Fruits and vegetables
Some pesticides are linked to IQ loss for exposures during pregnancy and early life. These are the best picks, but no matter what you choose, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables - benefits outweigh risks, hands down.
Fruits: Strawberries, apples, and nectarines top EWG's list of high pesticide fruits to buy organic. Better choices of non-organic fruit: cantaloupe, kiwi, and pineapples.
Veggies: Look for USDA's organic seal on sweet peppers, celery and spinach, which are otherwise high in pesticides. Good non-organic picks include corn, frozen peas and cauliflower.
Skip the garden pesticides. The residues end up in your food, body, soil, and local streams and rivers. Find varieties that thrive without the chemicals.
