Important numbers (8, 4, 9)
We live in a toxic environment so you must be mindful about what you put in and on your body. Food manufacturers put a bar code on fruits and vegetables that can help you make good choices.
When you’re shopping for fresh produce, check the first number in that code. Here’s what it means:
8 Food items that are genetically altered or engineered. I do not recommend consuming these products.
Example: Genetically Altered: 843214
Example: Organic: 956734
4 Conventional or standard and more than likely to have been treated chemically with an herbicide, pesticide or both.
Example: Conventional: 434522
