EWG’s 2014 Shopping Guide

EWG has released their 2014 Produce Guide, have you taken a look? Apple still comes in as the #1 most contaminated of all, again, several years running. I will never eat nor feed a non-organic apple to my family. And it’s sad as I live in an area known for it’s apple orchards. They’re all conventional except one organic one, owned & cared for by some of the most amazing folks I know, my friends at Turkey Ridge Orchard, here in SW Wisco…

“EWG analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items. All 48 foods are listed below from worst to best
(lower numbers = more pesticides)

Note: EWG analyzed pesticide tests of 48 popular produce items. Domestic and imported versions of three items – nectarines, blueberries and snap peas- showed sharply different results, so we have ranked those domestic and imported items separately. As a result, the full list of foods ranked by the Shopper’s Guide displays 51 entries.”
