The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit agency that funds research in environmental health.  Every year it posts a list of 12 vegetables and fruit that have a very high pesticide load.  This list can help health-conscious consumers choose food items carefully to protect their health.  Avoiding these top 12 (or buy them organically) can significantly ease your pesticide burden.   Here they are:

  1. peaches
  2. apples
  3. sweet bell peppers
  4. celery
  5. nectarine
  6. strawberries
  7. cherries
  8. kale
  9. lettuce
  10. grapes (imported)
  11. carrots
  12. pears
