How much pesticide is on/in
the food you eat?
There is a growing consensus in the scientific community that small doses of pesticides and other chemicals can adversely affect people, especially during vulnerable periods of fetal development and childhood when exposures can have long lasting effects. Because the toxic effects of pesticides are worrisome, not well understood, or in some cases completely unstudied, shoppers are wise to minimize exposure to pesticides whenever possible.
The following table is compiled based on test results from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They tested the most common fruits and vegetables to come up with a list of the "dirtiest" as well as the "least dirty". When buying fresh produce, you may want to consider trying to buy organic with those that have the highest ranking.
