If you only buy some organics...

...Buy these. I just got this in my email. The most pesticide-ridden foods are, obviously, the most important to buy organic. And they are:

According to John La Puma, MD -- RealAge expert and author of the new book ChefMD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine -- going organic with these 12 fruits and veggies could cut your exposure to pesticides as much as 90 percent!
  • Fruits
    • Peaches and nectarines
    • Strawberries and cherries
    • Apples and pears
    • Imported grapes
  • Veggies
    • Spinach and lettuce
    • Potatoes and celery
    • Sweet bell peppers

Thanks for the shout-out, Erika.

Especially because eating out and buying groceries is getting more expensive, buying "best value" organics is the way to go: more bang for your buck!
