Organic Dirty Dozen List (And Clean 15)

Want to buy organic fruist and vegetables but not sure which ones to prioritise?  The EWG’s new ‘Dirty Dozen’ and ‘Clean 15’ list of the best and worst organic foods to buy should give you a good steer.

It’s our second guest blog on the bounce, but this one was definitely worth sharing…..

“The health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. Use EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides to reduce your exposures as much as possible, but eating conventionally-grown produce is far better than not eating fruits and vegetables at all.

The Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce will help you determine which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticide residues and are the most important to buy organic. You can lower your pesticide intake substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables and eating the least contaminated produce.”
