I wonder if the list is similar in other countries. It's so annoying that so many of these foods are so good for you, blueberries, strawberries, kale, silverbeet and I love nectarines, they're my favourite!
Fortunately in Australia organic food is becoming far more accessable and as such the price hike isn't so prohibitive as it used to be. Eat organic when you can and support the industry. Let your local shops know of your choice and why. Money talks and this is one more way to help out the good guys and undercut the bad guys!

I liked it better when we were able to see the enemy! Years ago, the only thing we were concerned about was scrubbing any visible dirt from the fruits and vegetables we purchased. Now we have to concern ourselves with chemicals that we can't see. How do we know whether or not we've removed them? Perhaps pesticides should have specific colors, so we'd know when they were washed away. The natural gas industry gave natural gas a distinctive odor so we'd be aware of dangerous leaks. I'd rather be safe than sorry!
