Two documentary films that I found ( 'FOOD INC.'; and 'DE-CONSTRUCTING DINNER') among others I've watched!

They were real eye openers for me: "SO THAT'S HOW THEY DID IT" .

Check them both out,

Do your research!

Don't just take my word for it!

Happy researching emoticon

USDA Organic means among other things no GMO allowed. There are efforts in some states to require labeling of GMO foods. Many foods that are not are not organic still do not contain GMO's but if in doubt it's good to know your supplier. This is why it makes sense to buy local if you can't afford organic.

Do U.S. organic standards exclude GMO foods?

Great thread! I never want to forget about this issue, especially since the number of GMO foods is growing almost daily.
If we don't get GMO labeling in this country buying organic and growing things ourselves will always be the only way to avoid GMO's.
