Have you heard of the #DirtyDozen ?
The list, released annually by @environmentalworkinggroup alerts consumers about produce 🍎🍓🍇🥔 containing the highest levels of pesticides.
The following fruits and veggies currently top the list:
Strawberries, spinach, kale, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery, and potatoes.
It’s important to note that conventional produce does offer a variety of #nutritionalbenefits —But IF possible, choose organic, buy local, or grow your own!
And if you’re concerned about pesticides, opt for the #CleanFifteen , which have the lowest levels of contamination.
They include: avocados, sweet corn, pineapples, frozen sweet peas, onion, papaya, eggplant, asparagus, kiwi, cabbage, cauliflower, cantaloupe, broccoli, mushrooms, and honeydew melon.
Do you purchase organics?
