Food for Thought: The Dirty Dozen

Not everyone can afford to go "all organic" every time they go to the grocery store.

With nightly patio visits and weekend getaways slashing into your bank account, we wanted to help you prioritize which foods are more important to buy organically and which ones you can skimp on if need be.

This list, often referred to as the "dirty dozen" states the 12 foods possessing the highest and lowest concentrations of pesticides, additives, and hormones.

After re-googling a few times I found there are a few different opinions about foods that need to be on there. However, it seems that no matter which list you read, they start by referring to this one.

The Environmental Working Group not only offers a PDF download, they also offer an Iphone app option.

Ahhhhhh technology... you are glorious.
