Posts Tagged ‘organic fruits’

I know organic fruits and vegetables tend to be more expensive than non-organic ones, and often I tend to buy non-organic due to the cost factor. However, I’ve found that the times I buy organic produce, it genuinely does taste better than non-organic. Besides the better taste, organic produce doesn’t have nasty pesticide residues on it that can add to your body’s toxin load. If you’re trying to buy organic but can’t afford to buy all organic produce, here are a couple of charts that might help: http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/summary/ One chart lists the fruits and vegetables that contain the most pesticide residue (and consequently, are the ones that you should buy organic), and the other chart lists the “Clean 15”–the non-organic fruits and vegetables that contain the least amounts of pesticide residue.
