EWG Dirty Dozen

EWG Dirty Dozen 2020


The Dirty Dozen is a list when is updated each year  by the EWG and ranks pesticide contamination on 48 popular fruits and vegetables. It is based on the results of more than 35,200 samples tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It’s a good idea to choose organic whenever possible if you are going to consume foods on the EWG Dirty Dozen list for the current year.


(EWG is The Environmental Working Group – a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment.)
