GMO and soybeans
Posted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at 5:22 PM
Ok people................I saw Food Inc. last night. I tell you, I have considered myself pretty informed until I watched that movie. Yes, I knew about the horrible slaughter houses and the cruelty to animals but the rest of it including the industrialized food system is unbelievable.
Sometime back I remember one of you talking about how you only buy organic tofu. When I read it the GMO factor did not occurr to me (even though that was the topic.......duh). Since GMO soy beans are so prevalent in our society, how do we know which products are and aren't GMO? According to the movie California shot down the labelling (I think that was how it went) but is it a federal law now? Obviously this applies to anything made with soy beans so how do you know? Is the fact that it is organic mean that it in not GMO.
Im a bit freaked out about this. In fact, Im having a Soelent (spelling?) Green moment.
Please someone knowledgable clarify for me.
