Are your Kids Eating GMO corn, and More GMO News!

Are your kids eating the Monsanto GMO Sweet corn? 
"This summer, Monsanto began selling its first GMO sweet corn product in grocery stores such as Walmart. The sweet corn is engineered to withstand the weed-killer Roundup and also to contain an insecticide (Bt toxin) within the cells of the corn."~~Right to Know Blog.
 This is very sad, and most people do not know about it.  I had to explain to a family member the other day that GMO is not another term for organic.  It is a totally other subject matter and one I am appalled that not one of our Presidential Candidates are talking about.  This is a real problem!  The corn that they are making available in the stores might be the same corn that the rats ate! (see study/article here). 

On a happy note it looks like vote 37 is likely to pass in California! 
"By more than a 2-to-1 margin, California voters favor an initiative to require food manufacturers and retailers to label fresh produce and processed foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients.  With less than six weeks until election day, Proposition 37 is supported by 61% of registered voters and opposed by 25%, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll. An additional 14% were undecided or refused to answer."~~CARightToKnow.

Also, check out the Health Rangers thoughts on the 10 cereals your eating that are most likely to have GMO products in them!!  You might be surprised!   The top 10 breakfast cereals most likely to contain Monsanto's GMO corn.

Disclaimer:  I am in no way say that these food will give you cancer.  These test have not been done on humans.  This is information to bring to my readers so they can make informed decisions on the foods they purchase.  I support foods getting back to natural and green!
