You want to know what I hear when I recommend eating organic? “It’s so much more expensive!” Patients of mine who don’t live in California also say, “It’s impossible to find in winter.” So I get that buying all organic isn’t always realistic or plausible.
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
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.
