An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Last week we covered the Dirty Dozen–the most chemically contaminated produce. Buying the organic version of the produce on the Dirty Dozen is an important step in cancer prevention.
This week’s blog reveals the Clean 15! So you’ll know where to spend your organic dollars.
The Clean 15 List, which periodically changes, includes the produce with the least chemical and pesticide exposure–so theoretically you would not need to buy organic (though, if you can afford it, do it! For your health, your community, and to support those farmers who are growing responsibly). Here goes:
2. SWEET CORN
5. SWEET PEAS (Frozen)
13. CANTALOUPE (domestic)
15. SWEET POTATOES
