Throughout recent years, there has been a movement related to the food we eat. With the more information available that we as consumers have, we continue to grow in our understanding and education that helps us to make healthy food decisions.
Each year, the EWG investigates which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticides on them so as consumers, we can make the best decisions about foods we eat. The EWG’s goal is to make your food as transparent as possible. They created a Shoppers Guide to help consumers. Buying organic food is expensive, so knowing which foods are the most contaminated with pesticides might help you as you decide which organic foods to buy.
The EWG Shopper’s Guide has been published for 2015. The EWG Shopper’s Guide informs consumers all across America which fruits and vegetables have the highest levels of pesticides.
The EWG is the Environment Working Group. Every year they produce a shoppers’ guide. This guide is based on laboratory tests conducted by the USDA Pesticide Testing Program and the Food and Drug Administration.
