10 Foods To Buy Organic

1.) Apples

The FDA states that more pesticides are found on apples than are found on any other fruit or vegetable -- a grand total of 36. One test found 7 CHEMICALS on a SINGLE apple!
If/When you do eat apples (Organic Granny Smith Apples are the best choice) or any other fruit, use them sparingly and never consume them in the form of fruit juice, which is basically just a glass full of fructose.
2.) Baby Foods

An infant's immune system is less developed than an adult's, and more vulnerable. Nonorganic baby foods tend to use fruits and vegetables that have been treated with chemicals.

3.) Butter and Milk

Dairy cows eat grains that are heavily treated with chemicals, which show up in the milk. Non-organic milk can also contain bovine growth hormone and antibiotics.
However, RAW milk is nearly always better than organic milk if it is purchased from a conscious farmer. In that case, it may not be certified organic, but it will essentially be organic anyway, and drinking your milk raw is KEY.

4.) Cantaloupe

Cantaloupes often are contaminated by five of the longest-lasting chemicals. Dieldrin, a very toxic and carcinogenic insecticide, still gets taken up through the cantaloupe's roots even though it was banned in 1974.

5.) Cucumbers

Cucumbers were ranked the 12th most contaminated food and the second in cancer risk due to their pesticide content.

6.) Grapes

Grapes get treated with numerous chemicals, especially Chilean grapes, which can be sprayed with as many as 17 of them! Grapes are also, whether organic or not, especially high in fructose.

7.) Green Beans

There are over 60 pesticides that are registered for use on green beans in the U.S.

8.) Spinach

The chemicals used to treat spinach may cause cancer or interfere with hormone production.

9.) Strawberries

Strawberries are among the most contaminated of all produce.
Once again, be wary of overdoing it with fructose when you eat fruit.

10.) Winter Squash 

Winter squash, like cantaloupe, can absorb Dieldrin (very toxic insecticide) from the soil.
