How to Avoid GM Foods When Grocery Shopping

How to Identify GMO Foods

by Sarka-Jonae Miller | Natural News

(NaturalNews) A new Californian law may require manufacturers in the
United States to label genetically modified foods but even if California
passes this law now and other states follow suit, it could be a long
time before labeling is the norm. As many as 70 to 80 percent of the
packaged foods in the supermarket contain GM ingredients and even some
non-packaged food could be dangerous. The best way for consumers to
protect themselves from genetically modified organisms, GMOs, is to
learn which products and types of foods most likely contain them, plus
how to identify safe foods.

GM corn is in everything

Corn is one of the biggest GM food products that threatens consumers. A study published in the Food and Chemical Toxicology journal
found that rats fed GM corn developed large tumors. Corn-based
ingredients are prevalent in processed foods. Even items like vinegar
may be distilled from GM corn.

GM corn is a main ingredient in animal feeds given to animals on
factory farms. People who eat animal products from factory farms are
consuming what the animals ate.

How to avoid GM corn? Avoid processed and packaged foods,
conventional meat and dairy, and obvious corn product. Around 12,000
products in the typical U.S. supermarket contain corn. The best way to
protect yourself is to buy organic foods labeled as non-GMO. Ironically,
organic corn on the cob might be safe while the white vinegar and
cookies in the next isle are not.

The other three main offenders

Besides corn, the three main ingredients to watch out for are soy,
canola and cotton. The USDA reports that 73 percent of corn crops in the
U.S. are genetically modified, as are 75 percent of canola crops, 87
percent of cotton, and 91 percent of soy. Consumers can easily avoid
canola oil and make sure their tofu or soy products are labeled non-GMO,
but many foods have
hidden ingredients. For example, the artificial sweetener aspartame
used in diet drinks and some foods as a sugar alternative is made
through a fermentation process that includes corn and soy.



Cotton may not be an ingredient to worry about when grocery shopping,
but it is still found in most homes in clothes, sheets and towels. Some
snacks like potato chips may also be fried in cottonseed oil.
Cottonseed oil is common in margarine and vegetable oils. Whether people
wear it or eat it, GM cotton is a problem.

Analyzing foods

Most dairy products and meats come from animals fed GM corn, soy and
canola. Consumers can look for organic labels or those that state that
the product is rBST-free. Cows in factory farms are injected with a GM
hormone called rBST. This gets into milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream,
butter, and all other dairy products.

Ha! Terbo, that's just too funny! Ok, here we go! GM seed can be grown and certified as organically grown if the ground that they have been grown in has been certified as organic. Heirloom seeds are best, so when planning a garden, seek out heirlooms. Seek out farm markets with local growers, they may not be certified organic but claim to be natural, that just means that they have grown it as organically as they can but are not certified, but keep in mind that the seeds they planted were possibly gm. Best thing to do, buy heirloom seeds and grow your own! Try and find a supplier of naturally raised or organic meats, eggs, milk etc. Not that easy in the cities but if you go to the farm markets or stores that sell organic that is your best bet. If you shop the grocery stores, shop the perimeters and leave the inner isles alone when it comes to food. Yes salsa, vinegar and some canned goods are ok, sometimes you just do what you have to do, but the rest - leave it be unless you can get it from a reputable company, Bob's Red Mill is good!



Take care of the land and the animals and they will take care of you!

LOL terbs yep that's about what I thought too!!

HL thanks for that advice. I tried growing my own veges this year again but it is waaaaay to hot for them to survive! Even though I kept constant water on them that costs a fortune, they still all died from the heat. Also the pests this year were particularly bad, I even spoke to a lady that is a grower and she said the same, argh! I'm going to give them another go in winter!

Well, NanneeRose, if you're going to grow 'winter food', you may want to dress the foods very warm, you know, wool parkas, snowmobile suits, thick woolen gloves,and socks, and double insulated boots,scarves, and electric blankets, or they will really freeze their 'roots' off!! lol!
