If it wasn't for this, sure.

If it was a very old graveyard, predating all the stuff, no problem.

If you think about it, the earth is one big graveyard. Something has died and gone back to earth on and in every square inch of it.

How old are the most recent dates of death in this graveyard. I think they started using it in this country around the civil war...not sure. But it's been around for some time. At any rate, you could probably have the soil tested and/or the apples...for arsenic, formaldehyde, and other such nasties.

Yes, why would you waste the food? And do you really think it'd be any worse than the commercially bought apples that are treated with pesticides and waxed etc?

There's dead stuff in the ground everywhere.

Exactly, I don't think commercially grown food is exactly chemical free either. This probably leans more towards organic. lol

Furthermore, Apples have enough in their seeds, no matter where grown.

To me, if it was an old graveyard (as it sounds), I would probably be okay with apples from their trees.

Graveyard potatoes, though? That might creep me out some. LOL
