2. If the sticker on the apple starts with letter 9 for example 94750, it means that the fruit is hundred percent organic and no chemical or pesticides has been used on it thereby making it the best for human consumption.
3. When the sticker on the apple starts with number 8, it means that the fruit is genetically modified. Recall that genetically modified fruits are genetically engineered by changing the structure of their DNA. Research has found out that the Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) may cause serious health challenges to your body and may even lead to cancer.
