You Probably Have Eaten Genetically Modified Food

Folks, we have a problem. Although up to 75 percent of processed foods in grocery stores contain genetically altered foods, only 24 percent of Americans believe they have eaten them and 58 percent say they have not. Since we already know that 90 percent of the money people spend on food is for processed food it is highly likely you have eaten GM food.

A recent study found that 89 percent of the people interviewed believe the FDA should not allow genetically modified foods on the market until they're proven safe. Unfortunately, the FDA declared its current stance on genetically engineered foods in 1992. It states that biologically engineered foods, which contain DNA from other organisms, are no different and pose no greater safety concerns than any other food.
