I try to eat organic, not just for me, but because the people who pick my food are exposed to all the chemicals that get sprayed on the food. Insects become more resilient to pesticides, so they use more and more pesticides in this fruitless effort.
Bats are good at eating insects! And bats probably don’t enjoy the pesticides either.
Here are the veggies on the “dirty dozen” list of foods that are more beneficial for you to eat organic.
- Thin-skinned fruits like peaches, strawberries, blueberries, nectarines, cherries
- Bell peppers
- Leafy greens (kale, spinach, etc)
