There are two things I am sure I would do if I were rich: get weekly massages and eat completely organic. (Except for the occassional Lil Debbie Zebra Cake because, well, they're Zebra Cakes!)
Alas, I do not have that luxury, but I have progressively included more organics in my diet. I regard the extra cost as something I have to do as much as I can. Because I can't justify the cost of eating exclusively organic, it makes sense to buy organic products that when non-organically grown contain the highest amount of pesticides.
The Environmental Working Group has compiled a list of the most contaminated produce along with the least contaminated.
Here's the top 12 produce most contaminated by pesticides:
• Bell Peppers
• Imported Grapes
• Red Raspberries
Keep these in mind when you're shopping. EWG tells us why.
