The #1 Food to ALWAYS Buy Organic

Every time the average American eats their healthy fruits and veggies, they also consume residues of synthetic chemicals from insect killers, fungicides and fertilizers. You could avoid all that by choosing to buy organic, but that’s not a budgetary reality for many in today’s economy. What to do?
