Top 10 Foods With The Highest Pesticide Load

I know I've spoken about this list before, but I thought in lieu of our go organic 2012 resolution, I would post this list of the hands-down-absolute-must-eat-organic foods–as these foods are loaded with noxious chemicals and hormone disrupting pesticides.

1. Peaches
2. Strawberries
3. Bell Peppers
4. Pears
5. Apples
6. Celery
7. Spinach
8. Imported Grapes
9. Nectarines
