The dirty dozen...these are 12 fruits and vegetables that you really should buy organic. If not grown organic these foods are grown with high amounts of pesticides and chemicals or have a tendency to absorb many of the chemicals used during the growing procedure.
Yes they will be more expensive. Yes you probably won't get as many in a box or bag. But if your health is truly important to you, you should go out of your way to purchase these fruits and vegetables in the organic variety.
Eating these foods non-organic will lead to the consumption of pesticides that are harmful to your health. Pesticides are designed to kill and we use them for a reason. Ingesting them may result in a variety of health issues and the increased risk of developing a degenerative disease.
The dirty dozen include:
4. Bell Peppers.
