2010 Envirnomental Working Group Latest On “Dirty Dozen List”

Purchasing organically grown produce is the ideal first step in gaining control of ADD/ADHD, however I do understand that for some of us it can become too costly for our budget. So knowing how to discriminate between the least amount of chemcials for certain produce needs to become an important part of your eating habits. I have updated this year’s Environmental Working Group’s latest 2010 list of the “Dirty Dozen:

 While carrots, pears, and lettuce are no longer included on the list, unfortunately, spinach, blueberries, and potatoes have taken their place.

Dirty Dozen(Always and I mean always try to buy these produce organic)

Celery Peaches

Strawberries

Apples

 Blueberries

Nectarines

Bell Peppers

 Spinach

 Kale

Cherries

 Potatoes

 Grapes (Imported)

Equally helpful when shopping is to know which fruits and vegetables have the least amount of pesticide residues, so when organic varieties of the “Dirty Dozen” are unavailable, you can choose these as great alternatives: (To Clean chemicals off of these produces, soaking them in GSE Grapefruit seed extract- follow directions from GSE website)

Onions

Avocado

Sweet Corn

Pineapple

Mangos

Sweet Peas

Asparagus

Kiwi

Cabbage

Eggplant

Cantaloupe

Watermelon
