Bad Fruit to Avoid!
The Old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”,well in today’s world unfortunately that’s no longer the case. Today You must do your research, and planning BEFORE you go into the Super Market!
For example, did you know that if the tiny little oval sticker on your produce has a 5 digit code, beginning with the #8, it’s Genetically Modified?
And did you know that if the sticker on your fruits and veggies has 4 digit code, and it begins with the #4… the produce is grown with chemicals and pesticides?
Always make sure the stickers on your produce have a 5 digit code, that begins with the #9, to ensure you’re getting naturally grown, organic produce.
Foods grown today have been plagued by toxins that are silently making us fat and sick. Almost everything that comes in a package,bag or box has been modified, preserved, and who knows what else has been added!
Now on to the Bad Fruit… You see, over 80% of all fruits sold in the United States alone have been contaminated. These fruits have been Genetically Modified in order for food companies to produce them in mass quantities.
Watch out for fruits in all forms like… Strawberries, canned peaches, Nectarines, even Dried Raisins. For example, 54 different pesticide residues were detected among strawberry samples. Did you know in canning the processing of canned fruits eliminates the rich antioxidants that help our bodies fight off diseases and prevent us from getting sick.
Here is a Quick reference List of those Fruit Stickers:
- 5 Digit Code beginning with 8 = GMO (avoid)
– 4 Digit Code beginning with 4 = Grown with chemicals and pesticides (avoid)
– 5 Digit Code beginning with 9 = All-natural, organic
I hope we are all learning what to look for and for sure buyer beware of the Bad Fruit! My bet tip is to always wash your fruit, and vegetables!
