what can we do in such a situation? do you buy 100% organic food all the time?
I think it is very important on understand that "Organic" does not mean pesticide free (this is a myth). In fact, since the pesticides used in organic farming are typically less effective than regular pesticides, more (volume wise) are used and the foods could potentially have more pesticide on/in them than conventional products.
The bottom line is that organic foods are generally not any better health wise than their conventional counterparts.
The only solution is to avoid eating these foods as much as possible and/or to grow/eat your own totally pesticide free fruits and vegetables.
ALSO, all grains, ALL grains, are loaded with pesticides as they are used both during growing and AFTER they are harvested.
