The Dirty Dozen and the Green 15

appleThe humble apple heads up the 2012 “Dirty Dozen” list of foods which contain the most pesticide residue. The Environmental Working Group’s Shoppers Guide lists the 12 foods highest in pesticide residue and the green 15, those which hold the lowest pesticide residue. Keep in mind the EWG is US based, and farming methods differ from region to region even within countries, so all may not apply to the food we eat in Sydney.
