How to eliminate GMO's from your diet recap

GMO's have been all over the news of late. From President Obama signing the "Monsanto Protection Act" to the cross licensing agreement reached between Monsanto and Bayer, it seems Monsanto is invading our lives and diets. Why all the stink over Monsanto and GMO's? Well, that is a good question and one best saved for another forum. My goal with this series of articles is to inform you, my good readers, how to avoid adding genetically modified foods in your diet.

There has been a lot of talk about how bad genetically modified foods are and how little research has been done to look into the effects of these items on our health. What little that is known is not good news for consumers. GMO's are full of potential carcinogenic compounds (compounds that cause cancer), allergens and toxins, among other things. Some scientists believe that the dramatic upswing in food allergies is due to the flooding of our diets with these genetically altered foods. Until more testing has been completed, a lot of people are choosing to avoid GMO's altogether, but that is difficult seeing as how food manufacturers are not required to tell us when their foods contain them. In an effort to help educate you all, I have put together a series of articles to help show you how to avoid GMO's if you choose to do so.
