The EWG’s Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen. If you’re not familiar with these continue reading and save it as a reminder when grocery shopping. The Environmental Working Group, also known as EWG, is a nonprofit organization that fights for consumers' rights to live healthier lives. They first gained notoriety when their very first environmental report (in 1993) helped pass the Food Quality Protection Act. This law made it so that there were guidelines and regulations on the foods specifically affecting infants and children. Their research later found carcinogenic pesticides in baby food and weedkiller in Midwestern tap water. The Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen has been updated every year since 2004. It ranks the pesticide contamination of 46 popular fruits and vegetables. The guide is based on test results by the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration of more than 46,000 samples of produce. The samples are tested for pesticides after they have been thoroughly washed and, when applicable, peeled. After these preparations, pesticide residues are still detected on many of the fruits and veggies.
