Why I Buy Organic

My family and I love fresh fruits and vegetables and one of our favorite vegetables is kale.  Well, kale happens to be listed as one of the the top pesticide laden vegetables which means that no matter how well I wash it, the pesticide remains on the leaves.  Can you guess which fruits and vegetables... top the list of most pesticides?  Number one are apples followed by celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, sweet bell peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce and kale.  Which fruits and vegetables have the lowest pesticide levels?  Onions, corn, pineapples, avocados and asparagus.  Eat organic!  It's worth it!!
