For a while now, there has been an ongoing debate about eating organic.  We all want pesticide-free food but we also must be cognizant of the fact that organic food is generally more expensive.  Is it worth the cost?

The answer: this is personal.  Your bank account, your body, your decision.  That being said, there are certain foods where due to their porous skin and the way they're grown, it is recommended to opt for organic.  Similarly,  there are foods, such as fruits with peels, where buying organic may be less significant.  

The "Dirty Dozen and Clean 15" is an easy guide for when to buy organic, and where it's ok to save on cost. The EWG, Environmental Working Group, comes out with this list every year.
