The Environmental Working Group is an non-profit organization that researches and reports about the toxicity of our food, water, cosmetics, cleaning products etc..
To protect the most vulnerable segments of the human population children, babies, and infants in the womb from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic contaminants.
To replace federal policies, including government subsidies that damage the environment and natural resources, with policies that invest in conservation and sustainable development.*
I highly recommend you take a look at their DIRTY DOZEN list of the most pesticide laden foods. Even if you don’t want to buy everything organic at least buying organic the fruits and vegetables that are listed as the most heavily sprayed, will save you and your family from ingesting the most highly toxic food items.
