Why is this information good to know? Well, it means that if you cannot afford to eat organic fruits and vegetables every day, then you can focus on only buying organic with foods on The Dirty Dozen list, and not buying organic versions of the foods on the Clean 15 list. In this way, you can save money and dramatically reduce the amount of pesticides that you eat. Remember that the next time you visit the produce section of the grocery store.
Staying healthy is probably the most important thing we can do. If you don't have your health, you cannot really enjoy life. It's that simple. And one of the biggest causes of disease is obesity, that is, being extremely overweight. This is especially a problem in developed countries, where people simply eat and drink too much. They are also too sedentary, meaning they don't move around enough.
