Ever wonder just how toxic that less-expensive nonorganic Gala apple is? Now it’s easy to find out: The Pesticide Action Network’s online database, What’s on my Food?, compares organic to conventional food and spells out the ABCs of what you’re really eating and drinking. Just visit whatsonmyfood.org and click on a food to find out which pesticides may have been used to grow it. The tell-all database also discusses pesticide toxicity and health effects, and lists which foods are likely to contain which chemicals.
