Every year the EWG publishes the foods which are safest to purchase conventionally grown, also known as the Clean 15. Meanwhile, they also complete additional food testing that identifies which foods are least safe to buy conventionally because they contain higher amounts of round up and other chemicals.
The Dirty Dozen are identified as foods high in pesticides and herbicides. When we eat foods high in these chemicals it puts our cells and nervous systems at risk. There has been links to Parkinson's disease and high levels of round up.
New to the Dirty Dozen list 2023 is Blueberries and Green Beans. Watermelon and carrots are new arrivals to the Clean 15.
When deciding between different food choices at the store, the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 list helps shops make safe cost effective decisions.
Here is the link to the EWG website which contains great information about not only food choices, but also how to choose safe cosmetics.
