How Important is Organic?

How Important is Organic?

According to some people, everything needs to be organic. Others, who may have budget challenges, should choose which foods are most important to buy organic. For examples, bananas may not matter as much as apples. Why? Because you eat the apple skin and that is where the pesticides are found. Banana peels are thrown away.  Here are a few fruits and vegetables which should be bought organic if possible:

  • celery
  • bell peppers
  • stone fruits (peaches, nectarines)
  • berries
  • salad greens

Here are some that are less susceptible to pesticides:

  • cantaloupe
  • carrots
  • avocado
  • cabbage
  • eggplant
  • bananas
