Dirty Dozen

Dirty Dozen

Every year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) releases its “Dirty Dozen” list of produce most contaminated by pesticides, which can increase your risk of cancer and disrupt normal functioning nervous and endocrine system. Even when washed and sometimes even peeled, these fruits and vegetables can still contain pesticides.

These “Dirty Dozen” fruits and vegetables contain the most pesticides over all other produce! Avoid the most harmful pesticides—buy organic!
