How to choose organic food
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) does a wonderful job helping consumers navigate the often confusing world of organic food. They create yearly lists of the Clean 15- produce that is safe to buy conventionally since it is low in pesticides and the Dirty 12- produce it is important to buy organic due to high pesticides. This is a wonderful guide for grocery shopping!
As Integrative Practitioners we often advise getting natural nutrients and vitamins from fruits and vegetables rather than pills and tablets, for a long healthy life. But how natural are natural products?
