What Produce Should be Eaten Organic?

Peaches: Native to China and found in writings dated back to 10th century B.C. The peach is the cousin to the nectarine and is symbolic of long life.

Organic is anything that has not been treated with pesticides or artificial additives. Foods, fabric, plants, etc. can be listed as organic if it has not been treated with pesticides. You might say it doesn’t matter, but it does especially for  pets, babies, and those with an immune or autoimmune condition. If I had two apples and sprayed one with pesticides, which would you eat? Don’t get sick from something that you can prevent. Here’s a list provided by www.foodnews.org with foods you should eat organic:
