The dirty dozen and clean 15

by Marcia Mueller

Environmental Working Group  is my go to website for finding the most effective and least toxic sunscreens,  but it really is a treasure trove of information.  I just discovered that they have a list of the the 12 fruits and vegetables that typically have the highest levels of poisons and a list of the 15 that have the lowest levels  - the dirty dozen and clean 15.  While it is important to get at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables per day and even eating produce that has been sprayed is probably not as harmful as having a high fat or processed food at least you can be educated when you’re picking your produce. Check it out. They have an App you can download to your phone so you have it handy when you’re out shopping or you can print this one.  Happy shopping.
