Whether other changes are made or that change might prove harmful in some as-yet unknown way is unknown.

GMO's have always been stealthy: they've been in the food supply for twenty years, particularly in the form of corn and corn products, products that contain beet sugar, soy products, and canola. What has proven discouraging is the revelation that some brands marketed as "organic" have been exposed as containing GMO. Is it really going to take burning GMO crops in the fields to show the gov't that Americans are serious about banning GMO? #bangmo #nogmo

The more I hear and read about GMOs and their insidious entry into our food chain the angrier I get. We can't avoid them not matter vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, carnivore...GMOs are in somethingwe eat, sometimes on a daily basis. We Need labelling.

Have youu noticed that more and more peopl are suffering from allegeries and digestive intolerances ...look at the common IBS which is related FODMAPs stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides, and Polyols. Good for the medical world perhaps but so for our health and wellbeing.
