Celery Stays on "Dirty Dozen" List for 2013

As you know, we make it very clear all the ways that celery is bad -- even dangerous.  One of these ways is our yearly monitoring of EWG's "Dirty Dozen" report.

The 2013 report was just released and, again (no surprise), celery is on the list at #2.

Don't take our word for it, you can read about it directly from the Environmental Working Group's summary. Scroll down to find the "Dirty Dozen" and also their other feature the "Clean Fifteen."

We would also like to remind you we have been pointing this out as a potential problem as early as January of 2009 and again in July of the same year.  You can read those articles below:

Can Organic Celery Cause Cancer?
Beware of New Zealand Celery

Don't think you can get around it by eating organic.  The only way to stay truly safe is to not eat it at all.  JUST SAY NO.

Stay safe out there, people.

Will Forte Sold His Soul to the Devil

Will Forte, famous for his antics on Saturday Night Live, sold his soul to the devil for his success.  But don't take my word for it.  It's clearly stated in a recent expose by Jake Coyle, entertainment writer for Associated Press.

In an article at Huffington Post, Forte admits that his mother was horrified by it. As she should be.  I'm sure because she raised him better than that.  If you're going to debase yourself and humiliate your mother you might as well go with something respectable like a carrot or a nice, firm zucchini squash.

If you're not utterly convinced that Will Forte will do anything for money you can see the evidence yourself here:   Celery Scene from MacGruber

Adding insult to injury, Forte goes on to actually eat the celery.
