Q: Are 100% fruit juices such as orange and cranberry clean?

If your budget limits you, make meat, eggs, dairy and the Dirty Dozen (ewg.org/foodnews) your organic priorities.Drink at least two liters of water a day, preferably from a reusable canteen, not plastic; we’re friends of the environment here! Limit your alcohol intake to one glass of antioxidantrich red wine a day.Get label savvy. Clean foods contain short ingredient lists.
