Personal Care Products

Many of the make-ups, lotions, soaps, deodorants and other personal care products you use every day contain harmful chemicals.  There are responsible personal care product companies and Dr. Kraskow can help you find them and shows you how to make safe and sustainable choices.

Pesticides in Food

Of the 43 different fruit and vegetable categories tested, these 12 fruits and vegetables had the highest pesticide load, making them the most important to buy or grow organic:

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Lettuce
  • Grapes (imported)
  • Pears
  • Spinach
  • Potatoes

Conventionally-grown strawberries, in particular, were found to be highly toxic due to a poisonous blend of pesticides in a previous 2007 study as well.

But be VERY careful as the list above is for fruits and vegetables.  Non-organic meats have far higher concentrations of pesticides than all of the fruits and vegetables.  And the highest concentration of pesticides is actually in non-organic butter.

So if you can only buy one organic food item it should be butter
. Next priority would be meats and once those are addressed, you will want to focus on the fruit and vegetable list above.
