An apple a day keeps the doctor away- or will kill you with it’s contaminated pesticides in a slow and painfull death.

That’s the news from EWG which stands for environmental working group.  Ok it’s not an exact quote, but that’s how I interpret it.  It’s fitting too, that this report comes out after I’ve been eating an apple a day for the last 2 weeks.  I thought I was doing a healthy thing, now I’m full of pesticides.  Whats the other 11 most contaminated produce?  Find out after the jump.

Most contaminated produce in order:

1. Apples

2. Celery

3. Strawberries

4.  Peaches

5. Spinach

6. Imported Nectarines

7. Imported Grapes

8. Sweet Bell Peppers

9. Potatoes

10. Blueberries

11.  Lettuce

12.  Kale/Collard Greens

Onions are the safest produce to eat.  Probably because no bug really wants to chow down on an onion.  Check out the list of safe produce from EWG.
