Eating organic may help to reduce dietary exposure to pesticides and minimise risks to our health
Pesticides exposure may be associated with hormonal disruption and adverse effects on neurodevelopment and behaviour in children.
Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes the Dirty Dozen List.
If you want to minimise pesticides in your food, buy organic versions from the Dirty Dozen list.
The Clean Fifteen are the least contaminated fruits and vegetables. When organic options are not available or too expensive, it is ok to purchase conventional ones from this list.
