The EWG, the Environmental Working Group is an American organization that annually publish a list of the most pesticide ridden fruits and vegetables and the least pesticide contaminated ones.
Every year they analyse 48 most common fruits and vegetables and based on the United States government’s Pesticide Data Program report, a pesticide residue monitoring system enacted back in 1991.
Known as “The Clean Fifteen” and “The Dirty Dozen” these two lists can be really helpful when deciding what to buy organic or conventionally grown.
