When given a choice

When given the choice, do you buy organic fruit and vegetables? They may be a little more expensive than their conventional counterparts, but the extra cost may be worthwhile, especially if you’re not keen to ingest residues of agricultural chemicals. Conventionally grown strawberries, apples, nectarines, celery, spinach and tomatoes have been shown to be among the most pesticide-laced produce you’ll find on supermarket shelves. Fruit and vegetables that are less prone to this problem include avocados, sweet corn, pineapples, cabbage, onions, mangoes and cauliflower.
