Buying Organic Where It Matters Most
The importance of eating organic foods is not exactly a revelation. I know it’s important. I’ve always known it’s important. But ever since watching the documentary Food Inc. I have a renewed sense of importance. That movie sure does have a way of convincing you to spend the extra money on organically grown and raised food. It’s always a struggle in the supermarket when you have the organic food in one hand and the non-organic food (costing half the price) in the other hand . . .
So when I stumbled across an article in Natural Health magazine that discussed “Buying the Organics That Matter” it really caught my eye. It explains that if you only buy some organic produce, to use the following guide to get the most bang for your buck. This list is known as the “Dirty Dozen.” The most important items that you should strive to go for the organic products include the ones that are most heavily sprayed with pesticides. These include:
apples bell peppers
The items that are the least likely to be contaminated include:
frozen sweet corn
frozen sweet peas
