Produce & Pesticides

If you’re interested in knowing how your favorite fruits and vegetables rank in regards to pesticide residue, refer to the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) 2013 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™ or see the summary below.

EWG states the health benefits gained from a diet rich in conventional fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure but for those who would like to significantly cut down their level of pesticide exposure, buy organic versions of the produce listed on the Dirty Dozen Plus ™ list.
