Genetically Modified Food

Do you know that "between 60% and 70% of multi-ingredient foods in the United States may have been made with "biotechnology crops", meaning GM crops", according to an e-mail i received from Kellogs after inquiring if they use GM foods for their cereals. "Like most other food makers in the nation, we buy the ingredients for our foods on the open market and it is likely that these ingredients could have biotech content in the same proportion that it occurs in the national supply.". What drove me nuts about the response was that they don't openly say they buy GM food ( like they would not know). In Europe, they have to label on the package if GM ingredients was used. Why not in the US. Check out The Non GMO Project for more info on GM food and their risks and how to avoid them.
