Pesticides in Your Produce
First off, What is the dirty dozen and what does it have to do with your health?
The dirty dozen is a list of produce with the highest pesticide residue. Not too worried about it? Maybe you should be, Pesticides are chemicals in your food and you don’t want to be ingesting high amounts of them. What are some of the side effects of pesticides? Let me just brush up on that reaaallll quick.
Pesticides have been linked to respiratory problems, memory disorders, skin conditions, depression, birth defects, a higher rate of miscarriage, neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and cancer.
The Rich B*tch at the gym tells you that she buys all organic, ugh eye roll! Bye Felicia! If I bought ALL organic groceries, I couldn’t leave Whole Foods without spending $100 just on a bag or two of produce. I don’t know about you but I’m not trying to break the bank just to buy some fruits and veggies. Save your health and some $$$ by knowing what you need to buy organic & where you can cut corners.
The Dirty Dozen:
Apples- I ALWAYS buy organic apples, Have you heard of Birthday Apples? Gross
Kale & Collard Greens
