Organic or Not?

Here is an awesome article that prioritizes which fruits and vegetables you should purchase organic, including details on why.

For example, you should buy organic potatoes because they grow in the ground and have thin skin and therefore soak up all the pesticides. Bananas, on the other hand, grow high up and a have a thick skin and should be fairly well protected.

Cool stuff to help you save a little bit of cash while eating healthy. You're welcome, Mary. :)

Like I don't know that stuff already? Dude, come on. A little credit. If you're just interested in your own health, then this article is a great guideline. However, if your interests in purchasing organic food includes the protection of the workers whose efforts are responsible for planting, growing and harvesting that food, or the environment in general, you should buy as much as possible organic. (Please see NNWT blog entry 3/31/08.) Better yet, buy local, whether it's certified organic or not. And don't leave give me shit about my laundry detergent research anymore either.

Whoa whoa whoa!! I didn't give you shit about laundry detergent. I honestly liked that post. Charlie's is part of a new generation of brands that are doing everything right. Good value, good for the workers and good for the environment. Like Ben & Jerry's were in the beginning. They are poised for greatness but squeezed out by big companies.

As for the rest of your comments, thank you for proving your geekness has surpassed the Heller's in at least one area.
