know your produce codes!

 organic/conventional is not the be-all end-all of sustainability. plenty of organic farms are just as big as conventional farms, and the food they grow is packed and shipped just the same. if your intent is to get fresher, more sustainable produce, buying organic will not always help. and I’d say you’re far, far better off buying local produce, even if it’s not organic.

From the Food Revolution Summit

“Independent studies show that genetically engineered food has the ability to create new, unintended toxins and increase allergens and other health problems.  In a 2011 study out of Canada, researchers found that 93% of blood samples and 80% of fetal cord blood samples contain a toxic found in a genetically engineered corn, Bt corn, that produces its own pesticides.”
