One health and nutrition site that I often frequent is Mark’s Daily Apple. He recently had posts on cracking the code on produce. You know that little sticker with the 4 or 5 digit code that’s slapped on items in the market? It’s not just to determine how much you should be charged, it’s also an indicator of whether the produce is organic, genetically engineered, among other options. Read his informative post: cracking the code.
Additionally, Gaiam collected a great list of information from the Environmental Working Group to determine the list of organic produce to buy. It answers the pressing question “Do I really need to buy ALL organic produce?” It definitely makes more of a difference with some items compared to others. Check out this post, bookmark it, and use it when buying your veggies and fruits. Eat happy and healthy!
