How to Determine If Your Fruit Was Organically Grown or is GMO Contaminated

Although I talk about the damage genetically modified foods can do to your health a lot on my Web site, you may forget one of the easiest ways to spot them: Reading the labels on your fruit.

A reminder about the numeric code that can be a boon to your health:

  • Conventionally grown fruits are marked with four digits.
  • Organic fruits come with a five-digit code starting with 9.
  • Genetically modified fruits also have a five-digit code, but start with 8.
