A great article by Mark Bittman on some of the realities of pesticide use.  According to the article, pesticide use has increased and may continue to get worse.  What to do?  Support and encourage the use of better agricultural practices, buy organic when possible, be aware of the Dirty Dozen” and “Clean Fifteen” at the Environmental Working Group Website (linked to in the article.) To get past the ads, click on “Continue to Food News” on their site.

This information is extremely important to people of child-rearing age and/or parents of young children.
