I work in integrative medicine (combining eastern and western medicine) so I've had a lot of exposure to 'natural health' and while Andrew Weil is a bit of a sell-out, he wrote a decent book that is easy to read on healthy lifestyles that includes info on eating organic. It is called Natural Health, Natural Medicine.
I don't know if you have a Trader Joe's in your area but they are super cheap and have mostly organic food and healthier food in general-- they are great. Places like Whole Foods and New Seasons are pretty expensive but if people keep demanding it, it will get more competitive.
If you want to get scared in to becoming vegetarian, read The China Study or Skinny B*tch. I haven't classified myself as one but I pretty much can't eat meat anymore. I don't miss it though.
I'm really sorry about your lymphoma.

We also have a garden with yummy tomatoes, squash, peppers, etc. If we can stop the deer from eating most of it! We also have a Farmer's Market every saturday so you can get great veggies and fruit. And alot of chicken farmers and cow farmers where you can get eggs and REAL milk! I try to stay away from Trader Joe like places. They ship all their produce from other countries and wrap it in tons of plastic which IMO goes hand in hand with eating organic and then having your food wrapped in plastic. UGH!

We are really particular about our animal proteins - shellfish, chicken, turkey, meat, etc AND our fruit and veggies, we ONLY buy those from Whole Foods or organic.
We are lucky b/c there are a lot of local farmers markets and we live in a big city.
Organic / Locals foods is very important and i completely agree regarding the benefit you will see from removing all of those obvious toxins from your system!

It may be too late for me to fall in love with health food but I would like my baby to be healty, of course. My 11 year old daughter eats much better than me so I may be able to turn her. We live near 2 local farmer's markets and have lots of stores nearby that I'm sure I could find stuff.
Anybody watch Jon and Kate Plus 8? Even though she has to juggle 8 children, she cooks all of their meals and uses all organic ingredients. They visited an organic farm and bought a side of organic beef. It was pretty interesting.
