Which organic foods should I buy

Many people want to buy organic fruits and vegetables as a way to avoid exposure to pesticides, but doing so can be expensive. The non-profit group, Food News, helps consumers decide what items should you buy organic (when to spend the extra money) by publishing a list of 43 fruits and vegetables rated by pesticide content. For example, non-organic onions retain almost no pesticides, while non-organic peaches and apples have high pesticide content.
