Fruits and Vegetables To Always Buy Organic

Not all fruits and veggies are created equal. Some produce contains pesticides that are very toxic to the nervous system. The best way to avoid harm? Buy organic. However,  few of us have the budget to accommodate a full organic shopping list, so which fruits and vegetables are most important to buy organic? Check out the list. 

Since most organic fruits and vegetables are priced significantly higher than their conventional counterparts we usually have to compromise and choose the least harmful non-organic fruits and vegetables.

There’s a great resource available to help you choose which fruits and vegetables to buy organic: The Environmental Working Group put together a list of the “dirtiest” produce, so you know how to shop. .This guide will help you determine which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticide residues and are the most important to buy organic.
