It’s officially summer, which means it’s the best time to go to your local market and get some fruits and veggies. However, be careful: Not all produce is created equal. While a lot of non-organic produce is totally fine to consume, some of them carry a high amount of pesticides. Here are the top 5 types of produce with the highest amount of pesticides this summer, according to the Environmental Working Group, along with suggestions on what to get instead.
Note: Wash all fresh produce well to reduce your exposure to pesticide residue.
