More and more American’s are demanding to know if the foods they are consuming contain GMO products.
New Consumers Report Poll
…the choice is easy; Remove GMOs.
Food Products Containing GMOs are a serious concern for the majority of American’s. If GMOs concern you- what do you do? Start by reducing or eliminating GMOs products from your grocery purchases. Doing so will decrease the demand. When the demand decreases on GMO labeled food manufactures will need to make changes. We are already seeing mounting pressure from groups across the US demanding GMO labeling of products. With this demand for labeling puts manufacturers in a bind. Asking themselves, do we want to label our products containing GMOs or do we want to remove GMOs from our products? They see the tide changing and people will stop buying food containing GMOs if they have a label listing it as such. This will hurt their profits and they know it.
…what should we do
In the meantime; For some of us it seems like a daunting task to walk through the food isles looking for non-GMO products when food is already expensive. If you and your family can slowly transition to eating more whole foods you have won half the battle. It is a mindset that we need to prepare food to eat healthy -not for convenience.
Do you see a lot of commercials for whole foods like apples?
With the exception of bananas (which are used as a sale item to pull people into the store) we do not see a lot of commercials for whole unprocessed foods. Why? An apple is one of the top ten most natural convenience foods.
