  • Strawberries are #1 on the Environmental Working Group's 2016 Dirty Dozen list. This means that when samples of fruits and vegetables were tested for pesticide residues, strawberries were the highest. To enjoy strawberries this summer without worrying about synthetic pesticides, buy organic or go to a farmer's market where you can ask the farmers about pesticides used on their berries.
  • Maple syrup has recently been highlighted for its potential to prevent Alzheimer's disease.

We need studies in people before we know whether maple syrup can protect our brains.
