Most Americans don't know what they are eating. Many aren't even reading the labels. I began reading labels several years ago when I noticed reactions in my kids after they ate something with a certain chemical additives like red 40, yellow 5, vanillin, BHT, etc. Changing our eating style has helped me and my family so much. If I don't know what's in it, I won't buy it, period.
I have started taking it a step further when I began learning about GMO's. GMO stands for genetically modified organisms
It's a challenging process but Whole Foods is committed to labeling all their products by the year 2018 and is the first national grocery store chain to set a deadline to do so. There may be many reasons people want to know what's in their food. Don't you think we have the right to know?
Currently there are The Nine GE Crops on the Market in the U.S.: Corn Soybeans Canola Cotton Sugar Beets Alfalfa Hawaiian Papaya Zucchini Yellow Crookneck Squash
Look for these on products to avoid GMO.
The USDA National Organic Standards prohibit the use of GMOs.
Look for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal
Third-party verification that a product is made without the intentional use of GMO ingredients.
Shouldn't the USA be on this list?
