You want to know what I hear when I recommend buying organic? “It’s so much more expensive!” Patients of mine who don’t live in Southern California also say, “It’s impossible to find in winter.”
When it comes to produce, some non-organic options are safer than others. Please use this list when doing your shopping.
The 12 Most Contaminated, AKA The Dirty Dozen
* Bell Peppers
The 12 Least Contaminated
* Sweet Corn
* Sweet Peas
* Kiwi Fruit
Asking your grocer to carry more organic, local options will encourage them to supply the demand. As the demand grows, more farmers will listen.
Live natural. Live Well.
