Potatoes and Pears Added to Dirty Dozen

Yes, this is true. I try to check out EWG.org a couple times per year to make sure I’m up-to-date on my dirty dozen and clean 15. Well, the big news is that Potatos and Pears have been added to the dirty dozen list. Bummer.

And the scary thing to me as a mom, “many baby food purees, including more than 1/3 of pear baby foods, still have too many pesticide residues to be sold in Europe.” I cannot figure out why our lawmakers help cover up information like this with the tricky labeling we have on our foods. But that’s a discussion for another day.

EWG also has done extensive analysis on TONS of cleaning products to determine their toxicity.  Just because is says “green” doesn’t mean it is.  You can search for cleaning products here.
