Holistic Health Care and The “Clean 15″

Who doesn't love melons?

Holistic health care professionals often tell us to eat organic, buy organic, and do everything organically.   This is sound advice, however, organic produce is expensive!   That price can be worth it like with the “Dirty Dozen”.   (Some of you might remember our blog post on this subject.  For those that do not, you can find it here.)  When is it, however, not worth the price to buy organic?  Well when the produce belongs to the group known as the “Clean 15″.   These fruits and vegetables most have one trait in common, a thick skin.   Fruits like melon, citrus, and kiwi have skins that we normally cannot eat.   For the full list of safe non-organic produce please go here.

Holistic Health Care Presents the “Clean 15″

Environmental Working Group, a non-profit research organization, has released their annual “Dirty Dozen” and “Clean 15″ lists of fruits and veggies ranked by pesticide contamination.

The eight edition of the “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce” examines the pesticide loads of 45 common fruits and vegetables. According to the group’s press release:

For the full list please go here.

Eating under holistic health care guidelines does not always have to break the bank.   The produce found on the “Clean 15″ list can be purchased from non certified organic sources without causing any harm.

Avoid the skin to avoid the pesticides.
