For some time now most of food that we buy in grocery stores chances are that food purchased has been altered in some way or other. I for one don’t relish the idea of eating genetically altered or modified food of any sort but probably we are all eating them anyway.
Genetically modified seeds that are engineered in laboratories all over the world have infiltrated into most of the crops like corn, soy, rice and wheat which make up a good percentage of much of the food we eat. More than 90% of the corn, soybean and cotton crops grown in the United States have been genetically modified to resist pesticides or insects.
The biggest issue is that our government and the large biotech corporations have purposely withheld vital information concerning the dangers of genetically modified foods from the mainstream media and outside of the public’s awareness.
