh look!!!
I asked the shop owner about this.He politely told me "this is not for "You".Go for something else."...Well if this is not for me certainly it must not be for "You" right???
This is what we mean when we say"Color to your eyes,Poison to your health"..
So WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!!
