Should I buy Organic? Which ones?

Organic Food Shopping Basics
Research from Consumer Reports' February 2005 issue concludes that some items are worth the organic price premium, but others might not be because their non-organic versions are less likely to be contaminated with pesticides, or they have weak standards associated with the organic label.
BEST TO GET ORGANIC:
· Apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, raspberries, spinach, strawberries
· Meat, poultry, eggs and dairy
· Baby food
BUY ORGANIC ONLY IF PRICE DOESN'T MATTER:
· Asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, corn, kiwi, mangoes, onions, papayas, pineapples, sweet peas
· Breads, oils, potato chips, pasta, cereals, canned and dried fruits and vegetables
