Eating Organic Produce Reduces Pesticide Exposure by 67%


A report by CTV National News showed that switching to organic produce can reduce your exposure to pesticides by 67 percent. This is pretty significant considering the amount of fruits and vegetables we (are supposed to) eat on a daily basis.

Whenever I'm asked if one should switch to eating organic, my answer is always, if you can, especially when it comes to produce. If you are just learning about organics, switching to organic produce is a great place to start. Look for the fruits and vegetables on The Dirty Dozen list. 

Here is the news report:

If you'd like to purchase the book mentioned in this report, "Toxin Toxout: Getting Harmful Chemicals Out of Our Bodies and Our World," you can do so here. It is by the same authors as "Death By Rubber Ducky."

Below is a video Randy and I filmed in 2007, when we first started Naturally Savvy. In this video, we take you on a store tour of our local Whole Foods Market. The information is still very relevant, and we even interviewed the store's marketing manager. Enjoy!
