Good article. If pesticides are of importance to you, try a website called whatsonmyfood.org and it says how many/name/what it does and the list of produce is extensive.

I know Tiffany states that "we as Americans tend to have a lot of food on hand" and to eat what you have to save money. I'm gonna go with my experience in the grocery industry and a comment by DHS that says Americans do not keep food in storage like we used to.

For me, I buy meat and bread on clearance (organic if it's there). I do make organic bread and cook from scratch, even though my ingredients are not always organic. We have decreased our food consumption considerably (70%?) but our bills are still too high in the grocery dept. I can only think that my organic purchases and coffee purchases are the culprit.
