Should I only buy organic?
All plants were created equal- originally, but not all plants were grown equally and not all plants have the same genetic make-up that they used to due to GMO (Genertically Modified Organism) practices. Seeds have been modified to withstand bug infestation and weather. Buying organic produce means that you are reducing your exposure to harmful pesticides, herbicides and giving yourself a health boost while you lose weight! The Environmental Working Group (EWG) for the fourth year has warned that people who eat large amounts of kale, collard greens, and peppers should buy organic, as these vegetables were frequently found to be contaminated with insecticides toxic to the human nervous system. On the other hand, avocado, mango, cabbage, onion, and cauliflower all made the , as they were least likely to hold pesticide residue even when grown non-organically.
