This weeks Top Ten Tuesday List is actually a Top Twelve list. Organic food obviously costs more, so it’s not always an ideal option for every family to buy everything they consume in the organic section. Here’s a list of the 12 fruits and vegetables that contain the most pesticides. If you’re not ready to make the plunge into a completely organic diet, here’s the list of the most important produce to start with. Kale was on the list in years past, but traded places this year with cucumbers. That doesn’t mean that it is out of the woods so to speak as far as pesticides go. Green beans just squeaked by and didn’t make the list this year, but they are another one to watch out for, since they too are grown with a concerning number of pesticides. These numbers are recorded AFTER washing. If you aren’t washing your produce, then you are ingesting way more! Looking for produce that doesn’t have as many pesticides? Check out the list of the Clean 15!
