Prioritizing Pesticide-Free Produce

Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides

Each year, the Environmental Working Group reviews pesticide use data and compile two lists for their  Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides. The 2011 list was released on June 13th.  The first is known as the “Dirty Dozen” and features items highest in residues that you should buy organic if possible (apples, celery, strawberries). Those that land on the “Clean 15″ turn out to have very low pesticide residues (onions, sweet corn, avocado) and are not as important to go organic. Click here for the complete list.
