The 2012 Dirty Dozen: Produce You Should Only Buy Organic

By Cassie McCully

Since we've been talking produce and the four reasons you should shop local produce, it seems appropriate to pass along the list of produce that you should buy organic. 

The Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization, advocates for health-protective policies, while supplying consumers with useful resources, such as the annual EWG's Shopper's Guide to Pesticides.  This list informs consumers of what foods are testing at high levels of pesticides, even though they've made it into the supermarket.

The tests and results are not to sway consumers from eating their fruits and vegetables, as the EWG states, "the health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure."  Moreso, the information is used as a resource to educate consumers as a means to limit pesticide intake.
