Are waxed fruits really harmful to humans?

In fact, in order to have a good appearance, many businesses will wax the fruit. The waxed fruit not only looks better, but also attracts the buyer’s attention, but also has a fresh-keeping effect, which can prevent mold, Bacterial infection, prevention of pest erosion, and prevention of water loss in fruits are beneficial to the preservation of fruits.

However, waxing fruits must comply with the relevant provisions of my country's "Health Standards for the Use of Food Additives" and must use "food grade waxes" such as morpholine fatty acid salts (fruit wax), carnauba wax, etc. As long as businesses use food-grade wax scientifically, they are generally not harmful to humans.
