Love this! Reminds me to recheck the "Organic 15" (or is it 10?!?) list and memorize which foods MUST be bought organic!

jen - i just googled and came up with this:

That will free up your money to buy organic produce with the highest pesticide loads that EWG has identified from their “Dirty Dozen” list. Those 12 items are, in order: celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries, nectarines, bell peppers, spinach, cherries, collard greens, potatoes, and imported grapes.

the same site has 'sweet potatoes' on the list of things that don't need to be bought organic, though - so who really knows?

and like this potato project girl says - it doesn't just stay on the skin so you can't wash it off.

scary stuff.
