Non-GMO Shopping Guide
December 3, 2009 § Leave a comment
I got an interesting email today from the Institute of Responsible Technology (IRT). IRT and the Center for Food Safety created a website where you can search foods to see if they may contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This is really going to take the guesswork out of shopping for GMO free foods.
In case you were not aware, GMO foods are not labeled so you have no way of knowing that it contains GMOs. No testing or long term studies have been done on GMO safety. According to IRT, 53% of Americans said they would avoid GMOs if it was labeled. The easiest way to avoid GMOs is to eat organic vegetables and meats and avoid processed foods and foods containing the “big four”: corn, canola, cottonseed, and soybeans.
Here’s another opportunity where we can support companies that do the right thing. You can find this great website here.
