Women’s Health Matters – Is organic produce worth your while?

Be aware of the texture of the fruits and vegetables you are purchasing. Fraser notes that a softer and porous texture means your produce has a greater risk of pesticide absorption. If you are weary of the effects of pesticides, Fraser advises that if you have the option, choose the organic alternative of the following produce items that have high levels of pesticides:

  • apples
  • celery
  • strawberries
  • peaches
  • spinach
