    Yup. Unfortunately, only the people who KNOW that it's garbage care about it being labeled. That's why the corporations are so desperate to NOT have labeling - more people knowing their food is actually made out of garbage won't be good for profits.

    Another reason to cut these big companies out of your own personal food chain. Plus vote for prop 37 if you live in California.

    Are you sure? My personal observation is that WM (the groceries that is) is not as cheap as they want people to believe. Personally I shop at Kroger a lot which I find cheaper and the quality is way better. I've also heard that Walmart does funny things with their meats. Like adding some chemicals to preserve it longer or whatever.

    Not just pesticides~ Round-up too. They've been growing Round-up Ready® grains for about 20 years now.

    This is the wrong attitude: gene splicing and manipulation ideally need to be proven safe to be sold, not proven harmful when/if it causes problems.

    This is disgusting. It is amazing how much sway marketing tactics have over people.

    True...

    I'm not terribly afraid of a couple of ears of locally grown old fashioned sweet corn when it's in season.
    You're in O'town so you probably know that it's not hard to find good local smaller farm old fashioned stuff like "silver queen" and such when the time is right.
    Organic and Non-GMO.

    Not something to eat all the time for sure.
    But a nice nostalgic treat for once or maybe twice in a nice and short 'prime' season.

    I can't believe anyone, besides Monsanto, would argue that GMO's are harmless...
    I'm not a fan of Walmart either.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Found this link on the celiac forum: Russia suspends import and use of American GM corn after study revealed cancer risk | Mail Online

    Monsanto IS truly the devil's bitch!
