    In 1995, the Environmental Working Group identified foods in the conventional, non-organic food supply that contained the highest number of pesticide residues. The worst offenders, which were nicknamed the "dirty dozen," included:

    • Strawberries
    • Celery
    • Green and red bell peppers
    • Apples
    • Spinach
    • Apricots
    • U.S. grown cherries
    • Green beans
    • Peaches
    • Grapes from Chile
    • Mexican grown cantaloupe
    • Cucumbers
