Do you know what are The Dirty Dozen? A big part of the produce sold and consumed in the world comes with pesticide residues. The Environmental Working Group tests, every year, what are the food products that have the highest concentration of such residues and releases a list with the worst hit products.
If you have to choose which fruits and vegetables to buy organic, the dirty dozen is a good bet. This way, you will be reducing the risk of ingesting high amounts of pesticide residues.
For 2019, EWG’s dirty dozen products are: 🍓🍇🍑🍎🍒🍐🍅🥔
Keep this list in mind when grocery shopping. The EWG analyzed produce in the United States, but unfortunately the trend is global.
But for a bit of good news, there is also a list called The Clean Fifteen, which you can safely buy without worring too much about pesticide residues! 🥑🌽🍍🍆🥝🍈🥦🍄
