I'm asking only about fruits and vegetables on the EWG's 2018 Dirty Dozen List which advocates buying organic for these fruits and vegetables, because they are likely to contain pesticides when conventionally grown:
- Sweet bell peppers
The Clean 15 and Dirty 12 lists are listed together, more readably, here.
I've been abiding by this list, but are there reasons not to? What are the counterarguments?
- Assume that cost isn't a difficulty, and I can pay for conventional and organic varieties (or is the correct term form?)
- Assume that both conventional and organic varieties are equally available.
I buy organic:
- to try to dodge harmful pesticides, but I know organic foods still use pesticides),
- because some organic fruits and vegetables taste better.
