Tidbit Tuesday #1: SAY NO TO GMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am going to try to start a "Tidbit Tuesday" blog on here...I promise I will try to update it weekly, but that MAY not happen! :) 

For my first tidbit...

I read an interesting article on a friend's facebook page today about how to know which fruit in the grocery store is organic, genetically modified/enhanced, or just plain ole regular (non-organic, but not GM).  I have posted the link to the article at the bottom of this blog if you are interested - but to sum it all up, this is how you tell...

First... look at the sticker on the fruit... you know the one you ALWAYS have to pull off before you eat it.  If the fruit is:

Organic - there will be a 5 digit number on the sticker that starts with 9, ex. 94521

Genetically Modified - there will be a 5 digit number on the sticker beginning with an 8, ex. 85641

Non Organic/Non GM - there will be a 4 digit number on the sticker, ex. 4568

Why is this important?  Well obviously you want to eat organic if possible, but a good second option is the non GM option.  Never, ever, ever, ever, ever get the genetically modified version (which I am sad to say is the cheaper more cost efficient version normally seen on every isle at grocery stores). 

SAY NO TO GMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
