Found this through a FB friend: www.whatsonmyfood.org.
When I pulled up the first few foods I was curious about--blueberries and beef fat--it showed lower percentages of how often these residues were found than I would have thought. Then I pulled up apples, potatoes. Ouch.
Looks like there's lots of useful info on this site...
The main message is great: "By eating food produced organically or without pesticides, not only will you be reducing the amount of pesticide in your body, you will be helping create a better environment for other people, the planet, and future generations. By engaging in political action to change our food system, you'll be part of making sure that everyone can eat their meals without pesticides on the side."
I understand what you're saying, Chuck. Pesticide residues definitely aren't "meaningless" in my book, either!
That said, I think these forums are more about what can we do, and how do we live a life that doesn't even need to think about pesticides and herbicides. You know, re-skilling for the right ways to do things.
What's on conventional, non-organice food is definitely a motivator, but it's not the way. That's why I stuck this here in MD.
And, btw Marina, I didn't even look at kale--55, wow! I would think kale would be one of the more hearty kinds of vegetables. Go figure.
