Only Eat Organic Produce
There's nothing wrong with choosing organic when possible, but if it means you're skimping on your daily intake of fruits and veggies, it's not a good move. "The WORST advice my patients have given me is that you should ONLY eat organic produce because conventionally grown fruits and veggies contain too many pesticides. This is totally false and without scientific basis," said Lauren Harris-Pincus, MS, RDN, author of The Protein-Packed Breakfast Club, to POPSUGAR. "Choosing organic vs. conventional produce is a personal decision, but there should be no fear in feeding yourself or your family any fruits and veggies to improve health and life expectancy," she said.
