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

9            Organic.

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
