It's kind of like the drug pusher who gives you enough heroin to get you hooked, and then tells you it is $100 a packet from here on out.

I guess the silver lining in this cloud is that if mankind manages to destroy the world with a nuclear war, these super weeds will survive.

There is also a non-GMO shopping list on this site that tells you which foods are currently NOT GMO.  The two major foods to watch out for are corn and canola oil (rape seed). Corn ingredients have so many different names that you really have to be informed to stay on top of things. It has already been shown that GMOs are harmful to the health of humans (not to mention all the factory food animals they are feeding it too, including farmed fish).

We are surrounded by GMO corn and soybeans here!
