The “Dirty” Dozen versus “Clean” 15 Guidelines for 2020

“Clean” 15 List

These are 15 of the “cleanest” fruits and vegetables that the EWG recommends for 2020.  Clean fruits and vegetables are determined by the amount of pesticides and chemicals that are used on the produce during the growing season.  This group of produce can be bought organically or conventionally. 

“Dirty” Dozen

Like the “Clean” 15, the “Dirty” dozen is determined by the amount of pesticides and chemicals used on the produce during the growing season.  If possible, buy these fruits and vegetables grown organically to reduce the risk of pesticide exposure.

Note:  Do not let these guidelines determine the amount of fruit and vegetables that you are consuming.  It is better to get as many fruits and vegetables in ones’ daily diet; however, if you are buying items off of the “Dirty” Dozen list that are not organically grown, just thoroughly clean the produce before consumption.
