GMO Foods


gmo “If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t.”                                                   Michael Pollan


The health risks posed by GMO (genetically modified organisms) are real and dangerous.

I urge you to read more about GMO foods to understand why they are so dangerous.  Go to nongmoshopping guide for a comprehensive explanation of GMOs, as well as tips on how to avoid GMO foods when shopping or dining out.   In general, it’s safest to buy organic and certified organic foods which are less likely to contain GMOs.   Avoid at-risk ingredients like soybeans, canola, cottonseed, corn and sugar from sugar beets found in processed foods.  Always read food labels.

Download the free Non-GMO Shopping Guide app available at the app store for smartphones and Ipads to help you with your safer food choices.

  1. Betsy, I recently added a series of links to my gardening blog that may be of interest to you. California is trying to legislate the labeling of GMOs. I posted links about the legislation, along with a trailer for the Percy S documentary about his battle with Monsanto. You might want to add a section too (like blogroll). I will also add your blog to my list. Best. Thanks for the tip.

    • Thanks for the information. Your pictures are beautiful – you are a very good photographer.

      I wrote in a previous blog about the “Just Label It” campaign going on. Hopefully non-CA readers will go to the website and sign the petition. I feel positive change is coming to end the GMO debacle – there is much more awareness now! Hope I’m right.

  2. American’s are increasingly “going” organic. But the process of living organic isn’t made easy by the system in place. In fact, much of the food labeled organic still contains non-organic by products. The majority of the plastics are made with GE crops, specifically corn.

    • Thank you for commenting on my post. I agree with you, but I am encouraged to see how much easier it is to go “organic” than it was when I was a young adult in the 1970’s. We still have a long way to go, but we are headed in the right direction. Even the multi-national corporations feel the pull to offer organic products.

      I checked out your website – very comprehensive and a great resource. Good for you!

  5. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people
    consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
