The Dirty Dozen: What's In Your Fruit?
The Dirty Dozen
By Julie Christensen
What's in your fruit and veggies? That's what the Environmental Working Group (EWG) figures out with its "Dirty Dozen" list of produce with the highest pesticide levels.
Apples, celery, sweet bell peppers, peaches, strawberries, imported nectarines, grapes and spinach top the list. Lettuce, cucumbers, domestic blueberries and potatoes round out the worst offenders, with green beans and leafy greens added as potential hazards.
