The top 3 pesticide-laden produce you want to know about

baby_eating_fruit_in_gardenThe Environmental Working Group just released their 2011 Shopper’s Guide for pesticides in produce. Here are the top three offenders:

#1 Apples. An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Not if 98% of conventional apples have pesticides. Sad but true.

#2 Celery. Don’t crunch this for lunch. Celery tested positive for 57 different pesticides.

#3 Strawberries. Some of these lovely, juicy red berries have as many as 13 pesticides.

To see their whole list and get their guide, go to Environmental Working Group. They are your friend.
