The Dirty Dozen, featuring Christina Aguilera Still Dirrty
Christina Aguilera''s Dirrty chorus pops in my mind when I visit the produce aisle. Always.

Cristina Aguilera - Still Dirrty

Sing it with me: "Still Dirrty" "I''ve still got the nasty in me, still got that freaky degree" "No matter what you thinkin of me (still dirrty)"

The Dirrty chorus reminds me of the Dirty Dozen Plus list. According to EWG these are nasty, dirty, dirrty pesticide traps and washing simply can not clean these up. They''re still dirty.

"The fruits and vegetables on “The Dirty Dozen” list, when conventionally grown, tested positive for at least 47 different chemicals, with some testing positive for as many as 67. For produce on the “dirty” list, you should definitely go organic" - Source PBS

"the list of dirty produce [was] compiled after the USDA washed the produce using high-power pressure water systems that many of us could only dream of having in our kitchens." -Source PBS
