EWG's Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce

How should you use this guide?
  1. For the Dirty Dozen fruits and vegetables - ALWAYS choose Organic, even if these items are the only Organic items you eat you can avoid 90% of your potential exposure to pesticides and herbicides.
  2. For the Clean 15 fruits and vegetables - choose organic if it is available to you and in your budget but if you don't get Organic, your pesticide exposure will be low.
What about other foods not on the list?
Check our EWG's Food Scores list to see the potential harm in each food item:
