You don’t want to eat fruits covered in toxins? Me neither! And any Environmental Working Group (EWG) doesn’t want to, fortunately, being very carefully at what is inside and on the surface of the products that we eat.
Recently was published a guide to pesticides shopper, which reveals the fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide content and those with the lowest. Their purpose is to maintain absolute transparency in terms of the suppliers of fresh produce to help consumers decide when and what products it is necessary to pay more for organic ones. Apples are in first place in the list of toxic fruits for the fourth year in a row, which is not surprising.
If your budget allows, EWG recommends organic products. And if you can afford now, their guide helps you make more informed and healthier choices. The point is, says EWG, to consume fruits and vegetables, even at the risk of exposure to pesticides. But now you know what to choose.
