New List of 15 Foods That Don't Need To Be Organic
Published: 8/20/2013

The Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Shopper's Guide to Pesticides lists fruits and vegetables that are the most and least likely to contain pesticide residue. It is designed to help you know when to choose organically grown produce, and when conventionally grown produce is an acceptable alternative. 

Below is the latest EWG's "Clean 15" - produce that, when grown conventionally, poses the least risk of exposure to pesticides. While I always recommend eating organic fruits and vegetables, they may be too expensive for those on tight budgets or simply not available. However, according to the EWG, eating five servings a day from this "Clean 15" list reduces your exposure to pesticides by almost 90 percent compared to five servings daily from the "Dirty Dozen."

I encourage everyone to enjoy these fruits and vegetables in organic or conventionally grown form:

  • Onions
  • Sweet corn
  • Pineapples
  • Avocado
  • Cabbage
  • Sweet peas
  • Asparagus
  • Mangoes
  • Eggplant
  • Kiwi
  • Cantaloupe (domestic)
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Grapefruit
  • Papayas
  • Mushrooms

Don't miss tomorrow's tip, with the foods that should only be eaten in organically grown form.
