Genetically engineered food is something I avoid.

But that’s just me. (And am I a fool to think I can avoid it at will? Apparently.)

Not sure what to think about GE (or GM/GMO) foods? Check out this infographic from Greenpeace to learn why it makes sense to “just say no to GMO.”

Note: Although Myth #3 is specific to China, it’s still relevant. In the U.S., labeling genetically modified foods is not required, making GM food difficult to avoid unless the food you purchase is certified organic.

The GM contamination register is a helpful link where you can search where, when and how contamination has taken place.
