Potatoes


Nearly 30 pesticides were found on 91 percent of conventional potatoes tested.

It offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer. Conventional sweet potatoes are another healthful starch option — landing on the EWG's "Clean 15" list of fruits and veggies with minimal pesticide use.
