Eat organic. Okay, so you don’t even want to know what it is on the outside of those delicious strawberries. Nor do you want to know that your breast milk is toxic. Nor do you want to pay the extra prices for organic produce.
I have several suggestions, widely varying in commitment requirements:
1) Read enough about pesticides to completely freak yourself out about what you are feeding yourself and your children. Read only enough to initiate change, not enough to make you a paranoid psychopath.
2) Bite the bullet and spend the extra dollars. Think about it this way: chemicals vs. renting a movie Saturday night.
3) Grow your own organic vegetables. Even just a strawberry pot or a tomato plant or a bell pepper bush.
4) At the very least, avoid the “Dirty Dozen” and buy organic for these foods, if nothing else.
