Did you know that women who ate more than two servings of high-pesticide fruits and vegetables each day were 18% less likely to become pregnant, and 26% less likely to have a live birth than women with less exposure to pesticides according to a study published in 2018.
Since fruits and veggies are an important part of a diet that optimizes fertility, here’s a list of the 15 lowest in pesticides (The Environmental Working Group’s 2020 Clean 15 list):
- Sweet Corn*
- Sweet peas, frozen
- Honeydew melon
