Genetically Modified Food Should be Labeled!

Today I want to share a few more thoughts related to my Monday post Why You Should be Concerned About Roundup.  The message I wanted to get through on Monday was that a) glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to birth defects and various cancers and b) Roundup is likely finding its way into our food supply via genetically modified crops.  Today I want to talk just a little bit more about this idea of genetically modified crops finding their way into what we eat.

First I would like to direct your attention to an organization called the Organic Consumers Association, which

deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children's health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. We are the only organization in the US focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation's estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers.
