We only eat organic bananas. Repeatedly I read articles that list the top 5 or 10 foods to buy organic and which ones maybe you don’t have to bother about. Bananas are always on the “Don’t waste your money buying organic…” list. Sure, most of the pesticides stay out of the fruit because of the peel. Some pesticides still leach into the ground and up into the plants though. The main reason we buy only organic bananas is because of the workers. They are getting really sick from the pesticides. The crops get sprayed whether there are pickers on the farms or not. The bananas are getting used to the pesticides so they keep spraying more and more of it. If I am going to allow my family the luxury of eating a fruit grown from so far away the least I can do is pay ten cents more a pound for organic.
Here’s a link to a YouTube video that you can watch at your own risk. It’s a tear breaker http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXaqizNBqIY.What foods do you insist on buying organic?
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. -Confucious
We go on multiplying our conveniences only to multiply our cares. We increase our possessions only to the enlargement of our anxieties. -Anna C. Brackett
