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.

Vote with your pocketbook on GMO foods

GMO means Genetically Modified Organism.

Over 60 countries around the world require GMO labeling or ban GMOs outright. But not the U.S.

The food companies on the left of the graphic spent tens of millions of dollars in the last two labeling campaigns – in California and Washington State – to prevent you from knowing what’s in your food. You can even the score by switching to the brands on the right; all of whom stood behind the I-522 Right to Know campaign. Voting with your pocketbook, at every meal, matters. You can read more about GMOs on Dr. Mercola’s website.
