Sup Deidler, wanted to forward this to you in case you didn't see it in the thread: http://westernfarmpress.com/manageme...ts-and-veggies Should you be worried about pesticide residues on specific fruits and vegetables? The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a U.S.-based environmental advocacy group, believes you should be, and has released the latest version of its annual â€œDirty Dozenâ€ list, representing the 12 fruit and vegetable commodities alleged to contain the greatest relative levels of pesticides. Are such rankings validated by a careful examination of scientific evidence? Absolutely not. Should you continue to try to eat more fruits and vegetables? Absolutely!
