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.

  6. Hi five folks thanks for the guide … I’ve never really bothered to shop for organic foods I seem to fall into the trap of it looks good it should taste and do you good I have family and friends who always buy organic foods myself i got into the habit of peeling all my veg so I think this would cut out all the nasties from my cooking and leave what nature intended us to have whats inside the natural package … but after reading this post i will now spare a thought for the farmer and subscribe to checking out the organic produce with the farmer in mind it seems to ad up and make perfectly good sense to apply these thoughts you have pointed out above…

    All my best to you and your organic thoughts
