Corporations like to defend GMOs in a number of ways, but my favorite argument is that GMOs have been proven safe. The fact is that genetically modified organisms (GMO) in our food has never been proven safe in any long-term study.
According to a recent report from the Environmental Working Group, here in the U.S. we eat an average of 193 pounds of GMOs each year, and a typical American adult weighs 179 pounds. So, what can we do about it?
In honor of non-GMO month, folks from the Institute for Responsible Technology have shared a great film with us, Scientists Under Attack, and a lot of information to go with it.
