A is for apple―and a lot of pesticides. According to the Food and Drug Administration, more pesticides (a whopping 36) are found on apples than on any other fruit or vegetable. In one test, as many as seven chemicals were detected on a single apple.
No organic? Peel your apples. And look for apples from New Zealand (it's noted on the little produce stickers), which are treated with
half as many pesticides as those grown Stateside.
