    this is part of a two part CNN special on pesticides and produce. This installment includes a list of the "Dirty Dozen"-a group of 12 fruits and vegetables that have up to 60+pesticides on them. According to the Environmental Working Group, you can reduce your pesticide exposure by 80% if you choose to eat the organic version of the "dirty dozen."
