When it comes to vegetables, what is the “Dirty Dozen”?
Strawberries and spinach top the list, so it's best to buy them organically produced.

    how much of the insecticide will be removed by thorough washing?

      A lot of that depends on the skin/peel of the particular fruit or vegetable. Things like avocados and bananas won't absorb nearly as much as, say, strawberries or raspberries (which absorb it easily, so you're really just washing off surface contaminants at that point.) Try a Google search to see what information you may come up with. I hope this helped a little. :-)
