Why?Because when tested, these foods routinely contained the highest levels of pesticides or chemicals on them (at least 30 different kinds - eeeh ghads!!)
- Bell Peppers
- Meat Products, Dairy Products & Egg Products (double whammy on these because of both pesticides AND hormones/steroids/antibiotics. Ick)
And ALL produce, organic or not, should be thoroughly cleaned with a non-toxic wash. This is the one I prefer, available at many local stores ( I get mine at Fred Meyer in the Organic section or Trader Joe's)
Envirrone Vegetable Wash..........Love it.
However, even a great washing can't remove the yuck from food, so it's best to go organic with them. If you've got the extra cash, these would be next - better safe than sorry:
