Dr. Oz: Highest and Lowest Risk Fruit and Vegetables for Pesticides

Dr. Oz talked to Dr. Urvashi Rangan from Consumer Reports about their research into how many pesticides are in our food. Every year, the government puts out data about the pesticide residue they find on fruits and vegetables. Consumer Reports took a closer look at the data to find out more info and overlayed some government toxicity data. This provided a risk index of different produce and how certain people might be at more risk than others, such as children.

    Some of the info above contradicts EWG list of Dirty Dozen and Clean 15. According to EWG non-organic grapes are high in pesticides and non-organic sweet potatoes are low in pesticides.
