Pesticides are chemicals used in conventional agriculture and these residues remain on the food we eat even after they're washed.
Research clearly shows that pesticides and chemicals in food adversely affect our health. The more we avoid exposure to these hazardous pesticides, the better.
All certified organic foods must be produced according to strict rules and regulations. Foods labeled "100% organic" must contain only organic ingredients while those labeled "organic" must contain at least 95% organic ingredients.
Buying organic food can be expensive so we've created a list of some popular fruits and vegetables that contain both the highest and the lowest levels of pesticides. This way, you'll be able to make informed, healthy choices without spending a fortune.
