    "avoid pesticide residue"


    "You can reduce your exposure to pesticides by as much as 80% if you avoiding the most contaminated foods in the grocery store.
    To do so, you need the latest info from the why the Environmental Working Group's "Dirty Dozen" list of foods most likely to have high pesticide residues. Since 1995, the organization has taken the government data and identified which type of produce has the most chemicals."

    Aw, Mike

    Do you realize some of us read this while having breakfast? You know, like my blueberry muffin.

    I wonder if I should still have those globe grapes packed for my road trip.....

    This type of articles really irk me.

    Example: Avoid those fresh potatoes. But, hey, don't hold back on the french fries, because that deep frying and salting will sure do wonders!

    Some of the organic stuff is really expensive. We have a Farmer's Market, (mostly organic), every Saturday A.M., 52 weeks a year, that's within walking distance. I have to follow my wife over there every week, just so she doesn't spend $50 on two small bags of fruit and vegetables. :laugh:

    LLoyd, any bets about the percentage of those 'farmer market stands' that stop at the big grocery store, buy the produce, slap a new price on it and then sell it to the unsuspecting at the 'farmer's market'?

    I know that in my area, the number of folks who raise organic crops is pretty small and the competition if pretty high for market share.

    I would guess that the other growers would "out" the cheater pretty quickly.
