Organic Foods: Shopper's Guild

From time to time I like to update this blog on the latest info regarding organic foods. As I have mentioned many times, pesticide use has become toxic to our bodies and our environment. Here is an article that I posted in May about a study that came out, linking ADHD to pesticide exposure. Many fruits and veggies can be scrubbed to remove the pesticides off their surface. But with berries, it is next to impossible. Experts are now suggesting that people, especially those with young children, only buy berries that are organic. The Environmental Working Group came out with this easy to print guide that you can carry with you in your wallet. They also offer an iPhone application. Just remember to add ALL berries to the list, as blueberries are the only ones listed on their guide.
