I’ve been following this issue for a long time as the unwitting use of genetically modified foods escalates. Genetically modified foods are unsustainable, environmentally damaging, unhealthy, and don’t even increase yield (other than financially for their creators.) The pushers of GMO products have powerful political lobbyists, and huge profit incentive to keep this issue minimized; there is currently no GMO labeling of products, and no independent, objective governmental research being done about them.
I’ve been considering generating a blog post of my own synthesis of this issue, but after reading recently the first article below, I realized that others have already done it well and their work just needs to be disseminated. By checking out the links below you’ll get a much better sense of the issue and why it is important to stem this tide. Get informed and forward this blog as well to those who need a good summary of the situation.

Monsanto, the world’s biggest promoter and producer of GMO foods serves only organic food in their own cafeteria. Doesn’t that just sum it up?
