vegetables to choose organic

top 5 vegetables to choose organic in no particular order:

1. celery
2. bell peppers
3. spinach
4. potatoes
5. kale and collards

ps: foods so unsafe even farmers won't eat them and fruits to choose organic.

ps again: a pesticide sprinkled salad is better than a donut. don't beat yourself up too much.

What about versus a PBChoc shake, cheese fries, AND a shack burger? I was a little embarrassed!

The vegetable palette is beautiful! Yuck, who knew about microwaved popcorn? Disgusting and scary.

Christ, that list of stuff farmers won't eat is terrifying! My little hometown was once dominated by potato farms, and if the chemicals used to grow them don't scare, the effects of the arsenic they leach into the ground and water is even more terrifying–we had four strokes in a single culdesac in a year!

I read that as a general matter it's the fruits and veggies with thick skins that are "okay" to have non-organic. is that true?

I was scared to eat most food for three years after reading way too many informational books. I just started to relax a little and here you go and scare the shiz out of me. Thank you!
