The Environmental Working Group produces an annual list of the “dirty dozen” and “clean fifteen” to help consumers decide which produce items they should consider purchasing organic and which items are generally considered “safe” to buy conventionally. I understand that it’s expensive to buy organic and that the issue can be contentious, but it doesn’t hurt to consider your options and be aware of what you are consuming. We all need to take our health seriously and invest in it (if possible – I realize that organic may not be an option for some people financially).
Regardless of what you decide, I advocate that everyone should use a brush to clean their produce before they consume it.
Health Tip #12: Get organic versions of the “dirty dozen”
What are your thoughts on buying organic?
