Each year, EWG's Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce ranks pesticide contamination on 48 popular fruits and vegetables based on results of more than 35,000 samples tested by the USDA and FDA.
The foods with the least pesticide contamination are called the Clean 15, while the 12 with the most pesticides are called the Dirty Dozen.
The results are quite surprising to me! Happy to see the avocado on the clean list but as much as I scrub my potato, I was surprised I needed to choose organic there.
