Go organic

Stone fruits with thin skins and thin-leafed vegetables are always at the top of the charts when it comes to pesticide residue. The US Environmental Working Group has released its Dirty Dozen list for 2018. If you love these fruit and veg, buy organic or wash them thoroughly before eating, especially if you have them raw. The main offenders are:

  • Strawberries
  • Spinach
  • Nectarines
  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Peaches
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Capsicums
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery
  • Potatoes
