    I got the list from a person in a local vegetarian group in florida but you’ll also find similiar lists online if you use google. After you posted your comment, I just found the same list at: http://willowspringsmarketgarden.com/contaminated.aspx

    Just remember to try to buy organic, pesticide free produce so you get the nutrients instead of the pesticides. Thanks for visiting my blog!
