The American non-profit Environmental Working Group publishes an annual “Dirty Dozen” list of foods that contain the highest levels of pesticides. Organic versions of these items are smart alternatives.

Why Should You Care About Pesticides?
Pesticides are designed to kill or deter; many are carcinogenic or neurotoxic. Reducing our pesticide load, especially for growing children, is important for long-term health. Pesticides also enter the natural food chain through agricultural runoff in conventional farms, so choosing organic is good for your body, as well as for the environment.
