10 Most Contaminated Fruits and Vegetables

4. Peaches


peachThere’s nothing quite like biting into a juicy summer peach, but that peach may be harboring dozens of pesticides. According to the new study, of all the produce tested, peaches were treated with more pesticides than any other fruit or vegetable: 57 different chemicals. Two or more pesticide residues were found on 85.6 percent of the peaches tested. You can peel peaches, but especially during the summer you should be able to find plenty of organic varieties and keep the fuzzy peel intact. Peaches are a good source of vitamins A, beta-carotene, and C and the mineral potassium, and they also contain a fair amount of iron and fluoride. Other important nutrients found in peaches include antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-cryptoxanthin, all of which can help fight free radicals and various disease processes.
