Environmental Working Group

If you’re like me you love fresh fruits, so good and guaranteed to your help you stay healthy and energized, but some fruits are riddled with pesticides, sprayed more heavily than others, which is why I look to the Environmental Working Group as a legitimate health source  to expose potential health threats, inform the public and generally keep us abreast of what to be aware of when it comes to the foods we’re eating. They have a team of scientists, engineers, lawyers, etc. who pour over scientific studies, and also conduct their own lab studies to expose potential health threats, inform the public, and look for solutions.

One of their great services is providing the “dirty dozen” which runs down some of the fruits and vegetables that contain the highest levels of pesticides. Here they are: Peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, kale, lettuce, grapes, carrots and pears. Something to be aware of next time you’re at the grocery store.
