Avoid Genetically Modified harmful foods & pesticides with this!

The problem with genetic modification in our food is at an all time high. It has been proven time and time again to be harmful. Google it. Please try to follow the rules below for fruits and veggies:

SAFE= 4 Digit 

UNSAFE= 5 Digit and if the FIRST digit is 8, it is Genetically Modified

SAFE= Organic if it starts with the number 9

Another great list is The Dirty Dozen and clean 15, to avoid pesticides: 

You don't need to buy ALL organic, but you need to be safe about what you eat and wash all produce!  

Hope this helps some of you! I know it has me!

  • My general knowledge and the news. 


  1. I just printed this out because I always seem to forget which are in the Dirty Dozen. If only I could afford to buy everything organic *sigh*

    1. Lol I do too. I printed out a little list and lost it, but remember most. A good idea I heard was to laminate the list and stick it in your wallet, in perhaps a picture fold or credit card slot. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing! I only buy a small portion of organic food. I get WIC and they give me a $10 voucher for fresh fruit and vegetables so I can get organic fruits and vegetables with it!

  3. I understand how pricey it can be. I only buy certain selections of the dirty dozen in organic and really try very hard to eat non modified produce. Just do the best you can. A little can go a long way for your health and I really think that it is not necessary to buy all organic. Just make sure it is not modified by checking the numbers and wash your produce good!

    1. To add, wash and PEEL all produce that can be peeled.

  4. This is a great resource! Thanks so much!
