Beware Apple with Becox Wax

I got this from an email sent to me by one of my friends. It tells us that we should be careful when eating apples. The letter indicates that the apple is more than one year old and to make it look fresh, they coated it with becox wax. Is this true or not?

Well, I try to search for becox wax but I didn’t obtain any information about becox wax. What I got is just the same story that I shared with you today. That’s why I’m confused if I have to believe this email. Well, if you know something or you find something that will serve as a proof with this story you might share it with me so we can share it to everyone else. I just want our buddies to live healthy and safe.

This is the message and images I got with that email. Read it and share your thoughts to me. Do you believe it or not?


Be Careful when eating apples

Please don't eat the skin of the apple because it's coated with wax.

Check before you eat many of the fruits.

WAX is being used for preservation purposes and cold storage.

You might be surprised especially apples from USA and other parts are more than one year old, though it would look fresh. Becox wax is coated, preventing bacteria to enter. So it does not get dry.

Please Eat Apples after removing the wax as demonstrated below. Please follow this and let know others..........



With this information that is fast spreading all over the internet, I suggest that you must also be careful in buying and eating apples. Who knows this message might be real. If you want to make sure, bring a cutter and do the same thing like in the image, if they will allow you when buying at the supermarket. LOL. Just kidding!

Hmm....
I think even if it's true, everybody's been eating the waxed apple. To me, as long as it does not jeopardise our health or life, it's ok. It should be safe to eat still I think..

Thanks, Cashmere. Yeah we can still eat apples but, be sure you wash it first before eating.
