Choosing what organic foods to buy

Certain fruits and vegetables grown using pesticides have been shown to retain high levels of chemicals, even after washing. Root vegetables are especially good at sucking everything out of the soil they are grown in, including toxic chemicals used as fertilizer. Most of us can only afford a few organic items, so opt for the organic versions of the high-chemical foods, including: carrots, beetroot, potatoes, turnips, apples, capsicum ,celery, grapes, nectarines, cherries, spinach, tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, pears and potatoes.

Some foods that generally don't retain pesticide residue after washing include: asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, corn, kiwifruit, mangos, onions, papaya, pineapples, oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit.

Of course you can slash your organic food bill drastically by growing your own food.
