Executive Summary: Eat your fruits and vegetables!

Home EWG's 2012 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce ™ Eat your fruits and vegetables! The health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. Use EWG's Shopper's Guide to Pesticides ™ to reduce your exposures as much as possible, but eating conventionally-grown produce is far better than not eating fruits and vegetables at all. The Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce ™ will help you determine which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticide residues and are the most important to buy organic.
