Here’s is Part One of our list of the top 10 most important products to buy organic, as well as a recap of why it’s worthwhile. Number 10 Milk
While milk is a natural product, all the antibiotics and hormones that go into high-yield cows most certainly aren’t. Some studies on supplements like recombinant bovine growth hormone (RBGH) used in conventional milk production have suggested links to early puberty and other hormonal abnormalities.Number 9 Eggs
Though they are a terrific source of protein, most eggs are produced using a range of antibiotics and hormones on the chickens that bear them. Given this, the health gains of eating organic eggs are similar to those of drinking organic milk. Essentially, organic eggs mean fewer hormones in the chicken and fewer foreign hormones (or chemicals acting as hormones) in your body.Number 8 Potatoes
Chlorothalonil, often used on potatoes, can be particularly harmful to children. In fact, chlorothalonil was deemed so unhealthy by the state of New York that it was at the center of a lawsuit against the U.S. federal government due to its extensive commercial use.Number 7 Spinach Spinach is one of nature’s most healthy “superfoods,” one that nutritionists and doctors keep on encouraging us to eat. Spinach is another regular feature on pesticide-occurrence lists, with one sample of spinach in a study having residues of more than 20 different pesticides on it.
Number 6 Grapes
Grapes from Chile add a load of detrimental fungicides to your diet. Even U.S. grapes contain methyl parathion and methomyl, a carbamate insecticide listed as an endocrine disrupter. You’ve got it -- bring in the organics on this one!
