Healthy Living: Are you concerned about the lack of labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods?

8 Things You Can Do

From Justlabelit.org 

1. Comment! It takes 30 seconds to tell the FDA that you have the right to know what’s in your food.

2. Eat fresh! While some produce is genetically engineered, most GMOs will be found in processed foods containing soy and corn. Eat more fresh vegetables and unprocessed foods. Your body will thank you and you will avoid genetically engineered foods.

3. Avoid the five products that are most likely to be genetically engineered (GE) – unless they state that they are not made with genetically engineered ingredients, have a verifiable claim such as Non-GMO Project Verified, or they are USDA certified organic: Corn, Soy, Canola, Cotton and Sugar made from beets (sugar from cane is NOT GE).

4. Look for the USDA Organic seal and buy organic – The National Organic Standards prohibit the use of genetic engineering.

5. Download the True Food Shopper’s Guide from the Center for Food Safety for a list of brands with products that claim to be made without genetic engineering (also available via mobile app).

6. Forward and share the Just Label It: Right To Know infographic with your friends and family.

7. When in doubt, ask! Call the manufacturer of your favorite foods and ask if they contain genetically engineered products. This way you get the information you need and you can let the company know how you feel about GE foods.

8. Share the One Mom’s Story or Dining in the Dark videos with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter to encourage them to tell the FDA to Just Label It.
