This makes me glad that I've switched to mostly certified organic products; and worried because I didn't do it sooner! *Over 80% of corn grown in the US is a GMO, and over 90% of soybeans are.

Well, it seems for me;after, turning to basically consuming organics because of severe food/environmentally allergies which 'go from acute to chronic' the past forty years.It has been a positive;but,equally costly switch;but, that is the price to make for my health and well being.The annual readings of 'this and that';in,the growing,producing,harvesting,manufacturing is dealt with the 'stand-by cliche' 'Take it with a grain of salt'. is that sea salt,or, table salt,pre-tell"(smile).have a nice dayBon appetite to you & yours!

To tell the truth, I'm afraid of USA foods, too.

I'm a food snob and am pretty picky about what I eat. 

Generally if I can't find it in organic I will not buy it.

This study has been ripped to shreds over it's poor methodology and lack transparency. Personally, my diet is restricted enough without having to add non-GMO to the equation, LOL.
