When purchasing fresh natural fruits and vegetables, these labels will help you avoid GMO like the poison it is! These labels are for US markets, if anyone has information for other markets, it would be helpful to other readers.
Conventional Food Labels, grown with herbicides, pesticides and harmful fertilizers, have four digits on their label and start with the digit 4. Such as 4922.
Organic Food Labels, are five digits and starts with number 9, such as 99222. You can feel safe to grab all foods with this label, it's organic and safe to eat or serve to your family and animals.
Genetically Modified Labels, start with the digit 8, as in 89222. This is important to know as it clearly identifies the product as GMO. You can drop it and run! Don't forget to tell the supermarket manager why you won't buy GMO. I find managers are interested and more than concerned about what consumers want. They will not continue to stock their shelves with products that consumers reject. If we are to reclaim our health, we must reject GMO.

Are Americans Apathetic Or Ignorant?Answer: I don't care and I don't know. Seriously, as a nation, we have become lazy and far too trustful that the "authorities" will always tell us the truth. The things that are done in our name are against the wishes of many Americans, we need the world's help on the important issues.
Europeans must easily question our sanity. Thirty countries, including Australia, Japan and all European countries have banned or have significant restrictions on GMO's. The US FDA continues to protect corporations rather than humans, based on studies created by the very same companies who profit from the sale of GMO's. We live in a twisted, corrupt world.
