Worried about the intake of pesticides and other chemicals but can’t afford to go all Organic? The Environmental Working Group has released the Dirty Dozen list to make it easier for us to decipher which produce is the most contaminated. According to EWG calculations, you can lower your pesticide consumption by nearly four-fifths simply by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables or purchasing these Organic.

The Dirty Dozen

peaches
strawberries
apples
domestic blueberries
nectarines
cherries
imported grapes
Celery
sweet bell peppers
spinach
kale
collard greens
potatoes

The Clean Fifteen (These fruits and vegetables are least likely to test positive for pesticide residue)

onions
sweet corn
sweet peas
asparagus
cabbage
eggplant
sweet potatoes
avocados
pineapples
mangoes
kiwi
domestic cantaloupe
watermelon
grapefruit
honeydew
