The Dirty Dozen

Buying organic produce is very important to me. For those of you who still aren't convinced, please consider at least buying the following fruits and vegetables as organic:
  • peaches

  • apples
  • sweet bell peppers

  • celery
  • nectarinees
  • strawberries

  • cherries

  • pears

  • grapes

  • spinach

  • lettuce

  • potatoes

These are considered the "Dirty Dozen", that is, they are the most highly contaminated of all produce. This list is published by The Environmental Working Group ( Eating the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables will expose a person to about 15 pesticides a day, on average.

So, please enjoy your fruist and veggies every day! But please consider buying ORGANIC.
