Dirty Dozen!!!! Clean 15!!!

As the excerpt from an article read below says some coventionally grown fruits and veggies can contain over 47 chemicals!!! Now imagine feeding that to your family? How about putting it in a baby jar and scooping into Juniors mouth? No thanks! Find locally grown organic produce whenever possible. More here ----> http://www.occupymonsanto360.org/2012/02/24/the-dirty-dozen-and-clean-15-of-produce/    "The fruits and vegetables on “The Dirty Dozen” list, when conventionally grown, tested positive for at least 47 different chemicals, with some testing positive for as many as 67. For produce on the “dirty” list, you should definitely go organic — unless you relish the idea of consuming a chemical cocktail. “The Dirty Dozen” list includes:

  • celery
  • peaches
  • strawberries
  • apples
  • domestic blueberries
  • nectarines
  • sweet bell peppers
  • spinach, kale and collard greens
  • cherries
  • potatoes
  • imported grapes

All the produce on “The Clean 15” bore little to no traces of pesticides, and is safe to consume in non-organic form. This list includes:
  • onions
  • avocados
  • sweet corn
  • pineapples
  • mango
