What to Buy Organic and What - Not

Lots of people believe that being a vegetarian (or vegan) equals leading a healthy lifestyle. Which (in some cases) couldn't be more further from the truth. For example, when I stopped eating meat, I thought I've done a great deal to the health of my body and simply continued living my life as before, only excluding meat from my menu. Then, on my regular check-ups it popped out, that my bad cholesterol is too high. And there were lots of times when I, for no reason, was feeling low and fatigued. When I started studying the matter closely, I've found out that it's not only the type of food you eat but also its
quality and the way it's been prepared. So I scratched out all fried food, sugar, canned food, food with additives and conservatives, food that increases bad cholesterol, alcohol, juices with added sugar and/or conservatives, beverages, added salt...
Some time's past on the new diet and to my great surprise I've found that it's yet not enough. That the toxins and pesticides find their way around and are still poisoning me. And the answer is to eat & use organic as much as possible.
I don't know about your countries, but in the ones I've lived in so far, eating & using organic instead of non-organic has been quite more expensive. My next research was on what we should definitely have organic and what could not be. After reviewing numerous articles and studies online, here comes what I've found. As you can see from the table below, here are listed only the most dangerous and the safest items. Everything in between is up to your own consideration :)
