Most fruits and vegetables contain unacceptable and unsafe levels of pesticides, so it's a wise choice to buy organic produce as often as you can.

However, if you need to pick and choose which foods to buy organic, the most important foods to buy organic are animal products — not produce. This is because animal foods, which are raised on pesticide-laced feed, tend to have higher concentrations of pesticides.

Non-organic meats have up to five times more pesticides than non-organic vegetables.

Non-organic butter can have up to 20 times as many pesticides as non-organic vegetables.

So when prioritizing your purchases,look for organic meats, eggs and dairy products before anything else. Unless you are vegan then you want to choose organic produce when you can and grains and beans are always available organic.

There is one exception to this rule,and that is you may be better off choosing fresh local foods over organic foods. Often, locally grown foods are raised according to organic standards that are at a  more affordable price.

You are creating you own health.
