Default What those annoying stickers on your fruit mean to you

Look for the PLU codes on the labels stuck on your fruits and veggies.

A four-digit number means it has been conventionally grown.
A five-digit number beginning with "9" means it has been organically grown.
A five-digit number beginning with an "8" means it has been geneticall modified!

World-famous health benefits. Genetically modified (GM) foods have been in stores only since the 1990s, so we don't know the long-term health risks, and in a recent study by the Austrian government, GM corn was found to affect fertility in mice.

A more diverse planet ... Mainstream scientists are concerned that GM organisms will reduce biodiversity.No prominent pesticides. Although farmers can use some naturally occurring pesticides on organic foods, they're way less harmful than the synthetic kind.
