How to Tell if Produce is a Genetically Modified Organism

Because I am conscious of everything I put into my body, I care about the Genetically Modified Food, or Genetically Engineered food issue. Many food manufacturers are fighting against having the food labeled so we consumers can know what we are buying. If, as they say, the modifications are harmless, I don’t see why they are fighting the labeling.

I just ran across these infographics that I think can be helpful if you are a concerned consumer of fresh fruits and veggies.

Based on these, if you are trying to avoid GMO produce, you want to not take items preceded by an 8 on the label.

The President promised to get GMO labeling done, because Americans should know what they are eating.

If you have any thoughts on the GMO issue, please feel free to comment below.
