It’s tougher to avoid GMOs than you might think.
This is a new version of a Hank D and the Bee cartoon I did after Halloween. It was a popular cartoon so I wanted to share it with a larger audience. Enjoy…and share.

I have started looking at the numbers on the produce to see if it is genetically modified. I wouldn’t doubt it if the government gets rid of the requirement to have to label food as genetically modified.
Um. There is no current requirement to label GMO-containing foods, unfortunately — the government can’t get rid of what’s not there… And actually the whole ‘PLU code to tell you whether it’s GMO’ thing has been debunked. Mandatory labeling is the only path forward, if we want to at least have a better idea what we’re eating.
I’m working a different angle, because I think we can’t keep just pushing regulation and playing by Monsanto’s preferred rules (when it comes to regulation, they have the home court advantage). Instead, we have to change the game: http://openfi.re/projects/urbsly
I did not know about the numbers on produce. After reading the articles in the more on GMOs and Monsanto section, it seems to be clear that money to the politicians will be the major factor in deciding if food will have to be labeled as genetically modified or not.
Genetically modified food is everywhere. Money and greed control our society. Our health and well being is in the balance. All of our leaders are short term thinkers. They regulations and safety controls we need will never come. The only way to know whats in the food your eating is to grow your food yourself
