Pesticides: The New Dirty Dozen
There is a new dirty dozen out by the Environemental Working Group.
Check out the top 12 dirtiest most pesticide ridden foods we should buy organic and the “Clean Fifteen” that we don’t have to worry about so much.
Although we should always take a spin around the organic foods section even if we are on a budget, it is nice to know what foods are safe to eat non-organic.
Still organic foods are not always pricier than the pesticide grown alternatives. Pesticide free is good for the environment as well as our health.
I know everyone is strapped during these tough economic times, but remember that your money counts as ballots and the more you spend on organic, the more you support organic farmers, and the cheaper organic food will inevitably become, if not the standard.
And along with everyone else, organic farmers are likely suffering more than anyone because no one can afford pricier food.
