When to buy organics

When should I buy organic?
These foods are referred to as “the dirty dozen” — they’re the fruits and vegetables most likely to have residue from pesticides, and they’re ranked in order from most to least toxic. This is where buying organic has the most benefit.

Fruits and Vegetables are good for you

20 Oct

Eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Despite this widely known benefit, a report issued in March 2007 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, based on a 2005 survey, finds that only 32.6 percent of adults are eating fruit two or more times a day and that only 27.2 percent are eating vegetables three or more times a day. These latest results reveal that too few people are meeting even the minimum government recommendation of five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day. This underscores the need for continued interventions that encourage greater consumption of these foods among American adults.

Are you one of those people not eating the required amount of fruits and vegetables?  If so you’d better start today.
