Fruit With Highest Pesticide Levels

The Environmental Working Group regularly publishes lists of the most toxic and least toxic fruits and vegetables that are offered for consumption according to how much pesticide residue they contain.


Well, it's good that California doesn't have many Nuclear Power Plants because we've got agriculture and all the pesticides which are used to keep the bugs and fungii off. Good place to get a Pluto/Neptune fix on a regular basis I guess. Kind of interesting to consider who it is we trust to apply this stuff but I won't go into that. Here's the list from Worst to 15th least worst.

1. Apples
2. Celery
3. Strawberries
4. Peaches
5. Spinach
6. Nectarines (imported)
7. Grapes (imported)
8. Sweet Bell Peppers
9. Potatoes, well at least that's Idaho.
10. Blueberries (domestic)
11. Lettuce
12. Kale (collard Greens)


The fruits/vegetables with the least amount of pesticides are listed in the article as well. Keyword for health here is "Thick Skin." Pluto is in Capricorn, after all.

Got a little curious to see what kinds of nutrition we'll miss out on if we avoid these fruits. I guess one could always just buy organic but I truly don't know if they are real honest about that stuff. Used to live around Apple field which were supposedly organic and helicopters came in twice a year and dumbed unbelievable amounts of poison all over the place.

Apples are best for fighting asthma and diabetes. The vitamins are kept right under the skin, right on the other side of where the pesticides are. I got that little bit of info from an interesting article at:


Looks like the fruits that are good for fighting inflammation are no longer very good for that purpose if they're full of pesticides. Strawberries? Forget about it.

Fruits that are good for Pluto in Capricorn Issues perhaps:

Kiwis, Blackberrys, Cherries, Pineapple, Papaya, Watermelon, Tomatoes, and Prunes. These are said to help with skin, bone, old age, and prostate. This is just me having fun. Read the article and make your own opinion.
