Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes it’s shopper’s guide to pesticides. This list helps the “should-I-spend-the-extra-money-to-buy-organic” decision making process easier. Below is a list of the highest pesticide produce, “the dirty dozen” (when you can, buy these organic) and the cleanest produce “the clean 15″ (OK to save your money and buy conventional). Thank you EWG for doing the research and organizing this list!
DIRTY DOZEN (buy these organic)
