What I’m curious about is is it better to eat non organic fruit, or no fruit at all? This is what I ponder as I grocery shop. I want to buy organic, but I can’t justify the cost. Am I just giving my kids little fruits of poison, or is there still nutritional benefits to eating non organic? And is it better to eat organic processed foods, or does it not matter because they are processed?
My mother says not to worry, because FDA standards are so great nowadays, but with everything that we learn, especially with all of the heightened coverage and trendiness of being green, I just wonder why do they even sell nonorganic if it’s bad for you? Am I being naive?
Anyway, I’ve decided to start buying just the dirty dozen organic rather than non organic of the worst pesticide infested fruits and veggies. Here’s the list:
|1 (worst)||Peach||100 (highest pesticide load)|
|3||Sweet Bell Pepper||83|
|10||Grapes – Imported||66|
