I try to buy organic when I can, but being on a limited budget, I can't always justify it.
Turns out, some non-organic fruits and veggies have been found to contain more traces of pesticides and others.
According to The Doctors, it's more important to buy the following items (dubbed "The Dirty Dozen") organic because they usually have thinner skin and are harder to wash:
- Bell Peppers
- Sweet Corn
- Sweet Peas
- Honeydew Melons
- Sweet Potatoes
