“Eating fruits and vegetables, whether they’re conventional or organic, is always better than eating highly processed foods. And this advice would apply to conventionally grown apples, too.

“[EWG] has a long-standing portfolio of work around the issue of water pollution and efforts to pressure federal and state regulators to take the necessary actions and investments to ensure all Americans are drinking the safest water possible. We see this as a right everyone should rely on. Hopefully steps will be taken to fix the problem.”

“The program has produced invaluable research into the connections between toxic chemicals and asthma, ADHD, obesity, autism and cancer in children. The work of these children’s health centers has led to restrictions on the proximity of schools to major roadways in California, federal limits on arsenic levels in rice used to make baby food and New York City’s decision to phase out diesel buses.”
