============================

The 2011 Dirty Dozen

http://www.treehugger.com/files/2011/06/apples-beat-out-celery-as-most-contaminated-produce.php

Apples

  1. Celery

  2. Strawberries

  3. Peaches

  4. Spinach

  5. Nectarines (imported)

  6. Grapes (imported)

  7. Bell Peppers

  8. Potatoes

  9. Blueberries (domestic)

  10. Lettuce

  11. Kale/Collard Greens

Cilantro was tested for the first time this year with the samples contained 33 unapproved pesticides on 44 percent of the samples tested. This is the highest percentage of unapproved pesticide on any item included in the guide since EWG started tracking data in 1995. Since cilantro just missed inclusion in the "Dirty Dozen", coming in 13th in the rankings, you can imagine the contamination of the top twelve.

===============================

"Clean 15" includes onions, sweet corn, pineapples, avocado, asparagus, sweet peas, mangoes, eggplant, cantaloupe (domestic), kiwi, cabbage, watermelon, sweet potatoes, grapefruit and mushrooms.

Geodomes can be a solution to many problems.
Not only do they grow healthy food in the dead of winter but they can withstand 200mi/hour tornadoes.
Sorta makes you rethink about how we should build our homes.
Go 4 feet deeper into the ground and dome the top.

Have a great day!
