I had to include this as one as my questions since the news on television the other day talked about buying organic produce.

Did not get a chance to jot the information down since I was busy in the kitchen. Do you know exactly which type the news said not to buy and what to buy? I cannot imagine anybody would talk about not buying certain organic produce. I think I only saw one not to buy and it is broccoli. I have been eating 3-4 organic apples a day 5 days a week sprinkled with lots of ground cinnamon.

Each year, the Environmental Working Group conducts an extensive study to determine which produce are the most and least contaminated.  From the data, they compile a list of which should be eaten organic and which are OK to eat conventional.


Buy these organic (in order of most to least contaminated):

peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pears, grapes (imported), spinach, lettuce, potatoes


Conventionally grown OK (in order of cleanest to least clean):

onion, avocado, sweet corn (frozen), pineapple, mango, asparagus, peas (frozen), kiwi fruit, bananas, cabbage, broccoli, papaya.



If you want the full list, you can download it from
