pesticides are not so peachy

No organic onions at the supermarket? Don't cry -- it's okay to reach for the conventional ones (at least in terms of your health). Out of 44 fruits and vegetables tested, onions were found to have the least pesticide residue. But think twice before eating conventional (ie, not organic) peaches or apples. They ranked highest on the pesticide-residue list. Check out the full list here (there's also a downloadable guide, courtesy of Environmental Working Group).
