Apple a day? Go organic

This recent piece from Beth Hoffman at Forbes highlights five good reasons that organic apples are better than conventional. As Michael Pollan put it when he tweeted the link,”if you can afford one organic item, make it this one.”

Why? Well, organic apples have less pesticide residue, which is better for you, the environment, and farm workers. Hoffman has other good points to make too, and it’s a quick read, so check out the full article yourself.
