'Do you think you have the right to know how many pesticides and chemicals are in the fruits and vegetables you eat? So does the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit organization devoted to human and environmental health.
Each year EWG publishes a listing of the produce with the highest levels of pesticides, the ones that should be avoided unless they are available from known local growers, grown at home, or labeled as organic. They also identify which conventionally grown produce has low levels of pesticide and can be bought without worry. The new lists for 2014 have just come out, and there are plenty of surprises.
EWG is doing what the Environmental Protection Agency has failed to do'
