The Dirty Dozen

I just returned from the grocery store, and every trip to the grocery store leaves me wondering which organic products are necessities. Organic food is more expensive than it's conventional counterparts, but it's worth the cost if it reduces health risks. I did some online research and discovered a great Web site called The Daily Green. I found a list called the dirty dozen, the 12 fruits and vegetables containing the highest pesticide residues as well as the 12 which do not.*
