we all konw that pesticide and other chemicals can cline to the foods we eat and most of us want to minimize our exposure. That's why i would buy organic fruits and vegetables but they cost a lot more that nonorganic.So ,what;s your choice?

It depends on what stores you have access to in your given area. I am lucky to live in a farming area. We have a very good natural food store nearby and in the summer months we have fruit stands on every corner. The fruit stands are relatively inexpensive as appoosed to the others I have mentioned.

I know ythat every day they put more chemicals in food and I am very much worried about it. I decided that I would start a small vegetable plot to have some of the veggies organic. It has to be small because I don´t have more than a few square meters to do it. But still it helps. I accept that I have to share some of the veggies with the bugs. But still it´s ok. This last spring I made a couple of raised beds. The tomatoes grew nicely and I had a small crop of potatoes and arugule. Next year I´ll do it better because I have learned a lot by making mistakes.

My rule of thumb is to buy organic for the things that I am going to eat that I do not peel; peppers, tomatoes, berries, mangoes, lettuce, celery, some potatoes (golds & reds), okra, green beans, etc. I will still wash these well to get any dirts and bugs off. For those things that I am going to eat that I have to peel, I will not buy organic; bananas, oranges, tangerines, melons, kiwis, some potatoes (russet), turnips, carrots, etc. Any contamination with pesticides are washed off and then peeled off. I am sure that there are more items in each category but this is just what I can think of off the top of my head.

I prefer organic too, but it cost much so what i did i grow some vegetables and tropical fruits in our backyard... so i can save a bit. Every one prefer healthy food but the problem is can we afford?
