Did you know ....?

The following infomation is from the Organic Consumers Association.

Did you know that genetically engineered ingredients are now found in 75% of all non-organic U.S. processed foods, even in many products labeled or advertised as "natural." In addition, the overwhelming majority of non-organic meat, dairy, and eggs are derived from animals reared on a steady diet of GM animal feed. Although polls indicate that 90% of Americans want labels on gene-altered foods, government and industry adamantly refuse to respect consumers' right to know, understanding quite well that health and environmental-minded shoppers will avoid foods with a GMO label.

In the absence of labels, how can one avoid genetically modified ingredients in food?  One way is to buy organic.  Here are nine more reasons to buy organic when you can.
