dirty dozen

My husband is a farmer.  And I love that about him.  But I can’t keep a plant alive to save my own life. 

However, I have taken an interest in the whole organic versus conventional farming debate, especially as it relates to human health and nutrition.  Makeesha posted a link to this CNN article which provides a general surface view of the harm of pesticide use and offers some practical guidelines for produce shopping.
