How to Avoid Foods Made With Genetically Modified Organisms
The unsavory truth is that you have a 75 percent chance of picking food made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) at the supermarket, because at least seven out of every 10 items have been genetically modified!
It’s not impossible, however, to make wise, non-GMO food buys. And there may be more non-GMO options than you think.
You can find a comprehensive list of GMO free products in this Non-GMO Shopping Guide. FREE and in handy PDF format, this brochure prepared by Dr. Mercola and the Non-GMO Project (NGP) lists manufacturers who produce GMO free:

- Meat, fish, and eggs
- Dairy and dairy alternatives
- Baby foods and infant formula
- Grains, beans, and pasta
- Condiments, oils, dressings, and spreads
- And many more!
Tips for Avoiding GMO Crops
Tip #1. Buy Organic!
Stick to products labeled “100% organic,” “organic,” or “made with organic ingredients.”
Tip #2. Go For Non-GMO Labels.
Look for labels with “Non-GMO” or the spelled-out “Made without Genetically Modified Ingredients” version. Products may also carry the Non-GMO Project Seal, which has third-party verification in its compliance of Non-GMO Project standards.
Tip #3. Say No to At-Risk Ingredients.
Avoid products made with any of the “Big Four” GM crops: corn, soybeans, canola, and cottonseed.
Tip #4. Consult books and online resources on GMOs.
Read Jeffrey Smith’s Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. Other useful resources provide a comprehensive list of non-GMO products, including this Non-GMO Shopping Guide.
Now there's hardly any reason for you not to avoid GMO-laced products. They pose a barrage of potential risks to your health, not to mention allow you to get conned by their profiteering producers!
