Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen
Do you know the dirty dozen and clean fifteen??
Whether you are on a budget and need to prioritize your organic purchases or you would simply like to know what type of produce has the highest pesticide residues, this list can come in handy! The dirty foods you should always buy organic. The clean foods don't always have to be organic. The term organic simply means foods that have not been exposed... to pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, hormones, fertilizers and other harmful chemicals during their growing stages. More organic food in the diet means fewer toxins in our soil, air and water and less toxic material entering the body, therefore less work your body has to do to get rid of it and less damage to your body. Choose Certified Organic when possible. If organic is not possible wash your food thoroughly.
