Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG), update a list of the worst offenders of pesticide residue in food known as the “Dirty Dozen” and the “Clean 15″ which are the foods lowest in pesticide residue. The top of the lists stays much the same most years and it’s good to remember which is which as we eat day by day. This is especially true for anyone eating large amounts of fruits and vegetables on a raw vegan diet. You will find the 2021 list of foods with the most and least pesticide residue here.
One of the most common questions we hear asked is what is the difference between being a vegetarian and being a vegan. They have a lot of similarities, the first is that neither of them eats animal meat, but after that there are a lot of variables. There are several different ways to eat as a vegetarian, such as dairy or no dairy, and being vegan can be different as well. We did an article that will hopefully straighten it all out for you.

We Just posted a new article and video on The China Study book by T. Colin Campbell PhD. The book chronicles the dietary practices of thousands of people in China over a 20 year period. The study was conducted by the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, Cornell University, and the University of Oxford and Dr. Campbell was one of the project’s original directors. He wrote the book in 2005, and as of January 2012 it has sold over 500,000 copies, making it one of America’s best-selling books about nutrition.
