Kale is now one of the most pesticide-contaminated vegetables
Often touted for being highly nutritious, kale has joined the list of 11 other fruits and vegetables known to be "dirty," according to an analysis by the Environmental Working Group.

The watchdog group publishes its "Dirty Dozen" list annually, in which it ranks the 12 produce items that contain the highest amount of pesticide residues. The group analyzes data from the Department of Agriculture's regular produce testing to determine the list.

Ranked alongside kale on the list are strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery and potatoes...

I could never chew it, prefer swiss chard. However, when I do buy it, organic or home grown.

I read a couple years ago kale was absorbing heavy metals from the soil in large amounts. That's when i stopped kale in my salads.

Even though kale does have some amazing health benefits, there are many other leafy greens that are actually healthier than kale.

Collard Greens
Romaine Lettuce
Parsley
Leaf Lettuce
Chicory
Spinach
Beet greens
Chard
Chinese cabbage

Re: Kale is now one of the most pesticide-contaminated vegetables
They are my favorite greens, we can them whole leaf without the stems.
We grow them instead of buying them, I do not like chopped canned greens.
We have done this for a long time, way back to when my Grandmother was alive and my husband's grandmother was a live.
our grandparents parent did as well.

Cabbage, kale, salad peas, beets, flat pole beans and pink tips, peanut beans are good as well.
The most precious things are the simple things in life, always present in the simplest of minds.

Beet greens is my choice as well even though they say chard is better. It also tastes good if you cook it like spinach.

Everything is contaminated in our world.

Buy organically grown if you can’t grow yourself for least amount of toxins: chemicals.

Fuck you and your political correctnesx. When I was a kid, my grandmother used to stew kale all day with smoked ham hocks, Virginia style for Sunday supper after church. Veggies don't get better than than.

I grow kale every year and put it in so many dishes. I rarely buy vegetables at the grocery store and if I do, I buy organic.

This why i look for organic, esp re these crops. Yes, i know its an act of faith, and its more expensive, but we have try. I try to have a green drink consisting of 1/2 pound kale, or others, one apple, each morning, gives me good energy each day. Glad you posted, i was beginning to add celery, now ill be scrutinizing that one a bit closer.
