70% of non-organic produce contains pesticide residue









The Environmental Working Group's 2021 Dirty Dozen List Is Here

Nearly 70% of non-organic produce sold in the United States contains pesticide residue, according to the EWG. Every year, the EWG ranks pesticide residue levels of fruits and vegetables based on samples taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration, publishing the results in the Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce.

Download the Live Well Work Well July Newsletter for a list of the most pesticide-tainted produce, which is known as the “Dirty Dozen.” In addition to the Dirty Dozen, the EWG publishes the “Clean Fifteen,” highlighting the “cleanest” produce.
