A Cheap Way To Avoid Chemicals In Your Food

May 25, 2014 1 min read

I would love to buy organic locally grown food all the time. Really, the main reason I want to be rich is simply so I can shop at Whole Foods, and get Mama Green Organics delivered weekly. Unfortunately, I’m generally broke, and although organic is definitely the healthiest and least chemical-ridden choice for fruits and vegetables, it’s certainly not cheap. 65% of produce samples in the US test positive for pesticide residues, chemicals which have been linked to pediatric cancers, decreased cognitive function, and behavioural issues. [caption id="attachment_47832" align="alignnone" width="490"]yeah... no thanks. yeah... no thanks.[/caption] The Environmental Working Group realizes an annual report on the chemical residues that remain on foods after harvesting. The EWG provides a list of the “dirty dozen”, the foods that retain the most pesticides, as well as the “clean fifteen”, the foods with the least amount of pesticide residue. If you can’t always afford organic, these lists are invaluable: chemicalfree (quick note: these refer to pesticides, the clean fifteen are not necessarily GMO free) Even if you can’t buy organic all the time, you can hone in on the veggies that you should be buying organic. Of course, these lists aren’t a guarantee for chemical-free eating, it merely gives you the foods that are statistically better or worse in regards to pesticide residue. It may be preach-y, but I will always suggest buying organic and local above all else, even though the cost can be daunting.
