CONYNGHAM -- You might want to think twice about the type of produce you buy next time you're at the store.
According to Consumer Reports magazine, shoppers should be buying organic fruits and vegetables.
The report claims buying organic lowers your exposure to pesticides, and that's healthier.
We stopped at the ShurSave in Conyngham where some shoppers aren't convinced.
"I'm sure if they take away what they're considering pesticides, they'll find something else wrong with it in the end. I mean, I buy organic occasionally, but it just depends on what looks better when I'm here," Tom Widitz of Sugarloaf said.

Experts for Consumer Reports say long-term exposure to pesticides can increase the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. They say spending the extra cash could benefit your health.
Most shoppers Newswatch 16 talked to say they choose their produce based on the price.
However, there were a few that like it just for the flavor.
"I like the celery hearts and the carrots, huge difference in their flavor. Also, they're pesticide free. They're a little more healthier to eat," Thomas Lutsky of Hazle Township said.
Rodney Heckert says organic or not, the cost of some veggies are just too expensive.
"There's people that want to be on organic because they think it's healthier for them. In some cases it is, but over the long haul it isn't because you're paying more for it. So you're losing," Heckert said.
Even though Consumer Reports recommends organic produce, experts say if you can't buy organic, it's still important to get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
