GMO

Did you know that in 2009, the USDA reported that 93% of soy, 93% of cotton, 86% of corn and 90% of canola crops were genetically engineered?  It is estimated that 80% of packaged foods in US grocery stores have GMO  (genetically modified organism) ingredients in them!

Even though over 30 other countries have banned or put restrictions on GMOs, here in the US they don’t even have to be listed on labels!!  I should be able to know what I am feeding my family!  The FDA needs to require labeling of GMO products!

If you don’t know much about genetically modified foods, the Food, Inc. documentary is a great way to learn more.
