Guide to Pesticides in Your Food

So, I'm not judging the city of Seattle's decisions to remove a pesticides-rating guide after industry pressure. Ok, maybe I am just a little bit. But in case you wanted to know the worst pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables, the Environmental Working Group has put together
a great list of their own.

To avoid pesticides in your food, buy organic and local when possible. Local farmers tend to use organic or Integrated Pest Management practices. With fewer miles to travel and more suitable environments in which to grow, local foods need less chemicals, and in my opinion, taste better, too!
