The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit watchdog, just came out with their 2010 "Dirty Dozen" list of the 12 fruits & veggies that contain the highest amount of pesticides. Drum-roll please...

These 12 fruits and vegetables contain the highest amount of pesticides. You'll probably want to buy organic when it comes to these foods:

1. Celery

2. Peaches

3. Strawberries

4. Apples

5. Blueberries

6. Nectarines

7. Bell Peppers

8. Spinach

9. Kale

10. Cherries

11. Potatoes

There are more than a few changes from the 2009 list, which you can check out here.
