EWG Posted a New Dirty Dozen

The non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) the same good folks that bring us the skin deep website have released a new Shopper's Guide to Pesticides. I'm lucky enough to be able to purchase almost all organic produce, but if you can't, for whatever reason, the EWG's list can really help you make the best choices, to purchase the least amount of pesticides.

EWG analysts have developed the Guide based on data from nearly 87,000 tests for pesticide residues in produce conducted between 2000 and 2007 and collected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. You can find a detailed description of the criteria EWG used to develop these rankings and
the complete list of fruits and vegetables tested at their dedicated website, www.foodnews.org.
