FRUITS & VEGETABLES WITH HIGHER PESTICIDE RESIDUE
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there are certain fruits and vegetables that have much higher levels of pesticide residue than others – even after washing.
Pesticides and other chemicals can cause damage to health especially during fetal development and early childhood. After analyzing over 100,000 U.S. government pesticide test results, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit organization research organization, came up with a dirty dozen list of the most contaminated fruits and vegetables. It is recommended to always buy these fruits and veggies organic.
