The head of the Food and Drug Agency announced a plan to detect nitrate levels in tomatoes- feared to be rather high. Dr. Rasoul Dinarvand told ISNA that “this is part of a comprehensive plan to monitor fruits and vegetables for chemicals and pesticides.” He added that at the moment, medical schools are conducting sample studies and by 2015, a complete report on food toxins will be issued.
