A Way to Identify GMOs

In Europe they ban GMOs because they think they might not be safe. Here, the US won't label them so's if they turn out not to be safe, we won't know! And also won't be able to sue. This was driving me nuts.

The first thing you can do to protect youself is BUY ORGANIC.

However, you may already have noticed that the PLU (bar code like thingie on the sticker) for organic produce always starts with a 9. Well, guess what, the PLUs for GMOs start with an 8. STAY AWAY!

You can get the whole guide to food PLUs here: (http://www.plucodes .com/docs/ IFPS-plu_ codes_users_ guide.pdf
