10 GMO Foods to leave out of your Summer Cookout

June 24, 2014. Consumers are rising up against genetically modified foods from companies like Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, Syngenta and the handful of other chemical and pesticide corporations. But with over 90 percent of all corn and soybeans in America being GMO, along with the 90 percent of grocery store packaged foods made from them, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the controversial food-like substitutes. Just in time for summer barbecue season, here are 10 GMO products to avoid if you can.

There’s a growing hysteria over the systematic replacement of America’s food supply with laboratory created, genetically altered substitutes. To listen to some young people, every item in the grocery store is GMO. While mostly true, in reality, the produce section of your market is about the only place in the grocery store you will find natural, non-GMO foods. But you still have to watch what you buy and eat. There are rules against labeling foods as GMO in America to protect corporations from consumer boycotts. But it you know what to look for, you can leave them out of this year’s summer barbecues and cookouts.

7 GMO foods to avoid like the plague

Our good friends at Natural News published a list of ‘The Top 7 GMO Crops you should avoid like the Plague’. They remind us, ‘Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plant and meat products that have had their DNA altered and possibly mutated in some laboratory, and it's all coined as the evolution of science and biotechnology for agriculture in order to fool the masses into believing that it's for "our own good." The biotech giants even teach it in schools and at Disney World now, and they say it all without ever telling anyone what they're REALLY doing, and that is inserting the genes from other plants, animals, viruses and bacteria into food - often in the form of pesticides that can't be washed off.’

The publication goes on to warn Americans that GMOs have even spread from our food supply into our nation’s vaccine supply, ‘Ninety percent of corn, soy, canola and cottonseed is GMO - the 11th plague, cancer food, has fallen upon mankind. There are salmon in the ocean with genes from a much larger eel. There are flu shots and vaccines, swine flu for example, that carry GMO bacteria genes, dangerous virus combinations and “weaponized mycoplasma.”’

For parents and young adults who want to protect themselves, here are the 7 GMO crops to avoid (from NaturalNews.com):

  • corn
  • soy
  • cottonseed oil
  • alfalfa
  • papaya (Hawaiian)
  • canola oil
  • sugar beets

The 10 GMO products sold in America

Many people believe that all fruits and vegetables are GMO. But the fact is, some are simply cross-pollinated to achieve superior size or quality, not genetically modified. Others are layered with dangerous pesticides to insure as much of the farmer’s field gets to market as possible. While pesticides are dangerous, they don’t automatically mean GMO. And others, like potatoes, are just beginning their infiltration of the nation’s food supply with ever-mounting resistance.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 GMO products sold in America. It’s a combination of two independent lists provided by EatLocalGrown.com and JustLabelIt.org respectively:

The 10 most common GMO products sold in America

  • corn
  • soy/soybeans
  • canola oil
  • cotton
  • sugar/sugar beets
  • alfalfa
  • papaya (Hawaiian)
  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • aspartame*

*aspartame is used as a substitute for sugar in many products. It’s created from genetically modified bacteria.

With countless organizations and even countries warning about the dangers of GMO products, the tide seems to be turning against them. The first GMO labeling law was recently passed on the state level. And Washington is now scrambling to recruit support for two opposing pieces of legislation. Both would supersede any and all state laws. One would require labeling of GMO products in America, while the other would ban it.
