The NEW Dirty Dozen

Do you really need to purchase "organic"?

Apples are the most chemically-contaminated produce.

Purchasing organic can reduce your consumption of pesticides by 80%. 

The "Dirty Dozen" list of fruits and vegetables typically contain between 47 and 67 pesticides. Studies have linked pesticides to cancer, nervous system disorders, hyperactivity and weakened immune system. So which fruits and vegetables should you be purchasing organic?

Don't leave home without your "Dirty Dozen List" so print it, write it, or for the high tech folks take a picture and add this list to your Smart phone - ipone, blackberrry.
