The Dirty Dozen for 2010 has been released and varies from last year’s. In fact, Celery is now on the top of the list so I am happy I have buying this one as an organic for a while.
First up, a reminder of what the dirty dozen is all about: These are foods that are recommended to buy organic because even after washing, the pesticides remain. You may wish to either memorize or print list and take it with you to the store so that you are sure to spend a bit extra on these foods and spend less on the foods not on this list.

Remember, the most affordable option is to grow your own fruits and vegetables. There is also the added benefit of knowing exactly what is put onto your foods. Also, to find out why these items are on the list, refer to this article by Yahoo Green.
