Dirty Dozen – what are they?

EWG is a not for profit organisation.  This means it relies on those who use its research to fund more investigations. This stops the wool from being pulled over your eyes. It has a data base second to none on what you would need to know to keep the hidden toxins out of your environment. Don’t forget if it’s in the environment, it’s in you too!

Every year they publish an update on what is most toxic in the fruit and vegetable market. for this information alone it is worth following the organisation.

  • Do you know what’s in your tap water?
  • What about your shampoo?
  • What’s lurking in the cleaners underneath your sink?
  • What pesticides are on your food?
  • How about the farms, fracking wells and factories in your local area?
  • Do you know what safeguards they use to protect your water, soil, air and your children?
  • Which large agri-businesses get your tax money and why?  
  • What are GMOs?
  • What do they do to our land and water?
