Even scarier, we have no clue if the burger we just fed our kids from the fast food restaurant or the snack from the gas station convenience are modified. If you think about it we are talking about food that on the micro-level has been altered from its original organic DNA structure.
They are new species of food not designed by nature, but in laboratories. How and where do we buy good wholesome and nutritious food? How do we know when our food is safe?
We created this section not to debate the core of GMO food, but to give you information that you can then use to make your own choices about GMO. GMO is here and has been for some time now.
This forum is also a place for our customers to inquire, a resource from us, our partners and advocates throughout the world to be used to source non-GMO food information. It is a new feature for us, and as we go, we will be adding new strings and weaving thinking to this section of the website.
We will include input and nutritional sources from vendors, health practitioners, scientists, business leaders and others. If you would like us to include your favorite vendor or thought leader in our list, please let us know and we’ll contact them about being a part of our journal.
