Foods that are G.M.O. (genetically modified organisms) are always grown using modern, non-organic farming methods. The combination can easily become less nutritional than a diet of processed carbohydrates and cola.
There is a means to differentiate the good produce from the Frankenfoods in U.S. retailers, despite the fact that the F.D.A. does not require that G.M. (genetically modified) foods be labeled in any way that would be easily understood. This is, of course, intentional.
Fruits and vegetables in the U.S. usually have a small sticker on them. This sticker will include a "PLU" number. The first digit in that number is significant.
The Meaning Of The PLU Number (First Digit)
|8||The product is genetically modified, and almost any chemical may have been used on it. It is a verified Frankenfood. Please boycott all companies producing and distributing it.|
|3||The product is likely genetically modified, and almost any chemical may have been used on it, at any time. The genetic heritage is unknown or not disclosed.|
|4||The product was grown with synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides.|
|9||This is organic. It is the highest quality produce, most nutritious, most natural, and the most safe.|

If you are wondering why the system is made to be so confusing, it is because our regulators are encouraging us, on behalf of their industry partners, to eat the new chemically-laced, G.M.O. Frankenfoods, without our consent or knowledge.
