Not everyone is able to afford organic foods. Let’s face it, they can be fairly expensive. But there are some organic foods that might be worth the price. The Environmental Working Group’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides identifies several fruits and vegetables that have the highest and lowest pesticide residues. Twelve foods made the ‘Dirty Dozen’ list (including apples, strawberries, nectarines, lettuce, capsicums and potatoes), while another 15 make up the ‘Clean 15’ list. If you’re worried about pesticides in your food, check out the full list here.
