Guesthouse for the Soul

“A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul: a sick body is a prison” - Sir Francis Bacon

9 notes

CHECK YOUR PRODUCE STICKERS
LOOK FOR STICKERS WITH FIVE DIGIT CODES BEGINNING WITH THE NUMBER 9; WHICH INDICATES ORGANIC PRODUCE.
AVOID FOOD WITH FIVE DIGIT CODES STARTING WITH 8; ex. 81549 Which indicates Genetically Engineered Food.
I prefer using the term Genetically Engineered Food to Genetically Modified Organism. Foods have been Genetically Modified for hundreds of years through selective breeding and cross-pollination.
Genetically Engineered Food has been altered in a laboratory through gene splicing to create something not found in Nature.
The code 4131 in the above photo indicates a conventionally grown Fuji Apple. Price Lookup (PLU) Codes can be searched here.
"Produce shopping tips—those annoying stickers on fruits and veggies tell you A LOT! 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO), and 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs).”
