I Just Threw a Load of Veggies in the Wash

My buddy, Dr. Joe Mercola, posted a handy news bite on his site recently about the most toxic produce. The “Dirty Dozen” fruits and vegetables are responsible for about 90% of our pesticide exposure. Yum.

The following are the dirtiest – don’t avoid them, but scrub well with soap and water. Yes, soap – because food is now laundry.

– Peaches

– Apples (we’re really offended by this)

– Sweet bell peppers

– Celery

– Strawberries

– Spinach

The Doc tells us these are some of the cleaner veggies and fruits available:

– Onions

– Avocados

– Pineapple

– Asparagus

– Broccoli

Here’s the clickativity.
