Organic fruits & vegetables

When it comes to pesticides, not all fruits and vegetables are created equal. Apparently, if you make sure the following 12 fruits & veggies are organic, you can cut down your exposure to the nasty stuff by 90%:

  • Fruits
    • Peaches and nectarines
    • Strawberries and cherries
    • Apples and pears
    • Imported grapes
  • Veggies
    • Spinach and lettuce
    • Potatoes and celery
    • Sweet bell peppers

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  1. Monica,

    I don’t mind the price difference. It is pricey for many reasons – more crops lost to pests, less yielf b/c of no chemical fertilizers, less demande, etc – but I look at it as an investment in my overall health. Treating cancer caused by the prolonged consumption of toxic pesticides would probably cost me a lot more on the long run…

  2. Poxa, a gente se alimenta ou se envenena? Muito chato…se dá pra fazer alimentos sem pesticidas…o problema é grana mesmo…botando veneno em tudo o lucro é maior. Um horror.
