An apple a day can keep the doctor away, maybe? It turns out that apples are the highest in pesticides. They just made the top of the “12 most contaminated” list. (USA Today) Apples contain nutrients, fiber, and great stuff for health of your whole body, but it is important to buy organic or wash them with vegiwash or water mixed with a little dish detergent and rinse.

I just bought a bag of apples for work so that I could make sure I got some fruit and fiber at lunch time and for snacking. I have been buying all organic apples.

Here is the 12 MOST CONTAMINATED list.

1. Apples

2. Celery

3. Strawberries

4. Peaches

5. Spinach

6. Nectarines

7. Grapes

8. Sweet Bell Peppers

9. Potatoes

10. Blueberries

11. Lettuce

12. Kale/Collard Greens

Of course, fear will interfere with health too, so do the best you can and enjoy your food.

Have a healthy day and stay happy!
