2011: This is the second year for the NO GMO Campaign.    Natural Health News has been covering this issue for many years and our blog has many related articles.  Today I learned that USDA gave a $500,000 grant to the firm that wants to create GMO salmon.  Your tax dollars at work.

This month is NO GMO month and currently a walk to Washington is happening.  Let you member of CONgress know you don't want GMO in your food and you want labels.

from OCA - 4 Simple Ways to Avoid GMOs
1. Buy organic - organic producers are not allowed to use GMOs
2. Look for "Non-GMO" labels
3. Avoid risky ingredients: corn, soy, vegetable oil (canola, cottonseed, and soybean), sugarbeet sugar
4. Buy products listed in the Non-GMO Shopping Guide
Coming in October 2010, the first NON-GMO Month

In Europe, all products containing more than 0.9% GMO are labeled by the government. In the U.S. and Canada, on the other hand, government has done nothing to inform consumers about which food and products contain GMOs.

It is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 75% of the processed foods in the average grocery store.

Many people are concerned about the potential health risks of products made using the relatively new technology of genetic modification.  The Non-GMO Project respects your right to know what’s in the food you’re eating and the products you’re buying.

Something else worth mentioning is you need to know what the animals you eat are fed. Cows are often considered "Nature's Recyclers." For example, "Most feed is either byproduct of human product or unsuitable for human consumption but completely healthy for dairy cows!" This includes corn, cottonseeds, beet shavings, etc. So you can be consuming GMO indirectly unless you eat free-range, grass fed. Ugh.

A very valid point. It's scary really.
