To Buy Organic or Not

We all like to make the healthiest choices when buying food. Though I know organic foods can be the better choice, I don't always see the benefit compared to spending the extra money. I recently found these two lists on The Daily Green which clears up how we should make our organic-buying decisions.

According to the web site, the following are 10 foods that you do not have to eat organic:
- Asparagas
- Avocado
- Bananas
- Broccoli
- Cabbage
- Kiwi
- Mango
- Onion
- Papaya
- Pineapple

Also from that web site are the 12 foods that you should eat organic:
- Meat
- Milk
- Coffee
- Peaches
- Apples
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Celery
- Strawberries
- Leafy Greens
- Grapes
- Potatoes
- Tomatoes

Will it affect your buying decisions?

Why are the most expensive foods the ones we're suppose to buy organic?

I also noticed that I regularly buy foods on the "organic" list, but not so many from the other list.
