The Dirty Dozen – To Buy Organic or Not to Buy Organic?

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) complies a list called "Dirty Dozen and Clean 15" that shows the foods with the highest and lowest pesticide residue to help shoppers determine which foods to buy organic and which it’s okay to buy conventional.

Dirty Dozen List: Foods to Buy Organic
 
1. apples
2. celery
3. sweet bell peppers
4. peaches
5. strawberries
6. nectarines (imported)
7. grapes
8. spinach
9. lettuce
10. cucumbers
11. blueberries (domestic)
12. potatoes

This year the EWG also mentioned green beans and leafy greens (such as kale) as additional foods that contain enough pesticide residue to warrant concern. The organization also added a note saying that shoppers who are concerned about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) should buy organic sweet corn, as GMO sweet corn is not labeled as such in U.S. stores.
 
Clean 15 List: Foods Okay to Buy Non-Organic
 
1. onions
2. sweet corn
3. pineapples
4. avocado
5. cabbage
6. sweet peas
7. asparagus
8. mangoes
9. eggplant
10. kiwi
11. cantaloupe (domestic)
12. sweet potatoes
13. grapefruit
14. watermelon
15. mushrooms
