Don't ever wash raspberries - Good Advice??

ExercisetoEat | Jun 21, 200710:00 AM     69

So I was watching food network at the gym over my lunch hour (somehow I always feel guilty having the elliptical screen on that channel, but I can't help myself!) and Ina Garten said something that I haven't heard before. She said "don't ever wash raspberries because they absorb water".

On some level I guess this makes sense, but I'm kind of a freak about getting rid of chemicals, dirt, or anything else that may have attached itself to fruits and veggies during commercial processing. Is this advice that should be followed? Or is it more important to wash off the fruit? I'd love to hear your opinions.
