This list is great if you're strictly concerned with your own health, but if you also want to protect the planet and the people who are growing your food, organic is the best choice. (Did you know that workers on Costa Rican banana plantations have very high rates of testicular cancer and the ground below the trees is completely bare because nothing can grow there?)
That said, I can't afford to buy everything organic, but I buy as much locally- and sustainably- grown produce, dairy and meat as I can.
Thanks for the post!

root vegetables are so much more likely to absorb anything put into the soil... not speaking of sprays on top...they are a different story.... this is helpful for the budget, but I will always steer towards organic...
