Foods With Most Pesticides

In 2006, the Environmental Working Group released an updated report that identified foods in the conventional, non-organic food supply that contained the highest number of pesticide residues.

The following 12 produce items have the highest pesticide residue.

  1. Strawberries
  2. Bell peppers (green and red)
  3. Spinach (tied with number 2)
  4. Cherries (grown in the United States)
  5. Peaches (grown in Chile)
  6. Cantaloupe (grown in Mexico)
  7. Celery
  8. Apples
  9. Apricots
  10. Green beans
  11. Grapes
  12. Cucumbers
Here's the list of worst and best so you can choose wisely on what you want to buy organic.
