As I clearly said in the in the post "all KIDDING aside"...............................:+O and I ain't no "botanist" either just using plain ole common sense and funnin' a bit.
If you can't get organic then you do the best you can. On a favorable note a world renown juicing pioneer claims that the pesticides all stay in the fiber. For me the jury is still out on that one and would like to hear that from other sources. In the mean time if I'm gonna take the time and put all the effort that goes into cleansing my system I'm going to do everything possible to get the most out of it and not second guess anything.
If you live in the states and near any large municipalities organic produce can usually be found with a little effort. Farmers markets will usually also carry organic produce.
