How Do You Like Them Apples?

I don’t like them apples at all.

Here’s a jarring example of why it’s important to buy organic, especially those “Dirty Dozen” produce items.

If this is the amount of pesticide they feel comfortable using in orchards you can walk into, imagine how much was dumped on the ones you get in the store. Remember, the ones in the store are cleaned off, so they look pesticide-free when you buy them. But as apples top the list of produce loaded with chemicals, they obviously absorbed all those poisons before they were harvested and cleaned.

Know what you eat!
