Whenever I mention or post an article about GMOs, it’s inevitable that I’ll have some friends who will have no idea what I’m talking about.
And I don’t blame them for not knowing. I was just like them three years ago. Whereas I thought my husband and I ate a relatively healthy diet, I had no idea we were consuming food that had been genetically modified every day.
I discovered GMOs soon after my first child was born. A friend had started researching and eliminating certain foods—including GMOs—from her son’s diet because he was having severe health issues. She read ingredient labels meticulously.
“You can’t trust a package label just because it says ‘all-natural,’” she told me.
So I started doing some research myself. And what I found was alarming.
