10 Things You Can Do About GMOs in the Food System

This is a great site I recently discovered, with lots of useful info on a wide spectrum of food issues. Gail Nickel-Kailing, Editor/Co-Publisher of GoodFoodWorld, recently sent out this info in GFW's weekly newsletter:

10 Things You Can Do About GMOs in the Food System

(BTW, #8 on her list should read, "To date, the best way to ensure that you are not consuming GMOs is to buy organic food. The National Organic Program does not allows any GMOs in fresh or processed foods.")

So, based on all the recent hubbub about GMOs and their impending march into our food systems, will there come a time when even growing your own vegetables is no longer a sure bet to enjoying an organic diet?

I suppose eventually that could be the case, particularly if you are growing corn, which is wind-pollinated. It would depend on how close your garden was to non-organic crops. I don't think it's something that will happen imminently, nor do I think preserving home organic gardening should be the focus of efforts to fight GMO crops.
