I am disheartened to see my favorite, cherries, in EWG's dirty dozen. But I found some goodies near the bottom of the list: avocado, onion, watermelon, asparagus.
One thing this compilation does not answer: does country of origin matter? Are domestic tomatoes cleaner than others, or not? Much of the year we can now buy produce grown in other countries, even other hemispheres. Does that alter the testing results?
Of course, most individual pieces of produce are never examined or tested by anyone for anything. Can some enterprising clean tech firm give us a handy little meter that will look at the bar code on the produce and then tell us the chances that a particular product has a high or low pesticide residue?
