Environmental Working Group 2011 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides

This guide from the Environmental Working Group finds that "The health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure. [However, you should] reduce your exposures as much as possible, but eating conventionally-grown produce is far better than not eating fruits and vegetables at all.

The Shopper's Guide to Pesticide in Produce will help you determine which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticide residues and are the most important to buy organic. You can lower your pesticide intake substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables and eating the least contaminated produce."
