30 Bananas a Day!

I have no idea how everybody is getting by, there has to be people living this way that have the same problem as me.

1. Very very expensive to go all organic

2. not available, not an option.

These are the 2 reasons why I cannot go organic.

I already spend ridiculous amounts on my fruit because I buy from woolworths & coles. I know they are ripoff but they have such good quality that I cannot pass.

The reason I am posting is I am hoping I can get a response from a long-timer or somebody that is very educated in this area. I wanna know if the pesticides will get to me in the end, I wanna know if I can eat non organic greens and not pay for it dearly in the end

Hi there, I'm by no means an expert in science/nutrition but my dad is a biology professor at a major university and we just attended a forum on this exact topic.  I'm just paraphrasing from what I learned at that discussion but if you'd like I can try and refer one of those professors to this discussion :) what I learned from them was that in nature there are good and bad chemicals everywhere.  Humans, and all other species, evolved with these good and bad chemicals.  That's why we have livers; to filter out the toxic crap.  Chemicals in most pesticides are actually fairly similar to naturally occurring pesticides that pants produce on their own.  For environmental reasons man-made pesticides certainly are not ideal (which is why many choose organic) but on an individual level pesticides on your fruits/veggies won't kill you or hurt you too much.  Like other posters have said rinsing all of your produce off several times (and with different rinse combinations) will get rid of a lot of those man made chemicals.  The ones that are left over will be taken care of by your body's natural detoxification processes.  Either way you're still doing your body a great deal of good by eating clean, even if it's not 100% organic.  Good luck!  

Well stated...

And even on the "Dirty Dozen" list, it is pointed out that if organic is not available for greens, omitting them is worse than the chemicals usually on them..

? On Dirty Dozen?  worth Google moment, several comment sites on this years list, including the "Clean 15" recommendations...

Though I am sure that the 30BAD police team may have their own valid comments on it...

In that case, ignore the things on the lists that are not 30BAD endorsed...

wow! how impressively narrated! someone's future biology professor herself!..
