A new report warns us which fruits and veggies we need to be eating organic. And those we shouldn't waste our time and money on. The report (CNN via my friend Bora) -- as I spit out the non-organic domestic blueberries I'm eating:
THE DIRTY DOZEN - foods that you should always buy organic or from a farmer that doesnt use pesticides/chemicals
Sweet bell peppers
Spinach, kale and collard greens
THE CLEAN 15 -
Not all non-organic fruits and vegetables have a high pesticide level. Some produce has a strong outer layer that provides a defense against pesticide contamination. A number of non-organic fruits and vegetables contain little to no pesticides.
