This wallet-sized guide for shopping organic makes food safety easy when shopping. 

Going organic has never been easier. A wallet-sized guide for shopping organic, offered by The Environmental Working Group, identifies the fruits and vegetables that are generally pesticide-free, even when conventionally grown, as well as the produce usually grown with pesticides.

Pineapples, frozen sweet corn, avocados and onions are grown with minimal use of pesticides, while peaches, apples, bell peppers and celery are among those most contaminated by the chemicals.

According to the Shoppers' Guide, the buying public can reduce the risk of ingesting pesticides by 90 percent by purchasing organic produce. And buying organic helps in other ways: Organic production conserves the earth, helps protect wildlife and is more energy efficient, requiring fewer petroleum-based products than conventional growing.

The Shopper's Guide is free and available at, although a free registration is required.
