Have you ever asked yourself, “Do I REALLLLY need to buy this Organic?”

And its a great question.

The truth is that some foods you absolutely MUST buy organic because they are so laden with pesticides. Pesticides have been linked to cancer, developmental disabilities, endocrine disruption, and many other serious problems.

And you know that organic food can be pricey. That’s why it helps to know which foods are the most – and the least – contaminated with pesticides.

Here’s an infographic that breaks it down courteous of our friends at FoodRevolution.com namely, Ocean Robbins.

I believe the actual inforgraphic was created by Juicing with G gives critical information about which are the most, and the least, pesticide contaminated fruits and vegetables.


This chart does not address GMOs. So sweet corn shows up as being less contaminated with pesticides, mainly because the husk catches most of them. But if the corn is genetically modified, then it is itself literally registered with the EPA as a pesticide. Watch out for that!

Thanks Ocean!
