I try to buy organic foods when I can, which I did before I got cancer, too.
But choosing apples for 4.89 a pound versus apples for 1.29 a pound is a crazy hard choice to make when the grocery bill triples before my very eyes.
So I go for what the “experts” say are the fruits and vegetables most susceptible to chemical absorption. I’ve been following this kind of thing for years—and today I got this list that has what the majority of the “experts” say about pesticides and the best produce-eating bet for your non-chemical buck.
I’m not saying that if you eat food treated with pesticides that you get cancer. But for me, any way I can steer clear of what’s been treated with man-made toxins as I fight the natural one trying to take over my body already is the right thing for me to do.
(PS–read what the group says about cosmetics…yet another area of my life that I’ve changed.)
