Fruit Labels - genetically modified (GMO)

Fruit Labels

Read the Numbers on Your Fruit

I just found this out about a month ago and I've been an organic vegan for over four years, go figure.
That just goes to say that we must all remain as students and continue to learn and learn and never stop studying and gaining new information.

Okay, so what did I learn ?
I learned that sticker labels on the fruits actually tell you how the fruits have been grown and whether they were organically grown or conventionally grown with pesticides and herbicides; oh, and let's not forget about the genetically engineered fruits.

Conventional Fruit Labels
Four digits and does not start with 9 ** mostly starting with the digit number 4

Organic Fruit Labels
Five digits and starts with number 9

Genetically Modified Fruits
Start with the digit number 8

So next time you go shopping, remember these critical numbers and know how to avoid purchasing inorganic and GMO fruits.
Shop Safe :)

This is good to know because stores aren't obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically modified.

Okay, so if you come across an apple in the store and it's label is 4922, it's an conventional apple grown with herbicides and harmful fertilizers.
If it has a sticker 99222, it's organic and safe to eat.
If it says 89222, then RUN!!!! It has been genetically modified (GMO).

Nice information. Thanks! I didn't know about this!
As usual, it doesn't matter for governments & big companies to poison peoples, if they makes billions $$$. (this is what is happening with GMO)
There is some similar ("$$$ billions for Gov'/danger for peoples") related stuff about energy (car engines, electricity power) which could be:
*usefull;*pollution free;*free to use: I'm talking about: hydrogen & magnetic powered engines (which could be used in: cars, transport, electricity generator...) but still not in use (and not allowed, all inventors died, let says get killed!)... Must be interresting for this blog owner to add related articles...
Check the following: for explanations & pics.
Lots of related articles, and "home made" free energy engines are available on ; just to show that such technologies are real!
