This topic has been one debated many times over.

As MD was born in Southern California, we were exposed to a lot of this discussion.

We can see both sides of the argument and do respect some of the comprises that have come through, such as at least buying the dirty dozen organic.

The Dirty Dozen (with two bonus items), according to the EWG, include:

  1. Apples
  2. Peaches
  3. Nectarines
  4. Strawberries
  5. Grapes
  6. Celery
  7. Spinach
  8. Sweet Bell Peppers
  9. Cucumbers
  10. Cherry Tomatoes
  11. Snap Peas (Imported)
  12. Potatoes
  • Hot Peppers
  • Kale/Collard Greens

Otter Tip: Another way to decide when to buy organic, if you can’t remember the list, is to ask yourself if you’ll be eating the skin. If you are, try to get organic.
