    Default "What's on my food?" Pesticides searchable database

    A really helpful site. Comprehensive details on pesticide use on produce...domestic vs. imported...conventional vs. organic... Try it out! I've made it sticky so you can find it easily later.

    "What’s On My Food? is a searchable database designed to make the public problem of pesticide exposure visible and more understandable."

    Islander, an absolutely brilliant site you have found here. A little disturbing in the few things I looked through was the amount of pesticide/chemical listed under 'Organic Imported'. Raises the question of definition of organic, whether something is grown organically but what goes onto it immediately before it is put on the shelf or sent for export.
