    Are you eating Genetically Modified Foods?

    The answer could shock you, and before you answer sources claim American could currently consume it without knowing it. The FDA has already approved  Clone Meat and Milk for sale.

    I'm sure that I am on some occasions as GM foods are not labelled as such.  I go to great lengths to avoid GM foods and believe I am successful  at least 95% of the time.  I believe GM foods should be labelled as such so consumers like myself can make an informed decision.

    Not if I can help it. I go out of my way to avoid GM foods whenever I can. I look for the Non-GMO Project logo when I shop, and will pay extra for items that wear it. I also buy organic produce, because anything grow from GM seed cannot be designated organic.

    I'm just not interested in eating food that has been altered in a lab, and is only tested by the manufacturers. There is no independent study showing the long-term effects of eating food items that have been modified, and until there is, I feel better avoiding them.

      GM foods aren't labelled, but many foods that don't contain GMOs bear the Non-GMO Project logo on the front. Also, there are many lists of produce items you shouldn't buy unless they're organic (non-GMO). Just Google to find them.
