Canned food gets a bad rap, especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables 

The EWG lists which fruits and vegetables are highest in pesticides to help your organic dollars go further.

Growing practices can affect produce, allowing the food to absorb pesticides and therefore leaving trace amounts in your meals. 

Buying organic, however, can limit your exposure to extra pesticides and insecticides 

Strawberries remain atop the list as the most pesticide-contaminated food. More than 90 % of the strawberries sampled tested positive 

Spinach has more pesticide residue by weight (remember spinach leaves weigh very little) compared to any other produce tested 

Over 92 percent of conventional kale samples tested positive for two or more pesticide residues 

Detectable pesticide residues were found on 90 percent of conventionally grown apples
