GMO's that is ( genetically engineered foods). I don't, it doesn't always have to be organic but it does have to be non-gmo in order for me to buy it. I refuse to use my children as guinea pigs in finding out what this stuff actually does to our bodies. Did you know GMO's are banned in most other country's?. Our cancer rate is also much higher as well. Most popular name brand foods are GMO.

We try to stay away from the gmo foods as much as possible but it's hard to when not all foods are labeled ya know?

Trust me I know!! I had to do a lot of research to figure it out. It sucks they refuse to label it. If there's nothing wrong with it like they say then why can't they label it. That's what frustrates me the most. And now Monsanto, the maker of these genetically engineered seeds has a protection act! It sickens me that our government would ever pass such a thing. Basically they can not be sued if people get sick from thir product. Yet it's supposedlysafe?? Thn why do you need to be protected from law suits? It's do corrupt!!

Well, with legislatures refusing to pass laws requiring GMO products be labeled, yes, I'm sure we do eat them. We buy what we KNOW is GMO free, but I would still bet that half of what we buy it poisoned because they don't have to tell us what is in the food we eat here in the good old U S of A. 'Merica fuck the world!!!

That's our government for you. Corrupt, lying, distort the truth and all for the common good of the citizens.

Money equals power. It has happened all throughout history and will continue on, even when common sense and an overwhelming majority call for change.

Is not nearly as scary as people make it out to be. Genetically modified food is simply as taking out the gene that could cause a disease to infect a crop or give an animal a gene to naturally grow to be on the bigger side, that doesn't mean its some scary gene that makes franken-cows, its the same gene that cows normally produced, its something that been done for centuries, if you want bigger livestock you take the two biggest of your livestock and breed them so their babies will be big, this is just taking out the middle man and giving the animal the tall gene without having to use two large animals. In most cases the genes are natural and occur normally in the animal or plants DNA, they are simply selecting which gene they will inherit. Yes there are some bad types of GMO, but its all about knowing where you buy. I only buy products created without inhumane treatment of animals, I make sure of that, but GMO, I don't care much about.

What is another to tell.

Unfortunately, that isn't always true. It can be GMO with the 4 digit PLU too. It is not required to label them.

No they are genetically creating food in a lab. Nothing about that is natural. The worst part, there is no evidence that its doing what they say its meant to do. Then they are pourin gallons of pesticide on it wearing chemical suits to protect themselves, but it safe to eat? How sick and backwards is that.

I posted a link on my FB to an app that allows you to scan labels at the store and find out if they are Monsanto or Koch brothers related ( didnt work ) one person replied and was pissed saying it works both ways and this will allow me to find those items and purchase them TO SUPPORT MY CONSERVATIVE beliefs.. like WTF did I miss ?? Didn't really conservatives liked them?
