This is part 4 of WholeSoy & Co’s series on Non-GMO’s.
According to the Non-GMO Project’s website, “…it is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 80% of packaged products in the average U.S. or Canadian grocery store.” So what can you do to ensure that we have healthy, GMO-free food available for future generations?
Check out some of the following websites:
- The Center for Food Safety
- GM Watch
- The Institute for Responsible Technology
- The Organic & Non-GMO Report
- Seeds of Deception
Buy Verified Non-GMO products
Consumers vote best with the dollars they spend at the grocery store. If you buy non-GMO verified products, then the industry will know what is in demand. Make finding non-GMO foods easier by checking out the Non-GMO Shopping Guide and iPhone App before you head to the store.
Write to your elected officials
Tell them how you feel. If you don’t know who to write to simply go to congress.org and type in your zip code to find out who to contact and how to do it.
