THE DIRTY DOZEN FOODS THAT SHOULD BE BOUGHT ORGANIC

EWG has been publishing guides to the "dirty dozen" of most pesticide-contaminated foods since 1995, based on statistical analysis of testing conducted by the USDA and the FDA.The dirty dozen list only reflects measurable pesticide residues on the parts of the foods normally consumed (i.e. after being washed and peeled). We have listed these 12 foods in the following pages, along with recommendations for foods other than fruits and vegetables that are best bought organic.

COLON AND LIVER CLEANSING

Many people have problems with their liver, the gallstones (in the bile-ducts of the liver too, even when the gallbladder has been removed) and general digestion.

COOKWARE COATED WITH TEFLON

TEFLON IN A STICKY SITUATION

Children's Health Environment Coalition. DuPont's Teflon ® works wonders at keeping food from sticking to pots and pans. But after 50 years of use, evidence is mounting that Teflon's key ingredient, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), "sticks" in the environment indefinitely.

DuPont, Now in the Frying Pan

TEFLON has been hugely successful for DuPont, which over the last half-century has made the material almost ubiquitous, putting it not just on the frying pans but also on carpets, fast food packaging, clothing, eyeglasses and electrical wires – even the fabric roofs covering football stadiums.

Now DuPont has to worry that Teflon and the materials used to make it have perhaps become a bit too ubiquitous. Teflon constituents have found their way into rivers, soil, wild animals and humans, the company, government environmental officials and others say. Evidence suggests that some of the materials, known to cause cancer and other problems in animals, may be making people sick.

While it remains one of DuPont’s most valuable assets, Teflon has also become a potentially huge liability. The Environmental Protection Agency filed a complaint last month charging the company with withholding evidence of its own health and environmental concerns about an important chemical used to manufacture Teflon. That would be a violation of federal environmental law, compounded by the possibility that DuPont covered up the evidence for two decades.

DuPont contends that it met its legal reporting obligations, and said that it plans to file a formal response this week.

If an E.P.A. administrative judge does not agree, the agency could fine the company up to $25, 000 a day from the time DuPont learned of potential problems with the chemical two decades ago until Jan 30, 1997, when the agency’s fines were raised, and $27,500 a day since then. The total penalty could reach $300 million. The agency is also investigating whether the suspect chemical, a detergent like substance called perfluorooctanoic acid, is harmful to human health, and how it has become so pervasive in the environment. The chemical which is more commonly known as PFOA or C-8, for the number of carbon atoms in its molecular structure has turned up in the blood of more than 90 percent of Americans, according to samples taken from blood banks by the 3M Company beginning in the mid-90’s. Until it got out of the business in 2000, 3M was the biggest supplier of PFOA. DuPont promptly announced it would begin making the substance itself.

The E.P.A. is auditing 3M to determine if there were any civil violations of environmental law involving its chemically related products, Cynthia Bergman, a spokeswoman for the agency, said. The E.P.A.’s action on July 8 prompted the Chinese government to begin its own study on the safety of Teflon, and some stores there pulled Teflon-coated pans from their shelves, the government-run China Daily newspaper reported. SOME people who live in or near Parkersburg, W.Va., where DuPont has manufactured Teflon for 50 years, are not waiting for some studies. Thousands of them have joined in a class-action suit filed in Wood County, W.Va., Circuit Court against the chemical maker, which they charge knowingly contaminated the air, land and water around the plant for decades without informing the community. The chemical has been found in the public drinking water at levels exceeding a longtime internal guideline considered safe by DuPont. The trial is scheduled to begin next month. — By Amy Cortese —
