"Making salsa or guacamole? Hold the cilantro, or better idea: Make sure yours is organic. Here's why: The U.S. Department of Agriculture randomly tested samples of cilantro in the U.S. and recently revealed shocking findings. In short, the tests showed that most cilantro is swimming with unapproved pesticides (34 different pesticides in total were detected on cilantro).
These pesticides may be dangerous to your health, say experts. Before new regulations can be put in place, consider paying a little extra and buying organic in this case. It's worth it."
