Food Shopping Secrets Revealed

This is an article food manufacturers really don’t want you to read…

How do you know if you’re eating genetically modified foods?

How do you know if your food has been sprayed with nerve gas and
other chemicals?

To be more competitive in the marketplace, food manufactures will stop at nothing to continue making their food cheaper and cheaper…

In the end this means that we all suffer the consequences of eating  fake food.

Of course, the consequence is a weakened immune system from constantly having to try to detox and digest these chemicals. This can lead to auto-immune diseases and many other illnesses, and unfortunately, conventional medicine very rarely makes the tie to the poisons we ingest and the disease they cause.

To most the connection is obvious and scientifically proven, but nonetheless, lobbyists out number congressman by at least 2 to 1. The ray of light in all of this is that there is a secret to knowing what you’re eating.

When you’re shopping for fruit and vegetables it’s important to look at the sticker on the produce that you’re buying.

By just looking at what number the sticker code starts with you will be able to determine how that food was brought to the market. The sticker is called the “Price Look Up Code” and what you want to look for is 1 of these 4 numbers.

A “3” or “4” denotes conventionally grown food. This means this produce has been sprayed with toxic chemicals that are often times unable to be washed off your foods. Stay clear of these.

An “8” means that the food has been genetically engineered. (The chemical structure of the plant has been changed.) This basically means what you’re eating is not actually natural food, but a man made food made to look like healthy fruit, vegetables, or other food item. These items may also have been sprayed with chemicals as well. Definitely do not eat these.

A “9” means the product was produced organically. It has not been treated with chemicals and you can feel safer knowing this food was not sprayed with synthetic poisons. These are the healthy ones to choose.

Here is an example of the “codes” from a Granny Smith apple:

4139: Conventional Granny Smith apple
94139: Organic Granny Smith
84139: Genetically Modified Granny Smith

Also, it’s important to keep in mind that about 70% of processed food ingredients come from genetically modified food products (mainly corn, soy, and canola oil) and/or chemically sprayed foods.

This is scary.

Is it any wonder why obesity is on the rise and our health care costs have spiraled out of control? Where do we think all this weight gain and disease is coming from?  Think about it for a moment…

The great news is that you have the power to take control of your health by NOT supporting chemical based GMO (genetically modified) or GE (genetically engineered) farming.

Will organic cost more at the register?

Of course, but in the long run you’ll save money on your healthcare bills. Better yet, you won’t have to pay with your health, or quality of life in the end. (AND the organic foods tend to last much longer than their non organic counter parts)

I hope this article and the 3 secret codes food manufacturers don’t want you to know about helps you care for yours and your family’s health and wellbeing.

Food is the foundation for your body, mind, and health.

Choose wisely. (You’ll Be happy you did)
