3. Bell Peppers
13. Soy products (e.g. tofu, milk, ice cream, yogurt, etc.)
14. Cow’s milk incl. cheese and ice cream (buy local or make sure it says RgBH free)
15. Chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, eggs, or pork (meat)
The list to the right was provided by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). EWG is a non-profit (501(c)(3)) that works on three main policy or issue areas: toxic chemicals and human health; farming and agricultural subsidies; and public lands and natural resources. Based on research, I’ve added soy, milk, egg, and meat products to this list.
I have never met any one from EWG; however, I trust my body and taste buds. When in season, an organic apple is a whole lot tastier than a non-organic one. Why would I eat synthetic chemicals if there is another, healthier option?
