  1. Thank you for this information. I have been racking my brain on how to improve my eating habits in an affordable manner.
    My mother is dealing with cancer and we are trying to fight it with very little indegent care or guidance.

  2. As someone who has been purchasing organic produce, this has been really eye opening. It is unfair that the EWG is warping the same data the EPA uses to create their ‘dirty dozen’ list. This makes me weary of what other unreliable reports that organizations use to push their own agenda. It is unbelievable that the EWG is pushing others to choose organic produce due to their partnership with Organic Voices Action Fund, when many US citizens can not afford organic produce.
