No: Never eat foods with pesticides on the food. Always wash your food. Of course, I am talking about fruits and vegatables.

be sure to wash your fruits and vegetables with High alkaline water or special fruit/veggie soaps as most pesticides are distributed in oils or waxes so regular tap water won't get them off. I recommend Vollara Water machine with water pH turned up to 10 for more info email me at www.medacpc.com
