organic this but not that

its kinda scary when you start reading about the
pesticides that are put on our food
which you really cant get all off the food
no matter how hard you try

its sort of like taking a tsp of a pesticide and sprinkling
it on your food
go to this website
click on the food
see whats on it
wonder what this does to a baby if they eat it every day

the average child eats 5+ pesticide servings a day

atracine is in over 90% of drinking water systems
not in europe since its banned there
not at the country n since we have our own rainwater system
atracine is that stuff in weed and feed that some of you
put on your yard so you can poison your kids
god forbid poison your pets

peaches have over 20 honey b toxins on them
not here at the country n
we go el naturale

strawberries have over 45 pesticide residues on them

there are 3 lbs of pesticides per person in the us per year put on our food

apples those fruits that are suppose to keep the doctor away
has over 47 pesticide residues on them
many are hormone regulators

now what i try to do or like to do is to buy organic as much as possible

now if i grow it here at the country n
i dont worry at all
i know its organic and chemical free
here is an organic pesticide free country n salad

one of the problems at the grocery store is that the organic stuff
doesnt last long
now if we get it at a local farmers market then it was picked that day
usually or the day before and will last like it does when we harvest
produce here at the country n

the price seem so high at the store also
what i do is sort of a compromise sort of

here are the dirty dozen of contaminated foods
try to farmers market those or get organics at the market
heres a good link on the dirty and less dirty ones

dirty ones
apples   celery   cherry tomatoes   cucumbers   grapes   nectarines
peaches   potatoes   snap peas   spinach   strawberries sweet bell peppers
also hot peppers kale and collard greens

ive read that celery is really loaded with stuff but apples are bad too
we grow some of these here at the country n but just seasonally
its hard to find them organic out of season locally

'clean 15'
asparagus   avocados   cabbage   cantaloupe   cauliflower   eggplant
grapefruit   kiwi   mangoes   onions    papayas   pineapples  
sweet corn    frozen sweet peas   sweet potatoes

so now you know which to get organically
which to buy non organically
sort of

do you want to eat a lot of poison or just a little poison

i guess
you just have to choose your poison
