    I find that it’s better to buy local grown food from a farmers market than anything sold at grocery store. It’s much easier to know that you’re really getting what you’re paying for if you’re willing to talk to the people selling at the farmers market. I don’t trust the big grocery store retailers to accurately label the produce that they sell. Plus I think it’s important to help out local farmers.

    I’ve also heard that different types of pesticides are used on different crops. Hence, if you eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, you will tend to get less of any one particular kind of pesticide. Since the “danger is in the dosage” of anything consumed, that approach may produce some benefit over eating a whole lot of just two or three kinds of produce.
