You buy fruits every day? You don’t pay attention to the stickers on them, you should pay attention on them, read more about that.



  • If on the sticker are 4 numbers and the first number begin with the numbers 3 or 4, that means that the fruit has grown on the second half of the 20th century. The implication of this is that the fruit was most likely subjected to inorganic fertilizers.
  • If on the sticker are 5 numbers and if the number start with number 9, that means that the fruit is cultivated using traditional meands. With other words that means that the fruit is organic and it is not grown with harmful pesticides.
  • If on the sticker are 5 numbers and the number start with 8, that meands that the fruit is genetically modified and it is grown with pesticides. These fruits are referred to as GMO.
So whenever you go to your local grocery store or open market to buy your fruits be more observant and buy only those fruits which are organic as they are healthier.
