The deceptive “Dirty Dozen” pesticide list put out annually by the Environmental Working Group continues to be the list no one needs or asked for.
Consumer Reports has created a produce ranking — under the ominous heading “Stop Eating Pesticides” — based allegedly on pesticide residues.
The EWG’s “Dirty Dozen” report negatively affects our shopping decisions with baseless and misleading information that preys on public fears.
It’s time for the EWG to reflect on the harm they are causing by their misguided Dirty Dozen list. Yet, fear sells, and they’re making a lot of money off of it.
The Environmental Working Group is not an expert in science — they are experts in marketing that use fear to influence consumer decisions.
A new USDA and FDA report shows both organic and conventional food is safe and the “Dirty Dozen” list is doing more harm than good.
