A growing body of scientific research reveals the threat of pesticides and the impact they have on our health, and the integrity of the earth’s soil and water supply. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) in a nonprofit organization with a commitment to protecting individual health on a global level. Check out their website at www.ewg.org for more information on consumer products, foods, water, and toxins. I use EWG frequently for research and information when vetting a subject. Below is their list of foods to always buy organic – and I agree!

  • Strawberries
  • Grapes
  • Celery
  • Peaches
  • Spinach
  • Sweet bell peppers
