It is estimated that about 75 percent of processed foods sold in the U.S. contain at least some genetically modified food ingredients. Unlike many other countries, there is no law in the U.S. requiring the labeling of foods that contain GM ingredients. ~ Health Freedoms
Most of us don’t know it, but many of the foods we eat today have been genetically altered. Seventy percent of processed food in grocery stores contains some amount of genetically engineered components, according to the Council for Responsible Genetics, a nonprofit in Cambridge, Massachusetts that fosters debate on biotechnology.
The list includes some all-American favorites such as Kellogg’s and General Mills cereals, Heinz ketchup, Carnation chocolate milk, Coca-Cola, and Beech-Nut baby food. And it’s not just packaged foods: Thirty-four percent of the corn we eat, 75 percent of soy products, and 15 percent of canola oil has been genetically altered in some way. >
