Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Food — Wellness Wire

Have you wondered which foods have the most pesticides and which don’t? Would you like a guide to highlight the foods would be best for your health to buy organically, and which you could save money on and buy from industrial growers because they are less contaminated? The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a not-for-profit organization, now offer an easily downloadable Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in your food. The guide offers a chart that lists the “Dirty Dozen” foods that have the highest amount of pesticide residue, and the “Clean 15,” with the lowest in pesticide residue.  The chart can be cut out and slipped into a purse or wallet. The downloadable PDF also offers education about how much washing will help to remove pesticides, and how the guide was developed using data from 87,000 tests.  The guide is offered through EWG’s Food News project.
