GMOs: simple ways to avoid them in your diet | PCC Natural Markets
There are many reasons to choose foods without genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — from the risks they pose to the environment to concern about their effects on consumer health. Despite industry claims, there is not a single commercial GMO crop with increased yield, drought-tolerance or enhanced nutrition.
Unlike many countries around the world, the U.S. does not require labeling of foods containing GMOs. That's troubling when you consider an estimated 60 to 70 percent of packaged food in mainstream grocery stores contain them. Assume a packaged food has GMOs unless it's clearly labeled otherwise.
