Yes, buying organic is better when it comes to avoiding pesticides, but itâ€™s not always necessary. Learning to read labels and identifying genetically modified foods will go a long way in promoting health and saving some cash.
First, letâ€™s learn how to read produce labels. By learning these easy-to-remember tips, you will have the ability to identify organic produce, non-organic and/or genetically modified. Genetically modified foods have been banned in many countries and have no benefit to our health.
