Smart Foods - Organic Diet Buddy is your essential color coded guide to fruit and vegetables, know which you should buy organic and which are safe to buy non organic. It also includes

Organic food is the safer choice when it comes to buying produce, as conventional varieties often contain high levels of pesticide residues. However, not everyone can afford to go 100% organic every time they shop. This app is a guide to which fruits and vegetables you should buy organic. There are some fruits/veggies that you should always buy organic, if possible, because their conventionally grown counterparts tend to be laden with pesticides.

By avoiding the foods most contaminated with pesticide residues, consumers can reduce their pesticide exposure by 80% without affecting their budgets.

Eat better with our simple tips and a farmer's market locator so you can find the good stuff locally. Add favorites and calculate how many fruits and vegetables you should be eating daily. Let the good health begin!

************************************
WHAT ARE PESTICIDES

Pesticides are used to repel, control or kill organisms in order to reduce their negative impact on agricultural products. Modern pesticides target weeds, insects, bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and other pests that reduce agricultural yield.

Excessive pesticide contamination can be harmful to human health. Even after washing, some fruits and vegetables consistently carry much higher levels of pesticide residue than others.

Some fruits and veggies are better to buy organic, and others are safe to buy non-organic. Some fruits and vegetables require very few pesticides for growth. Some, due to tough skins or peels, absorb fewer residues.

Many fruits and vegetables, however, are sprayed with multiple pesticides, and act like sponges, absorbing residues that are difficult to wash off entirely. Peaches have very thin skin, and are hard to wash, so it is recommended that you buy organic if you can.

    I'm finding that a lot of pretty common foods aren't listed like zucchini and cabbage. This app would get 5 stars if there were more foods listed.

    If people did their research they would learn that SWEET corn is actually listed on the Clean 15 list, therefore OK to buy non-organic. FIELD corn is GMO, and used to make other products. But not sold as a fresh vegetable. Therefore APP is not incorrect. I just wanted to clear this up!

    Why not remove corn from the safe list after so many people mentioned it already? Disappointed with the corn. It should be out of the safe list. don't mislead others.
