Foods you must buy organic

Some foods are grown in a way that exposes them to more toxic chemicals than others and some foods are notorious for being exceptionally filthy when you get them at the grocery store.  Here is a list of produce you should make sure you buy organic to avoid the toxins.  They may look healthy, but unless they are organic, they are contaminated:

Kale:  Though a super food, kale is usually heavily contaminated with pesticides.

Lettuce:  More than 50 different pesticides have been found on lettuce.

Potatoes :  More than 35 pesticides have been detected in tests conducted by the USDA.

Grapes:  Imported grapes can have over 30 chemical pesticides and raisins have high pesticide residue tests as well.

Spinach:  Has tested positive for a whopping 50 different chemical pesticides.  Frozen spinach usually has about the same amount.

Strawberries:  A regular on the dirty dozen list, unfortunately these delicious berries have been shown to have over 60 different pesticides on them though frozen strawberries have less.

Apples:  Over 40 chemicals have been found on apples.  Apple sauce and apple juice also contained pesticide residue.

Peaches:  We all love peaches, but not the 60 plus pesticides found on them.  Canned peaches have much less but it is best to go organic. 

Celery:  Tests on this crunchy enjoyable veggie turned up over 60 chemicals. 

Nectarines:  Overall, 33 different pesticides have been found on these, though domestic grown nectarines tend to be less contaminated then imported fruits.

Blueberries:  Pushing over 50 varieties of chemical residues, these berries should be bought from the organic section.

Why you should eat citrus regularly

From legendary antioxidant properties to fresh breath, citrus fruits have a variety of flavors and health benefits.  

Here are a few of the benefits of eating citrus fruits!

Oranges:  Oranges are packed with vitamin C, the detox vitamin, and flavanoids which remove free radicals and help reduce the risk of developing heart disease.

Grapefruit:  Grapefruit lowers cholesterol, helps lose excess weight, and helps prevent certain types of cancer.

Mandarins:  Hesperidin, a flavanoid present in mandarin oranges, works together with vitamin C to produce collagen making it a valuable snack for the beauty conscious.

Limes:  Lime juice can be used to help become more alkaline.  Limes have more vitamin C then lemons and are also helpful with constipation.  Limes are good for the skin and can be used as a natural deodorant.

Apples Prevent Obesity And Diabetes

They say: "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." And now science says it actually does!
 (according to new research.)

An apple a day can cut your heart disease risk nearly in half, according to a new study in the Journal of Functional Foods. The results: Eating an apple a day lowered blood oxidation of LDL (or “bad” cholesterol) in the blood by 40%. They also tested this with supplement users and found they also had lower levels, but not as significant as the apple eaters. High levels LDL can lead to atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke. Apples have a great content of polyphenol antioxidants, which could be what makes them so effective at blocking oxidation, says study author Robert DiSilvestro, PhD, a professor of human nutrition at Ohio State.
