The Clean Fifteen & Foods That Help Cleanse Your Body

artichokes

The clean fifteen are the foods that have the least amount of pesticides present on the produce. The dirty dozen are the most contaminated with highly toxic organophosphate insecticides that may damage the human nervous system. If you are on a tight budget, buy organic for the dirty dozen foods and conventional for the clean fifteen. Corn is on the clean fifteen but I would opt for organic corn due to the use of genetically modified seeds.

Below is the list of the clean fifteen courtesy of the Environmental Working Group, EWG.

EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce:

There are some foods that will help you detoxify and cleanse your body if you do eat a lot of conventional food, are exposed to environmental toxins, radiation, or heavy metals. Eat cilantro, garlic, lemons, sesame seeds, Himalayan Pink Salt ( the redder pink, the more minerals) , broccoli, apples, avocados, limes, and artichokes.
