How often do we find ourselves in the produce section of our supermarket confused and overwhelmed by the ever-haunting question “Is
this organic nectarine really worth it”? If you’re anything like most health-conscious folks, this is a usual occurrence. Luckily, EWG has
created a guide to identify the fruits and vegetables with the highest and lowest pesticide residue. If you’re concerned about what you
and your family are putting in your bodies, consider buying apples, strawberries, grapes, celery and peaches from the organic section of
your supermarket. These 5 products ranked the highest in pesticide residue, some of them containing as many as 15 different varieties
of the nasty bug-killing chemicals. However, not all products are worth the extra cash; avocados, sweet corn, pineapples, cabbage and
sweet peas have little to no traces of chemicals so they’re mostly safe to eat, no matter where they come from; EWG.org.
