Strawberries Top EWG’s Dirty Dozen

Love those sweet strawberries that are starting to hit the grocery stores? Please limit consumption to organic only–strawberries are among the “dirtiest” produce on EWG’s Dirty Dozen list. Non-organic versions contain carbendazim (a hormone disruptor), bifenthrin (a possible carcinogen), and up to 17 other pesticides. Better yet, find a spot in your home garden–they make a great ground cover on top of being a delicious treat. If you don’t have a yard, try a strawberry pot or three! (I added a link here, but haven’t used this brand–just be sure to avoid plastic versions) 🙂
